Time is running out to see Funny River Fire wolf pups

By KTVA CBS 11 News 12:17 PM July 4, 2014
ANCHORAGE –

The five wolf pups rescued from the Funny River Fire are headed to the Lower 48 soon.

July 14 will be the public’s last chance to meet the pups before they head to their new home at the Minnesota Zoo.

The cubs spend most of their time outdoors and can be seen during the Alaska Zoo’s normal hours — 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. — depending on the weather, said Jill Myer, Alaska Zoo director of development.

Fire crews working the Funny River Fire discovered the pups. Zookeepers have been caring for them since May 27.
