U.S., Canadian Officials Relocate Four Wolves to Isle Royale
Officials from both the U.S. and Canada have relocated four wolves to Isle Royale National Park.
Earlier this winter, severe weather on both sides of the border hampered the ability to capture and transfer wolves.
However, National Park Service staff worked with Ontario Natural Resources officials and, over the course of four days, successfully relocated the Canadian wolves.
They include two mainland wolves, one female and one male from the same pack near Wawa, Ontario.
The other two wolves are males from Michipicoten Island Provincial Park.
All wolves were given health assessments and deemed healthy enough for transfer and release.
With the wolves, the National Park Service aims to restore predators on the island, which are a key part of its ecosystem.
