During the last century, wolves were almost hunted to extinction and efforts to reintroduce wolves into their natural habitat have been controversial. Ranchers fear wolves will harm livestock and many people continue to view the wolf as a Little Red Riding Hood villain. In Portland, Maine, and in other North American cities, wolf packs sometimes enter the urban environment seeking food. These packs are often killed.
In Portland, a small pack of wolves were recently found near an abandon section of waterfront. Luckily, I had my smart phone handy to take a few pictures of these majestic creatures.
