(Canid Conservation). - Free Online Library

personally, i'd vote for a deliberate re-intro of the Laurentides-type,
as QUOTE,
"the wolves in the Laurentides area of Quebec might provide a better source popn for the northeastern USA.
The close proximity of the two regions might allow some genetic exchange. Preliminary testing indicates that
genetically, the Laurentides animals may be a mix of gray and eastern wolf ... further supported by their large
size of up to 100 pounds. The Laurentides wolves prey primarily on moose (Alces alces), a plentiful prey item
in Maine.
Most importantly perhaps, these animals may be less likely to hybridize with eastern coyotes than the
Algonquin-type wolf..."
