Pack of wolves escaped… right into the polar bear enclosure
A pack of 5 Gray wolves (Canis lupus) at the Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winnipeg managed to dig a tunnel straight into the polar bear (Ursus maritimus) enclosure. Whoops.
Luckily for all carnivores involved, the wolves simply walked around the bear enclosure while the two female polar bears couldn’t even be bothered to wake from their slumber. Zoo staff discovered the predator party the following morning.
CTV News reports that after the wolves were separated from the bears, all animals were removed from their respective enclosures so that zoo workers could seal the tunnel. The animals are now back in their proper places, and the new Journey to Churchill exhibit is once again open for public viewing. Zoo officials have promised that the wolves aren’t actually capable of tunneling out of the exhibit into human-inhabited parts of the zoo.
No word on what the wolves have planned for their next caper.
Whoa really? ♥
A little more details here and there, and I’m not happy with the paws yet :)
There you go! I’ll reblog a picture of it for you :)
