With kids out of school for yet another week and a half, parents and guardians may be looking for something to do to keep them entertained.

The Miller Park Zoo in Bloomington is hoping you'll consider bringing them out to check out a new group of red wolves that were brought to them this winter. Zoo Superintendent Jay Teztloff explains they have received the pair of the endangered species that are brought into captivity and then released back into the wild after threat of extinction.

The Zoo has been successful with various breeding pairs of red wolves in recent years and Tetzloff notes they are focused on long term efforts to preserve the wolves for future generations. Native to North Carolinam he hopes to see them move into other states in the near future.

Tetzloff explains the Miller Park Zoo does its best to prepare wolves that are eventually released into captivity through teaching themselves, especially when it comes to tracking down food.
