A breeding pair named Graham and Ocean Blue were released Monday into new, elegant digs at the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, to be followed the next day by three more wolves – 3-year-old sisters Nami, Tala and Mika.

The animals’ new $1.1 million exhibit, called Red Wolf Woods, will open to the public Saturday, and the zoo plans a weekend Wolf Fest through Monday.
