One of the newborn pups, born April 26, is to be released back into
the wild, and was own to Arizona on May 9. She was placed in the
Sa el wild wolf pack, where the breeding female had just given birth
to her own litter.
e Wolf Conservation Center describes it as cross-fostering, which
is a coordinated event where captive-born pups are introduced into a
similar-aged wild litter to be raised by surrogate (basically substitute)
“Trumpet’s pup is part of the critical e ort to save her imperiled spe-

Center. “At just two pounds, she’s a North American superhero! She’s
