Oregon Zoo: Gray Wolf
A man munching on a bag of popcorn walked up to the exhibit. The female immediately became very interested and came over to the fence. If she were a dog, I'd have said she was flirting or begging.
Edited to add: I found some more information: http://www.oregonzoo.org/Newsroom/2008releases/2008Dec.htm#wolves
The wolf's name is Yazhi. She and the second wolf, Cheyenne (who was sleeping in the shade while I was there, so I didn't get any photos) just arrived at the Oregon Zoo last December from Minnesota. Yazhi is only a year and a few months old, which might explain her slightly gangly appearance.
I also came across these taken a few months ago at the zoo. Check out the ones of Yazhi playing! She is definitely a puppy.
