Kgosi is a large, magnificent, black male Canadian wolf who came to Wolf Watch with his sister Madadh in April 1999. Despite being a most impressive alpha male his temperament is superb and well balanced.

He and his sister, Madadh, formed half of a litter born surplus to requirements. Three months of feeding, bottom wiping and tummy rubbing preceded their introduction to Ayla, a female European Wolf who became their surrogate mum. Superseding Tony, Ayla catered for their maternal requirements and day to day education. Since Ayla sadly passed away at the grand old age of 15, Kgosi occupies his hillside enclosure with just his sister. He’s assumed a daily routine of checking and scent marking the boundaries of the enclosure. This includes a self-catering programme, often hunting down big game such as pygmy shrews, voles and the occasional mole.

Because Kgosi and his sister are well socialised they have been able to continue the ambassadorial role fulfilled previously by Ayla. Travelling with Tony to several venues for talks and presentations, his behaviour has so far been impeccable. When greeting humans his approach is distinctly different from Madadh. He appears respectful, without being over submissive and the duration of the meeting is governed by his interest and not the desire of the visitor.

Kgosi’s most noticeable feature is his beautiful amber eyes which indicate a depth of intelligence and understanding. We have observed with interest his development to become the powerful wolf of considerable size that he is today.
