Goodbye To Mexican Wolf Who Unknowingly Touched So Many
Dear WCC Friends,
It is with a heavy heart that I share sad news about a special wolf. Mexican gray wolf F810, nicknamed “Scarlet” by her adoring fans, passed away today. Although F810 resided off-exhibit, the beautiful loba crept into our homes and hearts via webcam, opening the door to understanding the importance of her endangered kin and our efforts to recover them. Her necropsy (autopsy for animals) revealed that she died of a pyometra – a uterine infection not uncommon in older intact canids.
Thank you for your support,
WCC Executive Director
