WINDOW ROCK

The Navajo Nation Zoo has two new furry faces and their names are Felipe and Redford.

The pair of Mexican Grey Wolves came from Chicago after the Navajo Nation Zoo loss their 15-year-old wolf Rico.

Zoologist David Mikesic said for the past six years they’ve had two Mexican Grey Wolves, Esperanza and Rico, but at the end of 2013 Rico was diagnosed with two forms of cancer.
