They are all set to have a howling Hallowe’en.
Although it is a little early in the month, eight wolf pups at the Highland Wildlife Park have been bobbing for apples.
Keepers have recently named the new arrivals to the pack, which are five females called Pollidh, Brora, Suie, Meagaidh and Sneachd and three males, Cuillin, Cairn and Torridon.
Douglas Richardson, Head of Living Collections at RZSS Highland Wildlife Park, said: “Although bobbing or dooking for apples is not exactly a standard wolf behaviour, because of the pups’ natural curiosity, they were straight into the water chasing the apples.
“Although still smaller than their older siblings, the current pups are growing at an impressive rate. Coupling novel enrichment techniques with talks by the wolves’ keepers, we hope to highlight the intelligence of a species that once roamed the hills around the Wildlife Park this Wolf Awareness Week.”
