Eastern timber wolves have been found in the southern U.S. in a large group of animals, according to a new study.
The study shows that the eastern timberwolf (Antilocapra latifolia) is a widespread species and has been known to inhabit more than 2,000 square miles of the U.M. campus.
The findings are published online in the Journal of Mammalogy.
“We had no idea that there was an eastern timberdog in the United States,” said lead author of the study, Paul Ting, a wildlife ecologist at the University of Utah.
The researchers were surprised to find that there are so many eastern timberdogs in the northern U.A. The finding comes as the UMass System hosts a research team conducting a study of the species.
Ting said that when the team looked for eastern timber dogs in a remote area in southern Idaho, they saw the same species as those in the nearby forests.
“So we think that this is just a natural occurrence,” Ting told Vice News.
“That is what I call a common occurrence.”
The researchers also found that the species has been documented in northern and central Wyoming, and in Alaska and the Yukon.
The new species is a subspecies of the eastern wood wolf (A.
latifoli), which is also found in North America.
The eastern wood dog is also considered an invasive species in many parts of the world.
The UMass researchers say that the discovery of eastern timberwolves is exciting, as it will help determine the best management of the region.
“Our hope is that by identifying the species, we will be able to more effectively manage it in the future,” Tings said.
