Red Wolf

Red Wolf

Red Wolf: Richard Merrill and Chris Worley created this lifelike wolf, using more than 2,000 slivers of steel to suggest the wolf’s fur. Originally commissioned by Ann DerGara for her gallery on Main Street, the red wolf now stands near the courthouse gazebo. The sculpture features a steel heart inside. Red wolves once were common throughout the Southeast, but had virtually disappeared by the 1960s. A program to breed the few remaining wolves in captivity was success-ful, and packs were restored to various sites throughout the country, including North Carolina, in the late 1980s. Today, about 100-120 red wolves roam in five northeastern counties of the state.
