CongratulationsJaybird! Your spotting is featured in today's Project Noah Fun Fact: "The soulful mournful howl of the wolf has been used in many horror movies and has contributed to the wolf's scary and undeserved persona among most people. People have little to fear from wolves as attacks on humans are extremely rare, but humans have worked to annihilate the wolf. The gray wolf (Canis lupis) is widespread around the world and has 40 subspecies currently described, including the dingo, Canis lupus dingo, and the domestic dog".
