†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Endangered species: Grey Wolf (Canis Lupus)
††††††††† The Grey Wolf is one of the many endangered species of the world. They usually have gray fur with yellow eyes, although fur and eye color may vary.
They usually eat large hoofed animals, carrion, and some plants.
Their habitat is extremely variable; they may live in forests and on the tundra.
They usually travel in packs with the leader being the strongest, but when they have pups, they stay in their den until the pups are about seven weeks old, then they travel with their parents.
The mating season is January though April. The females donít only mate with one male; they mate with many males. They usually live eight to sixteen years in the wild and over twenty years in captivity
††††††††† There are many reasons Grey wolves became endangered.† One of them is for economic reasons, such as selling body parts and fur of the Grey wolves. Another reason is for sport, hunting, for example. There are also population reasons. Grey wolves were relocated because people did not feel comfortable with wolves living near their homes. There fore people demolish the places that wolves live, causing them to die.
††††††† There are a few things that are happening now to help the Grey Wolf, such as laws, zoos, and wild life preserves. Some other things that can be done are to stop hunting Grey Wolf, stop selling Grey Wolf furs and other things that are made from them, and increasing the number of laws to protect them.
Some things we can all do to help are to become an activist, donít buy any products made from the Grey Wolf, and stop using Grey Wolf products that you may already own.
