It remains officially summer and that means there is still time to enjoy watermelons.In 2012, Wolf Haven's sanctuary co-manager, Erik Wilber, took a photo of Bono enjoying a summer melon, and the picture went viral! You can still find it all over social media sites like
Reddit. Enjoy it again plus pictures of our resident wolves enjoying watermelon THIS year.
