KINGSPORT — One of Bays Mountain Park’s oldest wolves has died.

“Kiva passed away late last night or early this morning,”  park operations manager Rob Cole said  Tuesday. “He died due to natural causes and we’ve ordered a necropsy on him so we have a solid ... cause of death.”

Kiva, a male grey wolf, was one of the six wolves at Bays Mountain Park, coming to the park about a decade ago.
