Grey wolf or Timber wolf (Canis lupus)
Unsubstantiated hatred against wolves by humans is only recently beginning to be dispelled by scientists interested in preserving this threatened species. In the early days of colonization great bounty was put on the head of a dead wolf, and Native Americans in some territories were required by the colonizers to kill at least two wolves each year. Even today wolves are attacked and persecuted as a threat to humans and livestock. (postcard)
