Staff Report

BELVIDERE, Ill. — Summerfield Zoo in Belvidere, Ill., has announced some very special new arrivals. The pair of gray wolves that reside at the zoo gave birth to a beautiful litter of pups, and the public is invited to see these very special new additions.

For the next two weekends only (June 7-8 and 14-15) pictures will be available with the wolf pups.

Summerfield Zoo is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturdays, and 11 a.m.-4 p.m., Sundays. Admission is $8 per adult, $6 per senior, and $5 per child, and all proceeds go to the care of all the animals, many of which are rescues.

While babies are always exciting, these wolf pups are an incredible opportunity to help educate the public about the species. Be sure that you don’t miss out on the opportunity to see them and get your picture taken with them.”
