The Red Wolf is the most endangered mammal in North America, with estimates of as few as 20, or fewer, left in the wild, all in eastern North Carolina. There are some more in captivity used for breeding. Seeing one in the wild is exceptionally rare. Most of the adults are wearing radio tracking collars. Seeing two in the wild is even more rare. Seeing two adults in the same field, with one adult without a tracking collar, is a holy grail moment.
A dark Red Wolf.
Under the watchful eye of another collared adult.
And a road bear.
And a moment of Zen.
