The story took place at England’s largest private zoo, the Coswold Wildlife Park in Beeford. The fact is that a she-wolf had somehow managed to get over the electric fence and run away.
Staff tried to catch her, but the animal was moving towards a busy road in the park, where many visitors were passing. So she had to be put to sleep. Police are investigating how three-year-old Amber was able to escape, and whether her putting to sleep was justified.
Her five 11-week-old pups were left in the park at the time. The wolf Ash, the “husband” of the deceased wolf, took care of them. The cubs have become accustomed to their new “head of the family” and are calm and obedient.
