canis lupus arctos, Arctic wolf
Born 8th March 2011 at Parc Safari
Siblings: Sikko (F), Massak (M)
Pukak is now entering his 2nd year. Born in a snow storm in 2011, the three cubs would not have survived if it had not been for the quick intervention and expertise of the team from Parc Safari. The trio were cold and showing very little signs of life when found. They were hand reared and once recovered, they needed to be found a home. Through one of the Trust’s Directors it was agreed the three young Arctic wolves would make the trip to the UK from Canada once they were 10 weeks old and, at the time, become the only Arctic wolves in Britain. Pukak is slowly getting used to the sights and smells of the English countryside whilst out and about on walks.
