SOUTH SALEM, N.Y. -- Visitors to South Salem's Wolf Conservation Center Saturday got to see an Easter egg hunt with a twist -- it was wolves doing the hunting.
Adults and kids got to hide dozens of eggs in the wolves' pen (sans the wolves, of course), then watch (from the outside of the pen) as three wolves -- Alawa, Nikai and Zephyr -- were allowed back into their area, then sniffed them out and ate the treats.
The center's Operations Manager, Spencer Wilhelm, said the wolves hunt down the eggs by using their senses of sight and smell, though on this windy day the smelling part wasn't so easy.
The visitors also got a tour of the center, which 23 wolves call home.
