Wolf Pups — Avoid Creating “Divas”

The International Wolf Center (wolf.org) just introduced new wolf pup Rieka. You can see her on their two wolf pup cams! They also have great info on their YouTube channel.

Because Rieka is a solo pup — the International Wolf Center is taking care not to “spoil” her. Normal pups compete against each other for resources and learn they can’t have anything they want the second they want it. A wolf pup who doesn’t learn this will have trouble when introduced into a wolf pack — as is the plan for Rieka.

Apparently “divas” come in both human and wolf varieties!
