The pups‘ mother had numerous liters that have failed, and Zoo spokesperson Susan Lyndakers says they are hoping this pair will thrive in their new Indiana home.

Evansville Zoo officials are busy trying to meet the hungry demands of two Mexican wolf pups.

The male pups were born last week in New York and were transported to the Mesker Park Zoo to be fostered. They are an extremely rare breed with only about 300 left in the world.

The pups‘ mother had numerous liters that have failed, and Zoo spokesperson Susan Lyndakers says they are hoping this pair will thrive in their new Indiana home.

“We are asking them to be attentive to them and show them what being a wolf is all about,” Lyndaker says.

They are being bottled fed by staff and will hopefully be fostered by wolves at the park. The pups could be on display to the public in four to six weeks.
