The female wolf paced back and forth within the kennel. The male, sensing something was about to happen, watched intensely. They’d both been waiting for two weeks for this moment to arrive, and here it was.
The female was about to be released into the main enclosure after having acclimated, as best she could, to her new surroundings. She’d come from another facility one state to the west of us and was now going to become part of the exhibit, the Red Wolf Exhibit.
The goal is for the two wolves to breed. Breeding usually takes place in February and pups are born in April or May. Of course, whether or not the pair actually breeds is up to them. We’re just going to have to wait and see what develops. In the mean time, stop by and see her for yourself.
