Nearly one hundred people attended a memorial this weekend for Romeo, the black wolf who spent about seven years in the Mendenhall Valley area, mostly in the mountains and forest around the lake and glacier. It’s believed he was killed in September 2009.

Romeo remained a wild animal but was friend to many people and their dogs who frequent the area. People from all over the world have heard or seen stories of the beloved wolf. Many of those stories were told Saturday (11-20-10)as people gathered on the shore of Mendenhall Lake to pay tribute to the wolf.
