Gray wolf - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

39 ssp., see Subspecies of Canis lupus

The gray wolf or grey wolf (Canis lupus) is a species of canid native to the wilderness and remote areas of North America, Eurasia, and North Africa. It is the largest member of its family, with males averaging 43–45 kg (95–99 lb), and females 36–38.5 kg (79–85 lb).[3] It is similar in general appearance and proportions to a German shepherd,[4] or sled dog, but has a larger head, narrower chest, longer legs, straighter tail and bigger paws.[5] Its winter fur is long and bushy, and predominantly a mottled gray in colour, although nearly pure white, red, or brown to black also occur.[4]

Within the genus Canis, the gray wolf represents a more specialised and progressive form than its smaller cousins (the coyote and golden jackal), as demonstrated by its morphological adaptations to hunting large prey, its more gregarious nature[6] and its highly advanced expressive behavior.[7][8] It is a social animal, travelling in nuclear families consisting of a mated pair, accompanied by the pair's adult offspring.[9] The gray wolf is typically an apex predator throughout its range, with only humans and tigers[10][11][12][13] posing a serious threat to it. It feeds primarily on large ungulates, though it also eats smaller animals, livestock, carrion, and garbage.[14]

Not many people are neutral on Wisconsin's wolf hunt. They represent nature free and wild to you. Or they are a threat to be feared by you.

This is sort of an object lesson in why "hey, I don't recognize that thing, better shoot it" is not the most adaptive outlook on life.
