Wolves was the world's most widely distributed mammal but has become extinct in much of Western Europe, in Mexico and
much of the USA. Wolves occur primarily but not exclusively in wilderness and remote areas. Their original worldwide range
has been reduced by about one-third by deliberate persecution due to depredation on livestock and fear of attacks on humans.
Although the species still faces some threats, it is relatively widespread with a stable population trend and has therefore been
assessed as Least Concern by IUCN since 2004.

Gray wolves are social predators that live in nuclear families consisting of a mated pair, their offspring and, occasionally, adopted immature wolves. They primarily feed on ungulates, which they hunt by wearing them down in short chases. Gray wolves are typically apex predators throughout their range, with only humans and tigers posing significant threats to them.

There are 39 species of the grey wolf. You may look them up here:
