Cascade mountain wolf

The Cascade mountain wolf (Canis lupus fuscus) was a subspecies of the gray wolf, Canis lupus, and was normally found in British Columbia, Oregon, and Washington.[2] It was originally identified as a separate species from other wolves in the area by Edward Goldman in 1945,[3] though the authority for the species was made much earlier by Richardson in 1839.[4] The species itself became extinct in 1940.[2]


It was described as a cinnamon coloured wolf measuring 165 cm and weighing 36–49 kg.[5]
