The Zoo’s Nine Wolf Pups Celebrate Their First Birthday

The Moonridge Animal Park hosted a birthday party for the nine wolf pups, who celebrate their first birthday today, April 9. Here, they eye the piñatas being prepared for them.

Just one wolf poked at the pink piggy-like piñata to get started...

...though all pups enjoyed the piñatas' contents of peanut butter and sardines.

The nine wolf pups--as well as their mother, a gray Timber Wolf named Wakiza--live at the zoo year-round. The Moonridge Animal Park opens at 10am daily, and summer season hours begin Memorial Day weekend. The zoo celebrates 50 years in Big Bear Lake with a Blues for the Zoo Concert on August 7.
