Red Wolf

Red Wolves at the Binghamton Zoo

Did you know? Red wolves are a critically endangered species!

"Red Wolves exist only in a reintroduced population in eastern North Carolina, USA. The species was Extinct in the Wild by 1980, but was reintroduced by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) in 1987 into eastern North Carolina. The total population within the reintroduction area is <150 (of which no more than 50 are mature individuals). Abundance outside the reintroduction area is unknown. Hybridization with Coyotes or Red Wolf x Coyote hybrids is the primary threat to the species' persistence in the wild." (iucnredlist.org)

Beautiful! I swore I saw a wolf in Binghamton. By the time I got the settings camera settings right it was pretty far away. I posted it here dated 7/25/13. Many people told me they thought it was a coyote, but it was huge and solid in the chest.
