Liberated From Midwest Research Centre
wolves released, one remains free after a pen was opened in an overnight
action. Monday morning, workers discovered three wolves had been released
from a pen at the Wildlife Science Centre in Forest Lake, MN. Two wolves
have been recaptured, but one remains free. Only 350 of the rare Mexican
Grey Wolves are known to exist. On Sunday night or early Monday morning,
person(s) unknown climbed the centre’s front fence and used a long
pole to pry open a latch on the Mexican wolf pen. Predictably, the wolves
captors have called this freeing of caged animals “ecoterrorism”.
The executive director of the center stated - ““I’m completely
convinced this is an anti-hunting group that is out to get me”. The
Wildlife Science Center is said to house bears, wolves, lynx, cougars and
other animals used for “education and research”. The facility
is on Broadway Avenue, west of Forest Lake.
