Estimates are that only about 500 Algonquin Wolves remain…

…in and around Algonquin Park in Ontario, Canada.

The Algonquin Wolf, sometimes call a brush wolf, is an offshoot of a mix of coyote and wolf stock, with maybe some domestic dog thrown in. It is somewhat smaller than the grey wolf but much larger than the coyote.

Its range is the eastern Ottawa Valley and hills  south and north of the Ottawa River into Quebec province. It is hunted outside the 4 protected park boundaries in the area.

Their night time howling is one of the pleasant feature treats for residents and visitors to the area where there is this population.

Lets press our legislators to offer more protection to this rare sub=species…
