Endangered red wolf pups were born in North Carolina. This is the first time such will be occurring in North Carolina Zoo. The 12 pups and their mothers are all in good condition. Due to the birth of these pups, the number of red wolves has increased to 36, making the North Carolina zoo the second biggest pack in the United States.
Washington’s Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium is US largest pack. The red wolves are presently considered as endangered since about 20 red wolves are in the world. One of these liters was born to parents Sassy and Flint, giving people visiting the zoo the opportunity to see the pups.

The endangered red wolf pups will be visible in mid-June, when they might have started venturing outside the den. When the pups grow older, the zoo will be moving the wolf family to the non-public breeding place.
Congratulations to the North Carolina Zoo for playing an essential part in the survival of this critically endangered species. esSecretary Reid Wilson, N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resource
He further maintained that the birth of these wolves is very important since matured wolves are always taken to other breeding packs to bring this species back from extinction. He hopes that more red wolves can be placed in the wild.
