The wild wolf puppy from the Ketchum area is on his way to a new home in Virginia.  The pup was taken from the wild last month by out-of-town campers who thought it was a domestic dog.  The underweight and frightened animal ended up at Zoo Boise for care and treatment.

A puppy, picked up by campers in Ketchum last month, is a wild wolf.  The Idaho Department of Fish and Game confirmed that Tuesday after a DNA test came back positive. 

Out of town campers picked up what they thought was a lost puppy and took it to a vet.  The pup ended up at Zoo Boise, who has been caring for it.  He is gaining weight and his health is improving. 

Fish and Game searched for a wolf pack near where the pup was found, but couldn’t find one.  They speculate the pack was moving the puppy and may have been disturbed by traffic on the road.
