Binder Park Zoo In Battle Creek Is The New Home To Two Mexican Gray Wolves
Mexican Gray Wolves Are Not Strangers To Binder Park.
Recently , Binder Park Zoo had to say good-bye to their beloved Mexican Gray Wolf named Phoenix. Due to age and health issues he was put down, and he has been missed very much since his passing.
On November 18th two brothers arrived at the zoo. The new Mexican Gray Wolves are 2 1/2 years old and Mlive.com reported that....
"Lead zookeeper Kathryn Sippel says the wolves aren't used to seeing people yet, as the wolf center did not have visitors every day, so they have been curious but cautious as they adapt to their new habitat. "Wolves will either spend most of their day either foraging for food or sleeping, so ideally we would like them to relax and lay down, but they're still just a little bit nervous."
Zookeeper Sippel says it is good to hear the howl of a wolf again at the park.
The brothers will be ready to receive guests of the Zoo on December 16th, and zookeeper chats about the wolves will be available for all to enjoy. Plus, is you visit the zoo, you will have the grand oppurtuntiy to help name the wolves by voting at the event.
According to Binder Park Zoo...
The cost to attend ZooLights is $5 for members and $6 for non-members, and children under 2 years of age get in for free."
See you there!
