New grey wolf populations found in Canada

6 posts in this topic

Two distinct populations of grey wolves have been found living side-by-side in British Columbia, Canada.

The research built on the knowledge of indigenous people who had distinguished between the mainland "timber wolf" and island "coastal wolf".

Scientists compared DNA from wolf faeces to determine if the two groups were different.

It's wonderful that we're seeing wolves come back along the coast and finding two types.

Seafood eating wolves? That's unusual. Be interesting to see how they get their food.
