Update from Deputy GM Menita Prasad

On Aug 16, we discovered our perimeter fence and grey wolf enclosure were compromised from what appears to be unlawful entry and vandalism.

We reached out to BCCOS and Langley RCMP, who responded promptly, provided assistance, and are continuing to collaborate with us.

Over the last few days GVZoo staff have worked tirelessly, to locate and safely recover the members of our wolf pack.

We were able to secure all but two.

As a result of this senseless act our wolf pack has lost two family members.

We were hopeful for a positive outcome for all members of our wolf pack but tragically we were heartbroken this morning to discover, Chia deceased on the side of the road along 264th st.

Our search and rescue operation continues, and we are asking for the publics help to reunite Tempest with her family as we believe she is still within the vicinity of the GVZoo.

Tempest was born at the zoo last year and looks very similar to her siblings. She is a small wolf with grey, brown puppy fur, and white markings on her muzzle and across her brow.

She is a shy wolf and poses no threat to public safety, we ask that you not approach her but to report the location of where she was spotted.

If you have any information as to her whereabouts, please contact GVZ, Langley RCMP or the BCCOS RAPP line

As we continue our search for Tempest, we will be welcoming guests back to the GVZoo Saturday, August 20th

We would like to thank the amazing efforts of the BCCOS, and the Langley RCMP and we would also like to thank the community for their patience, understanding and continued support.

If you have information, please contact
