Maya

Maya, a Great Plains subspecies of the gray wolf, was born on May 5, 2004 and was a littermate to Grizzer. She matured to an adult female weight of 80 lbs. She was best described as the predator of the pack, if something is in quick motion, Maya was sure to track it and pounce.

Maya was euthanized Tuesday, March 1st, 2011 after a veterinary determination that a compound fracture and dislocation to her left hind leg could not be repaired. The decision to euthanize Maya was made in accordance with requirements of the USDA Animal Welfare Act and an organizational euthanasia policy approved by the Centerís Vet Care Team. Maya's death was a tragic loss and the dominance displayed by Maya will not be forgotten. She was a pack leader, and showed her status despite her smaller size. For those of you who would like to honor Maya, please consider a gift to the Wolf Care Fund in her memory. This fund goes directly to the continued care of current and future wolf pack mates.
