Barang: One of the wolf pair brought from Mysore died at Nandankanan Zoological Park (NZP) here on outskirts of Bhubaneswar today.
The exact cause behind the female wolf’s death will be ascertained following an autopsy.
Last year, a pair of grey wolves were added to Nandankanan. They were members of the zoo since September 29, 2018.
The two aged about two and a half years were translocated from Mysore zoo in exchange of a pair of mouse deer under the animal exchange programme.
The endangered species grey wolf is mostly found in wilderness and remote areas of Europe, Asia and North America. The wolf is one of the world’s most-researched animals in books than any other wildlife species. It is best known for its wild behaviour and hunting style.
