Visitors to the Science Museum of Minnesota's Mississippi River Gallery haven't had the usual rite of spring of seeing peregrine falcon chicks on gallery's television monitor. Bummer, right? But here's the good news. In a few months they'll be able to see two wolf pups. With no nesting falcons available on television cameras this spring, the gallery's television monitor has been tuned into the International Wolf Center in Ely. The center has just received two wolf pups. Those pups will go on public display when they grow to about 35 pounds, which should be in August. The pups are growing about a half pound a day.
