The red wolf (Canis rufus) is one of the world’s most endangered wild canids. Once common throughout the southeastern United States, red wolf populations were decimated by the 1960s due to intensive predator control programs and loss of habitat. In 1980, USFWS declared red wolves extinct in the wild. A few survived only in captivity, their wildness caged.

One of the world's most famous wolf packs may have howled its last after years of being targeted by hunters. The East Fork wolf pack in Alaska's Denali National Park was down to a female and her two pups a few months ago, but there has been no sign of them recently and their den appears empty, biologists say. 

 

The female's mate was seen dead at a hunting camp in May and Park Service wildlife biologist Bridget Borg tells Alaska Public Media that three out of four radio-collared wolves in the much-studied pack have been killed by hunters in the last year. The advocacy group Alaskans for Wildlife says wolf numbers in the area are falling because of hunting and trapping by a "handful of people."
