Nikkolah II was born in the spring of 2009 at Bear Country, a wildlife safari park in South Dakota. He came to Mission: Wolf with his three Canadian gray wolf litter mates and four arctic wolf pups who had been raised in the same enclosure. Due to the failing economy, the park had been unable to sell the two litters and no longer had room to house them. At nearly four months of age, a volunteer drove many miles to transport the pups and they arrived at Mission: Wolf in a horse trailer.

One of our lead Ambassadors, Magpie, had just come out of a false pregnancy and so she and her partner Abe eagerly took the pups in. Just as they all began to settle into life at the refuge, tragedy struck and the pups became ill with parvovirus. Nikkolah II and his adoptive siblings Pharaoh and Cutie Pie were unable to fight off the virus and sadly passed away at Mission: Wolf.
