Colorado wolf picks Super Bowl winner

The Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center did not say if Chakra had eaten before selecting the birds to win the big game over the Chiefs.

DIVIDE, Colo. — A wolf in Colorado is siding with another member of the animal kingdom to win the Super Bowl this weekend, although there's some question about her motivation.

The Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center released a video Wednesday of Chakra picking the Philadelphia Eagles over the Kansas City Chiefs.

However, the center did not say whether she had eaten before making her selection, potentially skewing her toward the team whose logo looks like a tasty meal.

The Eagles will take on the Chiefs on Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Kickoff is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. MST.

The Eagles are looking to win their first Super Bowl since 2018, when Nick Foles led them to victory over the New England Patriots.

The Chiefs, who are appearing in their third Super Bowl in four years, are looking to perform more like they did in their 2020 victory over the San Francisco 49ers than the walloping they suffered against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2021.

The Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center is located in Divide. The sanctuary provides a home to Mexican grey wolves and swift foxes.
