The Canis Lupus Pambasileus is also known as the Alaska inland wolf and is a sub-species of the gray wolf. This canine animal is one of the largest wolves in North America.

The Yukong wolf is a kind of wolf that wandered throughout the inland area of Alaska, except for the moss-governments on the Arctic Coast. It is also discovered in the Yukong area. The Yukong area is the Federal territory of Canada, located in the northwest of the country, bordering Alaska.

Yukong Wolf Food

Yukong Wolf Population

Like other similars, the Yugong Wolf is also an endangered species. Although the number of gray wolves has increased slightly in recent years, the gray wolf of this sub-breed is still very fragile.

Not all kinds of wolves are not so lucky. Due to human activities and dense hunting, several sub-species were considered extinct.
