Redbud, our wolf mascot above, sadly passed away recently
Wolf Redbud was taken to Loomis Basin Vet in late January for a thorough exam. She had several collapsed disc spaces in her spine and neck, as well some puncture wounds along her back that were most likely caused by the other wolves. Redbud was already being treated with pain and arthritis medication and the keepers had been monitoring her condition for quite some time. After considering all the issues she was facing and her overall quality of life it was determined that the most humane thing to do was to gently euthanize her. We know she will be greatly missed by everyone. She was a beautiful girl and had many wonderful years here with all her wolf companions. She was a symbol of the Friends and will always be in our hearts.
