During a real life wolf feeding you will have the unique opportunity to observe wolves feeding as they would naturally in the wild. We are having a live feeding along with zoo keepers giving an educational message at 10:30 am Saturday October 8th. Make sure you’re at the zoo early for this experience.
Wolves in the Mexican Gray Wolf Species Survival Plan such as these or their offspring may be reintroduced into the wild and is important to maintain the wolves natural feeding habits and behaviors that make them wild animals. In order to provide real life feeding experiences for the zoo’s wolf pack, they receive carcasses from the Pa. State Game Commission that allows for unique opportunities to observe wolves feeding as they would naturally in the wild. Wolves are predators that hunt in packs with skillful cooperation to take down large prey such as deer and elk. These prey animals are an essential part of the wolves diet and any remains are consumed by other animals such as rave, bald eagles, vulture, fox and bear.
