TENINO, Washington (AP) - Five rare red wolf pups have ventured outside their den at Wolf Haven International sanctuary south of Olympia

KING-TV (https://kng5.tv/21sPL4Y ) reports that the pups are just 5 weeks old, meaning it’s still too early for staff to know which are female or male.

This is the sanctuary’s third litter of red wolf pups.

Staffers say the pups will stay in the Tenino-based sanctuary for at least a year. They will likely remain in captivity because the federal government is not releasing red wolves into the wild.

Wolf Haven attracts about thousands of visitors each year for guided tours and weekend “howl-ins.”
