Title:The Allendale Wolf
Further Information:

The Allendale Wolf escaped from a private zoo worrying sheep and livestock in the Hexham area in the winter of 1904. Hunts were organised and rewards offered but it was a Settle and Carlisle train that ended the farmers nightmare. The postcard tells the story showing Cumwhinton Station, where the wolf was buried,  top left
