A Red Wolf Recovery Program Setback

A Red Wolf Recovery Program Setback - by Maria Ferguson

Red Wolf Dad and Red Wolf Pups PictureThe Red Wolf Recovery Program lost a female Wolf who was scheduled for release into the wild along with her two cubs and her mate.

The female was being inoculated in preparation for her release.  She appeared to be under severe stress as Federal officials gave her shots and radio collared her.  She died a few hours later.  There is a necropsy scheduled at Clemson University this week.  Biologists hypothesize that the cause of her death was stress.  Wolves often overheat and die when being captured by humans.  There will also be an assessment done on the handling procedures to see if any errors were made.

This leaves two four month old cubs without a Mother.  Officials are debating whether to allow the cubs to be sent into the wild with their Father.  Breeding on Bull Island has not been very successful until recently and the death of this female will certainly set the program back a notch.
