NEW Zoo pups offer hope for endangered wolf species

Six red wolf pups spent Friday morning sitting snugly inside their shelters at the NEW Zoo.  Just 2 months old, the young wolves occasionally poked their heads outside…The red wolf breed is extremely endangered, Murach said.  In an effort to rebuild the population, the zoo is one of many across the country breeding the animal in captivity with the hopes they may eventually be released into the wild.
