Why This Team of People Is 'Hunting' Wolf Pups in Order to Save Them
At the Wolf Conservation Center in upstate New York, Rebecca Bose and her team of veterinarians and volunteers hunt wolves for a very important cause.
You see, they're trying to save the critically endangered Mexican gray wolf. By hunting the pups and bringing them to see doctors at the center, where they are given a full health checkup, the team is slowly replenishing the diminished population.
Bose, a curator at the center, told InsideEdition.com there are only 140 or so Mexican wolves living in the wild. They may look cute and cuddly, but don't mistake them for dogs, she warned.
"Wolves, on the inside, they're just like dogs. The blood work is the same. The vaccines are the same. All the general care is pretty much the same," she explained. "The big difference between wolves and dogs is behavior.
"We have created the dog to want to serve people, to want to be our companions, to want to work with us. The wolf has no interest in doing anything for us."
In addition to the Mexican gray wolf, the center is also working to rebuild the population of red wolves.
