Canid North of Grand Canyon Confirmed to be a Rocky Mountain Gray Wolf

Genetic tests of scat (feces) collected from a free-roaming canid north of Grand Canyon National Park on the North Kaibab National Forest have confirmed that the animal, first detected in early October, is a female Rocky Mountain gray wolf.  The confirmation clarifies that this gray wolf is fully protected under the Endangered Species Act.
