Despite nearly being made extinct by man's unwarranted fear of these beautiful animals, wolves are alive and well In the Sibillini Mountains. It is extremely rare to see them except in the mountains themselves. However, about a month ago, one paid a 3am visit to La Mela Rosa! Responding to the barking of our dogs, Rob went downstairs and out the kitchen door to discover a single wolf sitting on our driveway glistening sliver in the moonlight. He, the wolf, was completley unconcerned and unafraid and took off at a gentle trot when it suited him. He was a magnificent sight.
