Officially, there are as few as 14 red wolves in the wild, all of which live on a refuge in North Carolina.
Brzeski and vonHoldt published their study about the Galveston animals last year.
Some of them, she says, definitely looked more like red wolves, with their tawny fur and wide, wolflike faces.
A report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine last year concluded that red wolves are in fact a distinct and endangered species.
That same organization has now issued a call for research proposals on whether Gulf Coast canids once considered to be coyotes are actually red wolves.
