She’s currently being housed alone but does have other Mexican wolves living
adjacent to her.

At some point, Southwest Wildlife will introduce her to another Mexican wolf so
she will have a companion.

Officials say the wolf won’t be on display in its nature center.

The center houses 15 other Mexican wolves along with mountain lions, black
bears, bobcats and other native mammals which are on display and can be viewed
by the public.

The Mexican gray wolf was added to the federal endangered species list in 1976.
