Description: [First paragraph] On November 1, 1917, the first Mexican gray wolf (Canis lupus baileyi) of many to follow was killed by the Federal government in Arizona. The female animal was one of a pair of the diminutive subspecies of the much more widely distributed gray wolf (Canis lupus). Typical of their kind, and of the arid and less biologically productive habitat in which they evolved, the two peripatetic animals covered a territory much larger than those of northern, heavier wolves. They ranged from Sonora, Mexico, into the Canelo Hills of southern Arizona, traveling in a regular circuit of about seventy miles that crossed the international border at two places.

Keywords: Canis lupus baileyi, wolves, habitats, range, recovery, human activity
