There are many that believe that wolves have been given an undeserved bad name in the animal kingdom. There's a center near St. Louis that tries to help protect endangered wolves from being completely eliminated.
I've seen a lot of coyotes and wolves in my life and I didn't think it was that hard to tell them apart. However, there's a trail camera near St. Louis that picked up an animal and I'm having a hard time telling if it's a coyote or wolf and apparently I'm not alone.
