Another Wolf Lands at Isle Royale

The second year of the National Park Service’s wolf relocation project has kicked off with a capture of a wolf on Michigan’s mainland and a flight to Isle Royale.

Mlive reports the 70-pound male that’s believed to be about three years old was captured this week. The wolf that was flown by seaplane joins 14 others already on island. Officials hope to ultimately bring as many as 30 new wolves to the island that’s been overrun by more than 2,000 moose.
