A female Mexican gray wolf born 13 years ago... has defied the odds in several ways and still roams the range in New Mexico today.

...Estrella is too old for breeding but after leading the league in litters, Estrella is now leading the league in just surviving.

"She is a great wild wolf.  To persist in the wild for eight years is a remarkable thing in itself," Dwire said, noting that the leading cause of mortality for Mexican gray wolves is being shot.Crying

I believe the average lifespan for a gray wolf in the wild is 5 to 6 years but may live up to 13 years.  In captivity, they may live to 15 years of age.
