Red Wolf Went A-Courtin'?

We've already posted video featuring behavior suggesting that red wolves F1397 and M1483 may have bred, but here's some earlier footage indicating that the course of true love never quite runs smoothly...

I just read this article, http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/outposts/2010/04/idahos-inaugural-wolfhunting-season-comes-to-a-close.html

Are these legal cases that are sponsored by Defenders of Wildlife? I cannot believe they are considering expanding the quotas for 2010-11! Everyone should be flooding their elected officials with mail urging them to restore wolves to Endangered Species List.

I am particularly interested in the Mexican wolves.
Will you inform us? Or isn't it possible, because the wolves may not be visited?

What information are you interested in?

Hi Josh,
something similar informations how you give they about Red Wolves. I assume the two Reds are the Reds visibly for visitors.
It's some time ago that I saw a Mexican Wolf in the blog.

Ah, good point. Yes, the two red wolves we usually write about are the ones "on exhibit," so it's a lot easier to observe and film them. None of the the Mexican gray wolves are on exhibit, so we do not see much of them (though we do monitor their health, of course). We do have one breeding pair of Mexican gray wolves, and of course we'll let everybody know if they (or the 2 pairs of breeding red wolves) have pups or if anything else interesting happens. I'll try to post some more about the Mexican gray wolves in the next few days.
