This "9 Square Brain Dare" puzzle was created by Dennis A. Driscoll from his photographs taken of the only remaining Lobo (Buffalo) Wolves, saved from extinction in Kane, Pennsylvania, by Dr. Edward McCleery, starting in 1921. These photos were taken in September 2016 in Montana where the wolf pack is located today. The object of the puzzle is to properly align the four wolves in correct body orientation to make a three-piece by three-piece square. Fun and challenging for all!
9 square pieces make up this puzzle.
Meet the Maker
Kane Historical Preservation Society & Laughing Owl Press both had a part in the creation of this item.
In 1995 for the purpose of acquiring and preserving the old Pennsylvania Railroad Station in Kane, Pa., estimated to have been built in 1871, The Kane Depot Preservation Society was formed. The group merged with the Kane Historical Society to form the Kane Historic Preservation Society. The group operates through private donations and memberships.
The Laughing Owl Press is a full service letterpress print shop nestled in the heart of the Pennsylvania Wilds in beautiful Kane, PA. Founded by Joe and Andrea Lanich, they have been producing quality letterpress printing since 2010. Prior to opening Laughing Owl, Andrea was an architect, and Joe was a robotics engineer - both careers have contributed to the design aspect of letterpress printing, as well as upkeep of equipment and innovative ideas.
Both Laughing Owl Press and the Kane Historic Preservation Society are located in Allegheny National Forest and Surrounds; learn more about this inspiring landscape now.
