Red wolves in TX after declared extinct? (Photo)

During my early research into red wolves, my aunt gave me this clipping from the Orange Leader newspaper dating back to 1986. It shows a man with what looks very much like a red wolf he shot in Orange County in 1986.

The official word was that all of the animals left were “coyotes” or at best wolf/coyote hybrids but at the very least it shows the red wolf genetic was strong in the area after the extinction declaration.

    There were enough red wolves around Katy back in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s that farmers were still hanging dead wolves at Wolf Corner. I recall seeing quite a few there as a child.
