British Columbia wolf
The British Columbia wolf (Canis lupus columbianus) is a possible subspecies of gray wolf which occurs throughout much of British Columbia, west of the Rocky and Stikine Mountains. It was first classed as a distinct subspecies in 1941 by Edward Goldman, who described it as being a large subspecies, with a skull closely resembling that of C. l. pambasileus, and whose fur is generally of a cinnamon-buff color.
