Great Smoky Mountain National Park Gets Red Wolves

Record #:
The last red wolf sighting in the North Carolina Mountains was in the 1930s. Two mated pairs of red wolves, sent to the Great Smoky Mountains this winter, will be released into the wild in August as part of a reintroduction project. The animals will be held in an acclimation pen, and it is hoped they will breed and produce pups by the spring. Before release, the adult wolves will be fitted with radio collars, and the pups, if any, will be implanted with internal radio transmitters for tracking their movements.
