When a December 2, 2009 storm knocked a tree over, breaking down two fences of the Bays Mountain Park wolf enclosure, six of the eight timber wolves escaped.

The wolves, which the site reassures visiters, pose no risk to the surrounding area, and four of them were enticed back with lures.

Two of the wolves remain uncaptured. The park officials believe due to tracks and other signs, that the wolves are still in the park. They¬†have already tried using food, and tranquilizers, but the attempts haven’t been successful.

Local officials have suggested it could be time to get outside help involved.
