The Kenai Peninsula Wolf

HABITAT
They inhabited the Kenai Peninsula and adjacent areas in Alaska.

CHARACTERISTICS
The Kenai Peninsula wolf measured from 5 to 7 feet in length (nose to end of tail), 35 to 44 inches shoulder height, and weighed 150 to 200 pounds.

DIET
It fed largely on moose which is how its scientific name Canis lupus alces was derived. It would also feed on other large ungulates.

EXTINCTION
Wolves were plentiful on the Kenai Peninsula in the late 1890's. However, the gold rush brought prospectors to the area, and by 1915 wolves were almost completely exterminated by means of predator control programs using poison, along with heavy hunting and trapping. It became extinct by 1925.
