Wolf, winter programs set at Red River Zoo

FARGO – The Red River Zoo will host two programs this month related to wolves and how animals keep warm in the wild during the winter.

The “Feast or Famine!” program, which takes place from 7 to 8 p.m. Thursday, will teach about the gray wolf’s hunting and feeding behavior. Participants also will be able to watch the wolves eat their evening meal – a full deer carcass.

The “Wild Winter” program will explore the physical and behavioral changes animals undergo to survive the winter. Participants may attend one, two or all three days of the program, which will take place from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturdays on Jan. 5, 19 and 26.

The fee for each program is $15 for zoo members or $20 for non-members. Space is limited, and those interested are encouraged to reserve spots by calling (701) 277-9240 or visiting www.redriverzoo.org.
