M731 Oz

M731 Oz Mexican Gray Wolf Southwest Wildlife Scottsdale Arizona

Mexican gray wolf M731, Oz, was born in 2002 and lived his entire life at the pre-release facilities in New Mexico before losing his sight and retiring to Southwest Wildlife’s sanctuary. 

While Oz isn’t crazy about people, he’s quite popular with female wolves.  He’s outlived a couple of the females he’s been paired with. 

Currently he lives with F858, Magdalena, the former wild Rim Pack alpha female. 

They have made a connection and, occasionally, if they don’t hear you coming, can be seen curled together sleeping.
