Seven more Canadian wolves - three females and four males - were transported to Isle Royale National Park over the weekend by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry and the National Park Service.

A release from the NPS said fundraising by the National Parks of Lake Superior Foundation and the International Wolf Center allowed six wolves to be moved from Michipicoten Island Provincial Park, where they have run out of caribou, before ice and wolf health deteriorated in such a way that successful translocation would not be possible.


A black wolf was also translocated from the mainland of Ontario.
