Thanks for posting. I was wondering if this was going to happen this winter or not, but gave up checking regularly.

Surprised to see 2 mainland wolves added, thought all were to come from Michpicotin.

Nice. Overall, there's now a nice mix of males and females wolves on the island. Hope a few find each other and fall in love.

I also hope the new wolves stay put, and not cross the current ice bridge back to Ontario.

Read that this happens more often when the wolf is within 80 miles of its origin. So maybe not. Interesting to see what happens.

This is an excellent article, with much more detail on the capture and release than in the original NPS press release.
