Wolf nominated to be the USA’s National Mammal in 1981

Although Mrs. Mary Trindal’s pitch to Congress for making the wolf our country’s National Mammal was unsuccessful, her passionate plea to save the dwindling population is still important.  See page 6 of the Animal Health Foundation‘s magazine for the details.  The image is Seton’s “Sleeping Wolf” which hangs at the Seton Gallery on the Academy for the Love of Learning’s campus in Santa Fe, NM.
