One year ago, on March 24, the Discovery Island wolf Takaya was shot by a killed hunter. Cadboro Bay’s Cheryl Alexander brought his life into focus through her incredible photography and new book, Takaya: Lone Wolf.
Cheryl Alexander has been studying and documenting Takaya’s life on both Discovery and Chatham islands for years. Her film about this remarkable animal, has also been broadcast on CBC and the BBC to great acclaim.
Earlier this year, artist Ian Lowe contributed a metal sculpture of Takaya on Discovery Island, accompanying the mural by artist Paul Archer.
Victoria’s Times Colonist also featured a wonderful story on Takaya one year after his death, available here: https://www.timescolonist.com/news/local/jack-knox-one-year-after-his-victoria-romp-takaya-the-wolf-lives-on-1.24271933. Photo credit: Times Colonist
