The Bay Beach wildlife sanctuary has welcomed two wolf pups into their care from a sanctuary in Florida.

The playful and energetic female pups are part of the sanctuary's effort to revitalize its gray wolf program, according to Lori Bankson, curator of animals. The facility hopes to eventually have a full pack of six gray wolves in its exhibit, and the acquisition is part of an effort to feature species native to Wisconsin.

The pups donít have names yet, and Bankson anticipates they will hold a contest to name the wolves. A public viewing of the pups is planned for the near future as they near the end of their quarantine and acclimation periods.
