Minot zoo gets gray wolves from SD's Black Hills

MINOT, N.D. — Minot's Roosevelt Park Zoo has introduced its new wolves — a pair of year-old female grays that came from a tourist attraction in South Dakota's Black Hills.

The Minot Daily News reports that the zoo presented Luna and Denali to the public on Friday. They were obtained last November from Bear Country USA, a drive-through wildlife park in western South Dakota.

Employees of Enbridge Pipelines got to name the wolves. About 75 employees from the Bakken oil patch firm volunteered more than 600 hours to the zoo's rebuilding efforts after the flood.

The zoo's carnivore keeper, Lana Erickson, says she's excited to work with the additions.
