EUREKA, MO – Once upon a time, well really it’s the first time four endangered Mexican wolf pups born in captivity have been adopted out to two different packs in two different states at the exact same time.“We did the first ever double foster of pups born in a managed care facility at the Endangered Wolf Center in St. Louis,” says Regina Mossotti, Director Animal Care & Conservation Endangered Wolf Center. “We took those puppies all the way to New Mexico and Arizona and put them in two different wild dens, in both of those states.”The chances with wolves of introducing them into the wild, into a den of newborns, and having a new mom take them in as her own?Slim to rare.But that’s exactly what happened.
