Gray wolves, Siskiyou and Sequoia, residents of the Oakland Zoo’s new California Trail, recently parented a litter of four pups.
The two adults came to the zoo in April 2018 and staff had high hopes the pair would bond and have pups to form a pack. Siskiyou, 6, the female, delivered on May 13, and she is a first-time mother. She and her mate, Sequoia, had created five dens in their 2-acre habitat.
The adults were born in captivity and were moved to the zoo through a partnership with the California Wolf Center. The pack will remain at the zoo.
