Maya, a seven-year-old resident female wolf at the International Wolf Center in Ely, Minnesota, was euthanized Tuesday after a veterinary determination that a compound fracture and dislocation to her left hind leg could not be repaired.

In the past several months there have been several tests of status from the younger pack members towards the dominant male, Grizzer, but Maya has shown intense dominance control over the entire pack. The injury occurred sometime after 5 pm on Monday, when the final daily check on the wolves revealed pack dynamics to be calm.

Rest in peace, Maya.Broken Heart

How sad.  I remember when they were born.  Broken Heart  Her Sister Nyssa was killed by possibly her or other packmates after a spay in 2005.Broken Heart  One of our prior forum members Barnloft got to see them.  She fell in love with Grizzer and now he's being retired.  Sad
