The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) announced its intention to kill the wolf pack that has been terrorizing cattle in the Ferry County area.
It turns out that wolves, jackals and domestic dogs have different howling dialects or "vocal fingerprints." Researchers say this may help them better identify species, and therefore their conservation status.
Minnesota Department of Natural Resources researchers are making strides toward figuring out what is killing the state's moose. Preliminary reports suggest it is a combination of health issues and increased predation.
Hypercarnivores, or enormous predators, most likely shaped the ecosystem during the Pleistocene epoch. Essentially, packs of these large animals controlled populations of herbivores so to preserve the ancient landscapes and valuable vegetation.
Thirty years after Russia's Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant exploded and released massive amounts of radioactive particles into the atmosphere, driving human inhabitants to permanently abandon the area, this so-called "dead zone" has become home to multiple thriving wildlife populations.
In 1609, when Henry Hudson arrived on the island of Manhattan, black bear, wolves, deer, beavers and river otters likely all lived there. One conservation ecologist thinks that and more is useful for planners and visitors to know.
Two adult gray wolves were found dead within 50 yards of one another Wallowa County, Oregon. Authorities believe poaching was involved. Next month, Oregon's Department of Fish and Wildlife will decide whether to take the gray wolf off the state's endangered species list or not.
Characteristic of the wile canines of oral tradition, jackals, it seems, had us tricked. Researchers have found what they are calling concrete evidence that a species of golden jackal living in Africa and Asia is actual two separate species - marking the first discovery of a new canine group in over 150 years.
The United States Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) has decided to put the brakes on a recovery program for one of the most endangered species of canine in all of North America, the red wolf. And while the Service assures us that this does not spell the end for the program entirely, it has done little to quell the ire of conservation groups.
The US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) recently ruled that the North American gray wolf will remain classified as an endangered species despite its speedy recovery across the continent. Strangely enough, many conservationists looking to compromise with angry farmers and state officials are saying that this is not the good news they were hoping to hear.
Dogs been known for quite some time as "man's best friend" - a fairly accurate label when you consider the number of hardships we have shared with canines.

Dogs have long been known as man's best friend, and now new research shows that their special bond with humans may go back earlier than thought.
Chronic disease can wreak havoc on a pack of wild animals living together, but new research shows that if carnivores simply cooperate, they can lessen their impact and increase their chances of survival.
For five years now, there has been a notable decline in the number of wolf sightings in Denali National Park and Preserve. Now a new report from the National Park Service (NPS) is suggesting that wolf hunting could be to blame, as there are few limitations on when a wolf can be killed by a hunter in the Alaskan wilderness.
