Wolf Pup Orphan tops Wildlife News

Hi, it’s Wolf Whistzer, newshound at the Greenygrey. We don’t usually forward Defenders of Wildlife news, but we were so moved by their story about a wolf pup (and the cute photo) that we thought we would today.

Wolf Pup Mistaken for Dog

The pup was picked up by well-intentioned campers in Idaho who thought it was a lost dog puppy. But when they took it to the local sheriff’s office it was identified as a wolf pup.

The bad news is that Defenders of Wildlife tried to find its pack for two weeks, but couldn’t locate it. The good news is that several wildlife rescue centres have offered it a home.

Good News for Wildlife

Some other good news stories in the latest Defenders of Wildlife newsletter were:

  • More land has been bought to give Florida panthers more room to roam.
  • More protection for hammerhead sharks in Costa Rican waters.
  • California condor numbers have risen from 22 to over 400 in twenty-five years.
