British Columbia is home to an estimated 8,000 wolves, with some of the highest populations occurring on the northern coast. Wolf hunting remains legal, with a three-per-hunter limit. This GRAY WOLF has survived to old age. It lives, along with several wolf packs, on Pooley Island, home to a remarkably varied wildlife population that also includes grizzlies and black bears, as well as coho, pink, and chum salmon.
