Animal Lover and wildlife photographer Kevin Bastarache was lucky to meet with 7 wolves. He says "Its a great feeling knowing that they are all doing good and happy in the wild.

Kevin Bastarache describes himself as a lucky photographer. In an interview he talks about his passion:

"As a resident of Canmore Alberta I have had some amazing and unforgettable experiences in the wild.

"It was these rare opportunities that led me to pick up a camera and pursue photography.As a self taught photographer i have learned from trial and error. I have spent countless early mornings and exploring around waiting for the perfect opportunity."

"My goal is to capture the true essence and raw beauty of my surroundings that include Banff National Park, Lake Louise and Canmore Alberta." "I hope my pictures convey the respect and passion I have for some of the incredible animals i have been lucky enough to capture."

    They are curious but just can't be bothered. That is good.

    There was very deep snowpack that year, so many were on roads, it was claimed by some in Alberta that photographers were baiting them. Very beautiful shots, but not good that they aren't afraid of a vehicle. Too many poachers and trophy hunters in Alberta.

    I read a very deep study of ALL incidents in the US and Canada involving wolves..(bites, stalking etc) and a majority of the incidents happened because tourists (or photographers) had baited or fed the animals to get better shots...they got used to be fed and lost their natural fear and reserve. Animals need to be protected from US...only our own stupidity and the animals suffer and will be killed.
