Derek's Story

Derek and the Wolf

As an active fireman and a keen motorcyclist , Derek’s hobby was a little more relaxing. As a keen animal lover, Derek spent a lot of spare time photographing wildlife and visiting his local zoo. One of his photography projects was to photograph a group of hand-reared wolves which he enjoyed immensely.

When Derek was asked about his Silver Wish. He said that he would love to see wolves again and if possible be able to stroke one.

Following a Facebook campaign, the home were contacted by Rob and Susie Louth from Animals UK who provide specially trained animals for the film industry and who said that they would be delighted to make Derek’s wish come true.

A few weeks later, Derek made the trip to Lincolnshire to see Rob and Susie and their beautiful wolf Lycan. Derek was able to stroke Lycan which absolutely made his day.

He was so delighted to have his Silver Wish come true and thanks go to Rob and Susie Louth for helping us to make it happen.
