Royal Oak — Visitors named “Wolf” or featuring variations of the word can roam free at the Detroit Zoo the day a new wolf sanctuary opens.

Officials at the zoo in Royal Oak say admission is free June 8 to anyone with valid photo identification that shows a first, middle or last name containing “wolf” in some form. That includes “Wulff,” ‘’Wulfmeier” and “Wolfe.”

Parking, rides, attractions and food and are not included with the free admission.

The Cotton Family Wolf Wilderness opens June 8. A pair of gray wolves also will be introduced to the 2-acre habitat that features grassy hills, meadows, trees and a flowing stream.

Detroit Zoological Society Executive Director Ron Kagan says wolves are being welcomed back to the zoo “for the first time in 25 years.”
