Red Wolves Need to be Preserved

After being reintroduced by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 1987, by 2006 the red wolf population had grown to 120 animals. Now, only 10 years later, the red wolf packs have been mercilessly shredded by bullets and traps, and only 45 to 60 wolves are thought to remain alive outside of zoos. Photo: Wildlands Network
