Abstract: 

Wolf populations are increasing in the lower 48 states. This increase is the result of positive public attitude, legal protection, government restoration programs, and wolves’ high capacity to increase in number and expand their range. Coyote populations are increasing, as well, due to their high capacity to increase in number and their ability to live close to human habitation. As wolves and coyotes expand their range and individual animals travel to new areas, more people may have a need to distinguish between the two species. If you find yourself asking, “Was that a wolf?” this guide to identifying wolves and coyotes will be beneficial.
