Hudson Bay Wolf

 


The Hudson Bay Wolf is a subspecies of Gray Wolf. It was classified in 1944 by Edward Goldman. This species may or may not be genetically related to the wolves found in Canada, west of Hudson Bay from Northern Manitoba and the Northwest Territries. If they are not genetically related than the Hudson Bay Wolves are probably extinct. Hudson Bay Wolves weight between 80 and 140 pounds. From nose to tail tip they between 4 and 5 feet. They are omnivores preying on caribou, moose, and bison when available. Light grey and yellowish to creamy white is their usual coloration. Their average lifespan is around 10 years.
