The Grey Wolf


The gray wolf or grey wolf (Canis lupus), often known simply as the wolf, is the largest wild member of the Canidae family. Though once abundant over much of Eurasia and North America, the gray wolf inhabits a reduced portion of its former range due to widespread destruction of its territory, human encroachment, and the resulting human-wolf encounters that sparked broad extirpation.

I have good news. The gray wolf which once was "the most widely distributed mammal" now occupies 2/3 of it's original range and is considered by listing organisations as a "species of least concern".
