Among the wolves

Memoirs of a wolf handler

Toni Shelbourne

One girl, eleven wolves – and a whole host of heart-warming stories.
The fascinating story of Toni’s life with eleven charismatic wolves at the UK Wolf Conservation Trust, Berkshire, England. Over ten years she handled, raised, cared for and nursed these amazing creatures, and within these pages you will come to know the characters; laugh at their sense of fun, mourn at their passing – and learn to love them as she does.

This fascinating book tells of how Torak and the other wolves at the Trust were hand-reared from cubs, how they worked as ambassadors for their wild cousins, raising funds for wild wolf projects, and educating the public.


More importantly, the book reveals what they got up to once the public went home, and it was just Toni and her wolves, and is a genuinely candid insight into the world of the socialised captive wolf, wolf behaviour, and personality … but, above all, tolerance.

Describing some of the best and worst of times, discover what happens behind closed doors when the public goes home, leaving just Toni and the wolves ...
