Gray wolves leaving Buffalo Zoo's Arctic Edge

The young gray wolves in the Buffalo Zoo’s Arctic Edge exhibit will be leaving for their new home on Wednesday.

Zoo officials say siblings Timber and Willow, who turn 2-years-old in April, were not adapting to their habitat as expected. After six months of observations, zookeepers made the decision to transfer the pair to another zoo with a different enclosure.

This spring, modifications will be made to the Arctic Edge exhibit to allow an Arctic Fox to take over that space.
