Ambassador Wolves


    May - 2021


Kiana was born on April 28th, 1993, at Bear Country USA, in South Dakota. A gray color phase wolf, Kiana was the second ranking female to her sister MacKenzie. She had a close bond with MacKenzie, often reinforcing MacKenzie's status with long submissive greetings and close contact. She also took her second ranking role seriously and kept Lakota in line with active and sometimes intense interactions. Her interest in food made her the star of weekly feeding programs. On December 26th, 1998, Center Staff sadly announced the death of Kiana. Visitors saw her acting normally before she appeared to have a seizure and lay down on a snowy path and die. Necropsy reports showed the possibility of a heart related metabolic seizure that caused death within minutes. She is fondly remembered and dearly missed by both wolves and humans alike. Since the web-based wolf logs were created after Kiana's death, to any visitors that remember Kiana, please send memorial comments to Curator and we will post them to her site.

For those of you who would like to honor Kiana, please consider a gift to the Wolf Care Fund in her memory. This fund goes directly to the continued care of current and future wolf pack mates.
