News: Two gray wolves were taken from the Grand Portage Indian Reservation in Minnesota aboard a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service plane to Isle Royale. The wolves, a 4-year-old female and a 5-year-old male, were taken to separate release sites, and well away from the island's two remaining wolves. Up to 30 wolves are expected to be caught in Minnisota, Michigan's UP and Ontario and relocated to the island.
