Pepe – 04/03/2009 to 01/04/2017

It is with the deepest of regret and a heavy heart we have to announce that Pepe passed away on Saturday 1st April 2017.

We informed Pepe’s “adoptors” last evening about the sad news before making this general announcement to all our members. We had high hopes that he was making a recovery from the illness that we had announced a few weeks ago, regrettably this was not the case and he had a sudden relapse and died on Saturday.

Pepe has spent nine years with us at Wolf Watch and had the best care and attention that we could provide, and we feel certain that he enjoyed his life with us. We will miss him dearly and so will his long term partner Callow who is already missing him and exhibiting similar behaviour to that we have seen before in these circumstances. As with all the wolves Pepe had his own favourite place to lay down in his enclosure to sunbathe and snooze and as if in a state of mourning Callow is now spending much of her time laying in Pepe’s spot. Pepe has been buried overlooking the valley and in the sight of his friends.

We would like to dedicate the BBC “Inside Out” programme screened on 31st March 2017 to Pepe’s memory, as this is the last footage taken of him enjoying daily life with Callow, and our latest additions Sansa and Rickon.

    I am saddened in my own world as well as all those that my sweet precious beautiful Elsa, touched with her smile. She was tragically taken from this world only 2 days before Pepe had passed.
