He's the mystery lone wolf nicknamed 'the guardian of the city' that has been keeping Wolves in Wolves hunters guessing.

Claude was spotted by, from left, Bailey Drohan, seven, Lyndsey Drohan, Sydney Drohan, two, Riley Drohan, nine and Sarah Allington

So just where is Claude today? The elusive 30th sculpture that never makes his den in the same place twice has been on the prowl everywhere around the city including House of Frasier, Compton Hospice shop (Garrick Street), Castle Galleries, MRG, Wilko’s and Home and Office Stationers.

This week he has been spotted in the Shop in the Square but where he is today is anyone's guess!

So far the trail has attracted thousands of people since it kicked off on July 15 according to council bosses and runs for another six weeks.

Claude is from the City Ambassador Team who are the city centre’s friendly and welcoming points of contact, walking-talking tourist and city information points.

Claude joins Heidi, Jo, Mick, Sally and Wendy, and together they patrol the city centre giving directions, proving helpful information to visitors and also letting businesses know what happening in their city centre too. His wings depict him as a guardian of the city.

Claude is the only ‘mobile’ wolf, he will be found in different places in the city centre until Sept 24. For updates on where you can find Claude keep an eye out on our Facebook and Twitter pages.


Councillor John Reynolds, Cabinet Member for City Economy, has the said Wolves sculptures are attracting people from across the globe and we all be "very proud" of them.

He added: “We are delighted with how well the Wolves in Wolves art project has been received by residents, visitors and the business community.

"We’ve had people visit the city from as far away as China, USA, Canada as well as more closer to home such as Scotland.

"All our visitors have been very positive about the wolf sculptures and the experience they’ve had in the city, it’s something we should all be very proud of.

"The trail has been a great way of getting people to be more active, discover the city and see what it has to offer.

"If anyone hasn’t already done the trail I’d encourage them to explore the wolves before the project comes to an end at the end of September.”
