Tracked via collars, newly transplanted Isle Royale NP wolves feeding on provisioned moose carcasses

Two wolves transplanted to Isle Royale National Park in Lake Superior are getting their bearings, roaming the park's forests and feeding on moose carcasses left to orient the animals to a specific area of the park.


The two, a 4-year-old female and a 5-year-old male, were taken from different pack territories on the Grand Portage Indian Reservation in northeastern Minnesota and flown to Isle Royale last week. Since their arrival, the wolves have been seen on wildlife cameras and tracked via a GPS monitoring collar. They've moved around the island and fed on provisioned moose left for them.
