Designer: Ness Creek Studio (Big River, SK)
When Built: 1998
It was an idea from the Chamber of Commerce and was built to help give the town of Spiritwood an identity (being close to the north and the wild).
Normally wolves howl while standing. This wolf is seated on its hind legs and howling to represent Spiritwood setting itself apart from the rest.
The white rock was moved into town from a nearby farm. One First Nations elder has called it a symbolic white buffalo rock and it holds special meaning.
