Artist's Description

Timber wolves, also called gray wolves, are the largest wild members of the dog family.

Few people have ever heard the sound of a howling timber wolf. A small number, but growing population, of wolves now live in Wisconsin, one of just nine states in the country where timber wolves exist in the wild.

Before Europeans settled North America; gray wolves inhabited areas from the southern swamps to the northern tundra, from coast to coast. They existed wherever there was an adequate food supply. However, people overharvested wolf prey species (e.g., elk, bison and deer), transformed wolf habitat into farms and towns and persistently killed wolves. As the continent was settled, wolves declined in numbers and became more restricted in range. Today, the majority of wolves in North America live in remote regions of Canada and Alaska. In the lower 48 states, wolves exist in small numbers and in only a few tracts of minimally disturbed northern forest in Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, Montana, Idaho, and Washington.
