A Colorado man who provides safe haven for unwanted wolves found himself stranded in unfamiliar territory while traveling on an educational tour in Wyoming.
“Our bus died, our motor had a catastrophic failure,” said Kent Weber, founder of Mission Wolf in a phone call with CBS4.
Weber, his wife Tracy Brooks, and three wolves were headed to the West Coast when disaster struck.
“We had to put our bus on a tow truck with the wolves in it and get towed 3 or 4 hours into Salt Lake City where we’re sitting right now,” Weber added.
Since Easter the Mission Wolf delegation has been camped out at Smith Power Products, a diesel engine repair center. They eat and sleep on the bus.
The three wolves — Magpie, Abraham and Zeab have pretty much made themselves home.
“These are unusual wolves,” Weber said. “They were born in captivity and enjoy meeting people.”
