This species of wolf is believed to have less than 100 living in the wild today, and the Binder Park Zoo was part of the effort to conserve them – however the zoo had not long ago sent their females away for breeding at other locations leaving their wolf enclosure empty. It seems there is a lot of love in Michigan for these wolves.

The new wolf brothers at Binder Park Zoo were cautiously testing their new home Monday, but one person was positive they were in the right place.

Mackenzie Couch, 12, watched the wolves roam the enclosure at the zoo but she had already met them about a week ago.

The Kalamazoo girl had raised $1,710 as of Monday to help pay for the cost of bringing wolves back to the zoo, having sacrificed her Christmas presents to get as much money to the cause as possible. Donations can still be made at www.gofundme.com/mackenzieswolves. Continue Reading
