Today morning I got a phone call of my mother and she told me that one of the Olderdissen wolves had died last night. They were bringing it in the news, but not which wolf. I don't know, I felt so uneasy and upset upon hearing that, I just jumped into my car and drove there and walked around the enclosures to search for the one I wouldn't find anymore.
I didn't find Laika, the alpha female. That indeed was a shock. I would have never ever expected that it would be Laika. I thought about Luna, the least ranked at first. And apparently she was indeed the one who got into a fight with Laika ... and caused her a fatal wound. It seems so unreal. I took a lot of photos of her just two days ago. I just uploaded one yesterday.
Much will change now within the pack.
Good bye, Laika. I will surely miss you.

You don't have to note me, but giving credit would be a fair appreciation. And feel free to show me, what you do with my photos, I'd really like to see it!
