Reintroduction of Red Wolves into North Carolina

Red Wolves reintroduced in North CarolinaRed Wolves were reintroduced to North Carolina several years ago.  Since their reintroduction they have faced many troubles one of the biggest is hunters mistaking them for coyotes (which are always in season) and shooting them. 

Recently the North Carolina courts put a 6 month moratorium on coyote hunting in the five counties the red wolves call home.  Hopefully this will give the red wolf the boost it needs for the population to flourish.
