    Canis lupus lupus

    Eurasian Wolf

    Although it is listed as a native species to Rhode Island, the Gray Wolf has not been seen in the state for many years. It has been hunted to near extinction in many areas across the United States. In recent years, packs of wolves have been re-introduced into many of the western National Parks.
