Officials with the Binder Park Zoo in Calhoun County, MI sadly reported that a Mexican gray wolf pup died after being infected with Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE).
The Battle Creek zoo says tests are also pending on a second gray wolf pup that died the day before.
According to the zoo, the Mexican gray wolf is the rarest subspecies of gray wolf, with only 131 counted in the wild in 2018
Zoo officials plan to evaluate the zoo grounds to identify potential areas for mosquito treatment. The zoo will also be providing visitors with access to courtesy “bug spray stations” throughout the zoo.
The complimentary bug spray stations are located at the Entrance Gate, International Depot, Zawadi Traders (African Village), Twiga Overlook and Pride Provisions (lion exhibit) for guests to use.
