Exotic Animal Incident Report

Reported: Aug 14, 2007
Location: Phoenix, Arizona

Animal: Grey Wolf
Animal Disposition: recaptured

Facility Type: Accredited AZA Zoo
Facility Name: Phoenix Zoo

Category: Escape of animal
Species: Other

Summary: Two endangered Mexican gray wolves escaped their enclosure at the Phoenix Zoo for about 2 hours, after strong storm wind gusts forced open a gap in the locked metal enclosure gate. Park rangers secured the zoo’s 50 visitors in a nearby gift shop. Rangers opened the enclosure gate, allowing one wolf to re-enter on her own. They then netted and tranquilized the second wolf. Visitors and wolves were unharmed.
