Dr. Kim Martin, center, a veterinarian from Hawks Prairie Veterinary Hospital, offers advice about blood drawing Thursday as Wolf Haven International hosted its 10th annual Wildlife Handling and Chemical Immobilization course near Tenino. Students received practical experience in examining and handling wolves. The course is one of only two in the United States that offers hands-on experience with wolves. It is taught by veterinarians Martin; Dr. Mark Johnson, director of Global Wildlife Resources Inc.; and Dr. Jerry Brown from Yelm Veterinary Hospital.
