The Land Between the Lakes in Golden Pond, Kentucky is adding a new member to their wildlife family.

A female red wolf was born back in May to the Woodlands Nature Station's captive wolves. The pup is just now emerging from her den.

She will remain with her parents for at least 18 months and then be transferred to a zoo or nature center to start her own pack.

Red wolves once dominated southern forests prior to European settlement. They have since become endangered.
