The red wolf from North America has a range extending from Florida to Texas. The most endangered of the wolf species. The species was declared extinct in the wild in 1980 due to habitat loss and aggressive hunting practices as they were trapped and shot because the wolf was seen as a direct threat to livestock. The last few remaining wolves were taken into captive breeding programs to be re-introduced back into the wild.
