Wolf Pup Cross Fostering / Brookfield Zoo


On 22 April, five Mexican Gray Wolf Puppies were born to Zana and Flint at Brookfield Zoo. As part of the US Fish and Wildlife Services (USFWS) Mexican Gray Wolf Recovery Program, two puppies were cross fostered with a wild pack. Staff worked with USFWS to transfer two of Brookfield Zoo’s pups to New Mexico, and in return, brought two wild pups back to join the Brookfield Zoo pack. This exchange of pups increases genetic diversity in the endangered Mexican Gray Wolf population — via Youtube
