Coyote Influx Threatens Red Wolf Survival

Record #:
Twenty years ago, there were 14 red wolves left in the nation. Through wildlife management, this endangered animal was brought back. In 1987, red wolves were successfully released into the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge in eastern North Carolina. Now, with the spread of coyotes across the state, interbreeding, which almost destroyed the red wolf's genetic purity once before, threatens it again.
