Description

The only wild population of endangered red wolves is unsustainable and could be wiped out within a decade after dwindling to a few dozen, government officials said in a report Tuesday.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service review of the species' status estimates that only about 40 wolves remain in the wild in eastern North Carolina, down from a peak of about 120 a decade ago.

"The population cannot recover from their losses and overcome mortality resulting in a steadily declining population," the review states, predicting these wild wolves could vanish in as little as a decade.
