Dundee’s beloved wolves avoided injury when part of a tree collapsed during stormy conditions.
The Camperdown wolf pack evaded harm despite part of a large tree plummeting on to their cage during Sunday night’s blustery weather.
A spokesman for Leisure & Culture Dundee confirmed: “Due to high winds on Sunday evening a tree branch fell on to the top of the fence at the wolves enclosure. Small repairs have now been carried out.
“The wolves and cubs were unperturbed by events and remained in the enclosure while repairs took place.”
Visitors saw Camperdown’s new wolf cubs for the first time in June after they were unexpectedly born ahead of schedule.
The cubs’ parents, Aurora and Loki, only arrived at the centre themselves back in March.
Hailed as a new generation of grey wolves for the city, the cubs are now regularly venturing out from their den and are often seen playing in the enclosure with their parents.
Their mother, Aurora, was born at the Highland Wildlife Park in 2013 and the male, Loki, born in 2012 in the Netherlands.
The wolves are part of the European breeding programme, which aims to boost the population of the endangered species.
Keepers have so far been delighted with the early success of the breeding programme, having expected the first cubs to be born next year at the earliest.
Camperdown renewed its relationship with European wolves back in March.
The Dundee attraction has been synonymous with the animals for a number of years, with the last pair, Queenie and Sly, reaching the ripe old age of 14.
