Two more wolves were moved to Isle Royale National Park this week as efforts continued to ensure predators would be on the island to counter the burgeoning moose population there.
On Tuesday, a she-wolf was transported by the National Park Service boat BEAVER from Grand Portage, Minnesota, and released in the park. Two days later, another female wolf was flown by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to the island and carried by park staff over a hiking trail to the release site. This brings the total number of wolves relocated since Sept. 24 to four.
