BATTLE GROUND, Ind. (WLFI) - With a $100,000 price tag a year, Battle Ground's Wolf Park is expensive to keep running. To help with costs the park hosted its biggest fundraiser of the year Saturday.
Walk for Wolves allows participants to walk with the wolves. Walkers raised money and formed packs. They took turns walking around the park.
Wolf Park Assistant Manager Dana Drenzek said a lot of money is raised through visitor admission costs, but the park loses that income when it closes in November.
"This fundraiser actually helps us stay in the black during that season so we don't have to borrow money and go into the red at all," Drenzek said.
There was not a fundraising goal. Drenzek said any money helps.
Wolf Park closes November 30 and reopens in May.
