A New Home for Alaska Zoo Wolf Cubs

Laura Oates / CBS 11 News Reporter / 8-10-07

The wolf cubs at the Alaska Zoo were checking out some new digs Thursday evening. The wolves have a new pen that's at least three times bigger than their old one. Zoo workers say the animals, now just over a year old, needed more space to romp and roam. The animals were moved Thursday morning. From the looks of things, they are already right at home.

"Rolling in everything and jumping around and investigating the dens. We had walked them in there a couple of times, cause they go on their daily walks. We have walked them up in the pen, but they're off leash and they can explore and chase each other around," said Shannon Jensen of the Alaska Zoo.

As for getting a good look at the wolves, workers say they are so friendly, they are
likely to run right up to the fence. They also plan to keep taking the wolves for daily walks around the zoo.
