The North Carolina Zoo is asking the public to vote for names for six American red wolf pups born in April.
For the first time in two decades, this red wolf litter was born on the wolves’ public habitat, giving Zoo guests a rare chance to view the pups for a limited time. Most litters are born in the Zoo’s red wolf breeding area, which is closed to the public. The parents of this litter (four females, two males) are Flint (male) and Sassy.
Members of the public can cast their vote for their favorite names among those chosen by the Zoo’s red wolf keepers. The names are based on rivers in the Southeastern U.S. where critically endangered red wolves once ranged. Use the link below to cast your vote:
The names to choose from are: Catawba, Edisto, Haw, Harper, Warrior, Eno, Fisher, Pearl, Waccamaw, and Swannanoa.
