Editor’s note: The video included with this story shows newborn red wolves at the N.C. Zoo, not the pups at the Durham museum.
Durham’s Museum of life and Science says three of its four red wolf pups have escaped their habitat enclosure.
The rare pups were within a fence surrounding the outdoor campus, according to a Facebook post from the museum.
The pups don’t pose a threat to visitors at the attraction, which is less than five miles outside downtown Durham, and two adult red wolves remained behind a fence.
The wolves are part of the Red Wolf Species Survival Program, a collection of zoos and nature centers around the United States dedicated to the conservation of red wolves, reported The Herald-Sun in Durham.
