Canis lupus arctos, Arctic wolf
Born 8th March 2011 at Parc Safari
Siblings: Sikko (F), Massak (M)
Born during 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 and were hand reared to recovery, when they needed to be found a home.
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 a lower ranking male of the pack and has rapidly adjusted to life in the British countryside.
