This is probably the only one you will ever see.
By size it is half way between a Coyote and a Timber Wolf and is native to the eastern US. It is also one of the most endangered animals in the world. I think last count was perhaps 75, all reintroduced to the wild after being declared extinct (except for breeding pairs in captivity, this may be one).
When they were released to the wild the first location was an island off the marshes near us. Having been there photographing raptors I guess these animals are tough…the bugs there are unbelievable.
This is one of a pair in captivity where we were testing new gear.
