‘Misha’, the European Grey Wolf
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of one of our oldest and most beloved animals, ‘Misha’, the European Grey Wolf.
Over the past 17 years, Misha has been an amazing ambassador for her species, helping to generate thousands for wolf conservation around the world.
She was what is regarded as a ‘socialised wolf’. This was due to being hand reared after coming to Paradise as a 10-day old pup due to the litter having to be rescued from a flooded den.
Throughout her life at Paradise, Misha built up amazing relationships with a number of our keepers and volunteers, who devoted their time to ensuring she was able to live a great and happy life.
We will all remember her for the beautiful and awesome wolf that she was. Her legacy will live on with the support Paradise Wildlife Park will continue to show for wildlife conservation the world over.
Pia, one of the trustees of our charity, the Zoological Society of Hertfordshire, was particularly close to Misha and has used the following quote to sum up her feelings upon Misha’s passing…
“There is an old belief that on some distant shore, beyond the realms of grief, dear friends will meet once more.”
We would like to say a special thank you to Mark Haumann, our vet for all of his support at this difficult time.
Rest in Peace Misha, gone but never forgotten. We love you.
