The Cascade Mountain Wolf
At one time, it could be found along the Cascades, from Southwestern Canada down to Northern California.
The Cascade Mountain Wolf was similar in size to both the Northern Rocky Mountains Wolf and the Southern Rocky Mountains Wolf. It was of medium size, averaging 3 feet tall, 4 to 5 feet in length, and 80 to 90 pounds. The "fuscus" in the wolf's latin name refers to its greyish-brown coat which occasionally would have a touch of red and/or sprinkles of black.
Because of government sponsered bounties and the hostility of settlers toward the Cascade Mountain Wolf, it eventually became extinct by 1940.
