WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (WTVR) - If you plan on heading to Busch Gardens anytime soon, you may get the chance to meet the park's newest addition.

An orphaned gray wolf pup found wandering along the side of the road in Central Idaho, now has a home at Busch Gardens.

Idaho State officials transported the 8-week-old male earlier this week.

Nicknamed "Boise," the park's new pup is busy getting acclimated to his new pack mates.

When he's ready, Boise and his mates will help teach the public about the important role wolves play in the wild.
