On February 25, 2023, we said farewell to sweet wolf. Diego was a Mexican gray wolf that resided at the Wolf Conservation Center.
This beautiful wolf was born in 2007 on Earth Day and came to the WCC in 2015. At the center, he met his love--Rosa. The two quickly fell in love--which resulted in a little female wolf pup being brought into this world in the Spring of 2016.
Trumpet was the name of the little spitfire Rosa gave birth to. In 2017, as part of the Species Survival Plan, Diego was was partnered with another female Mexican gray wolf by the name of Magdalena. The two wolves' love blossomed over the time they were together.
But Diego's true love was another female wolf named Valentia. These two newlyweds were the perfect couple. The duo began to convey their feelings for eachother by sleeping close together and giving loving nuzzles.
Trumpet, who was Diego and Rosa's daughter Trumpet gave birth to a full litter of pups--which included two wolf pups whom experienced the wild as part of the SSP.
Even though Diego has passed on, we can find happiness in the fact that he lived for over 15 years in contentment and love. He also left behind a legacy in his little spitfire--Trumpet; who contributed in the survival of her species. Diego left behind a legacy, no doubt.
We will miss you, Diego.
