Artist's Description

Taken at Big Run Wolf Ranch.

The website says this is a “British Columbian timber wolf” which isn’t really a commonly accepted name for anything. He looks a bit Mackenzie Valley-ish, (Canis lupus occidentalis ) but “timber wolf” often suggests it’s an Eastern wolf ( Canis lycaon or Canis lupus lycaon). Then again, British Columbia is not within the Eastern wolf’s range and none of the ranch’s “British Columbian timber wolves” look like Eastern wolves.

So this is why trinomial nomenclature is dandy; it’s universal. No matter what you call that plains bison, it’s still Bison bison bison, and you’d better be ready to write a scientific paper if you want that changed.
