Ethiopian Wolf
The Ethiopian Wolf is the Most Endangered Canid in the World.

DNA analysis suggests that the Ethiopian wolf is descended from
grey wolves that crossed into Africa from Western Europe at the
end of the last Ice Age, about 12,000 years ago. When the ice
melted, the wolves were isolated in the Afro-alpine mountains.

Currently, there around 470 Ethiopian Wolves that inhabit a
relatively small geographic region in Ethiopia.
Of the 470, only a small percentage will reproduce and successfully
raise pups to adulthood.

With genetic diversity as limited as it already is, it is imperative that
the loss of breeding adults and their young be limited in every way possible.
