DENVER- Two African wild dogs are officially calling Denver home this week. Two young sisters, Tilly and Cheza moved into the Predator Ridge exhibit on Wednesday. The sisters were born in September 2012 at Brookfield Zoo in Chicago.
Zookeepers do not plan to introduce the sisters to the older pack, though. Instead, they hope to bring in males soon to start a breeding pack. Denver Zoo has been a leader in breeding and managing African wild dogs since the species arrived in 2001. A total of 28 puppies have been born at Denver Zoo since that time.
