ASHEBORO — The second largest population of American red wolves under human care is at the N.C. Zoo.

There are 18 American red wolves living at the zoo’s off-site breeding area, in addition to the two that are visible to guests. Three pups were born April 18 as part of the park’s American red wolf breeding program. Additionally, one of the animal care specialists, Chris Lasher, is the vice coordinator for the Species Survival Plan for American red wolves.
