The timber wolf is, without question, the most maligned animal in North America. Years ago, before they were added to the Endangered Species list, they were hunted almost to extinction. The Boundary Waters is home to approximately 1,500 wolves, who live and hunt in packs. Contrary to myth and popular belief, the wolf poses no threat to humans. In fact, no wild, healthy wolf has ever attacked a human in the U.S.!
