They howl. They bark. They growl. And they are fascinating.On June 4, three wild representatives of the Canidae family will find their way to Genesee Country Village & Museum in a brand new program “The Fang Gang” designed to explore the fascinating world of these notable creatures that prowl every continent but Antarctica.
All these visitors—the eastern coyote, red fox and grey wolf—are designed for the chase—lithe bodies and relatively long legs. The grey wolf is the largest of the lot. It sometimes can reach more than six feet head-to-tail.
And they have long been a part of the Native American lore, representing clans and even tribes (Sac and Fox). Onondaga storyteller Perry Ground of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Confederacy will weave traditional Native American stories about these animals.
The presentation will start at 2 p.m. in the museum's Exhibition Hall. Reservations are required.
Cost is $12/$10 members with a Village Combo Pass ($20 per person) that includes admission to the historic village. Tickets are available online.
The animal program is presented by the New York Wildlife Educators Coalition.
