Shaggy wolf makeover

It’s that time of year, spring and getting ready for the visitors, when our shaggy wolf gets a makeover. Doug the warden waited until the worst frosts were over to avoid snapping the shoots that needed weaving back into the sculpture. It’s now looking smart once more with a tonne of new bark chippings mulching its base. If all goes to plan the picket fence will be moved back to protect people from falling off the cliff and allow children to crawl through its stomach and out of the tail. What big eyes you’ve got grandmother!
