Why are Wolves endangered?
There are many reasons why wolves are endangered, Most people used to be afraid of wolves and thought they were dangerous to humans. For a long time, people would get money for bringing in a dead wolf. This was called bounty hunting (between 1850 and 1900 more that a million wolves were killed. In 1907 the call was given for the total extinction of the species.) People also use to poison wolves, poisoning is probably the main reason there are so few wolves left today.
Myth and Superstition
The Middle Ages in Europe was a time of growing enlightenment and crushing superstition. A belief in werewolves was widespread. The Roman Church exploited this sinister image of the wolf and, during the years of the Inquisition, used the peoples' fear of werewolves to maintain secular control. When the European settlers arrived in America, they brought this dark wolf of their imaginings with them. In contrast the indigenous people of North America both admired and emulated the wolf. The Native Americans respected the wolf's hunting abilities and honored him because he provided food for the community at large-the fox, the coyote, and the raven.

Red Wolf, Canis rufus The red wolf is one of two species of wolves in North America, the other being the gray wolf, Canis lupus. As their name suggests, red wolves are known for the characteristic reddish color of their fur most apparent behind the ears and along the neck and legs, but are mostly brown and buff colored with some black along their backs. Intermediate in size to gray wolves and coyotes, the average adult red wolf weighs 45-80 pounds, stands about 26 inches at the shoulder and is about 4 feet long from the tip of the nose to the end of the tail. Red wolves are social animals that live in packs consisting of a breeding adult pair and their offspring of different years, typically five to eight animals. Red wolves prey on a variety of wild mammals such as raccoon, rabbit, white-tailed deer, nutria, and other rodents. Most active at dusk and dawn, red wolves are elusive and generally avoid humans and human activity.
By 1987, enough red wolves were bred in captivity to begin a restoration program on Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge in northeastern North Carolina. Since then, the experimental population area has expanded to include three national wildlife refuges, a Department of Defense bombing range, state-owned lands, and private property, spanning a total of 1.5 million acres.

Wolves live in family groups called packs. A pack is usually made up of a male parent, a female parent, their pups and a few other adult wolves who are the older brothers and sisters. The pack works together to hunt for food and to take care of the pups. more info... The wolf is a large member of the canine family.

Are Gray Wolves Endangered? Updated August 2005 The gray wolf in the contiguous 48 United States has long been on the federal government's list of endangered species, which includes both threatened and endangered populations. In the Eastern and Western distinct population segments (DPS), the gray wolf is considered by the federal government to be threatened, whereas it is considered fully endangered the Southwestern DPS. In Alaska the gray wolf thrives in such numbers that it is neither threatened nor endangered. Classifying the status of animals is a judgment call. In some cases, the judgment is easy. For example, the California condor population includes only a few remaining members and is clearly endangered. With other species, such as the gray wolf, the situation is far more complex.

Are Wolves Endangered?
The wolf in the contiguous 48 United States has been placed on the federal government's list of endangered species, which includes both threatened (it may become endangered) and endangered (a species, subspecies or population in danger of extinction) populations. In Minnesota, the wolf is considered by the federal government to be threatened, whereas elsewhere in the 48 states it is considered fully endangered. Classifying the status of animals is a judgment call. In some cases, the judgment is easy. For example, with California condors, of which there are fewer than a dozen, there is not a question but that they are endangered. With other species, the problem is far more complex. The wolf fits into this category. Worldwide, wolves were once distributed everywhere north of about 20 degrees N. latitude which runs through Mexico City and southern India. However, they have been exterminated over perhaps half of their former range. In many countries, the wolf has long been gone. However, there are still some 50,000 wolves in Eurasia, and about 50,000 in Canada, and about 4,000-6,000 in Alaska. Mexico has less than a dozen. In the 48 contiguous states, Minnesota supports a population of 1,550 to 1,750, and as of 1992, wolves seem to be increasing both in their numbers and distribution. There are 40-50 wolves in Wisconsin and 6-10 in mainland Michigan. Isle Royale has 12 (spring 1992). Montana supports about 30 wolves, and Idaho, perhaps a half dozen. The state of Washington currently has a few known breeding packs, which were discovered in 1990.

Western gray wolves coming off endangered list
Estimated 1,500 animals now roam Idaho, Montana, Wyoming
  • ad info Kent Kauden MDFWP via AP file The Associated Press updated 2/27/2008 6:28:22 PM ET Gray wolves in the Northern Rockies will be removed from the endangered species list, following a 13-year restoration effort that helped the animal's population soar, federal officials said Thursday. An estimated 1,500 wolves now roam Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. That represents a dramatic turnaround for a predator that was largely exterminated in the U.S. outside of Alaska in the early 20th century. "Gray wolves in the Northern Rocky Mountains are thriving and no longer require the protection of the Endangered Species Act," said Interior Deputy Secretary Lynn Scarlett. "The wolf's recovery in the Northern Rocky Mountains is a conservation success story." The restoration effort, however, has been unpopular with ranchers and many others in the three states since it began in the mid-1990s, and today some state leaders want the population thinned significantly.

The gray wolf or grey wolf Canis lupus ), often known simply as the wolf , is the largest wild member of the Canidae family. Though once abundant over much of Eurasia and North America , the gray wolf inhabits a reduced portion of its former range due to widespread destruction of its territory, human encroachment, and the resulting human-wolf encounters that sparked broad extirpation . Even so, the gray wolf is regarded as being of least concern for extinction by the International Union for Conservation of Nature , when the entire gray wolf population is considered as a whole. Today, wolves are protected in some areas, hunted for sport in others, or may be subject to extermination as perceived threats to livestock and pets.
