Wolf shot on Newfoundland and New Brunswick canid confirmed as a wolf

Wolf probably crossed sea ice from Labrador
May 2012. DNA tests have confirmed that a hunter shot a wolf of Newfoundland’s Bonavista Peninsula in March. The hunter was shooting coyotes but realised, after shooting the animal, that it was too large to be a coyote.

DNA tests have also shown that another wolf was shot in April in New Brunswick, the first seen there for 150 years. Again the hunter was shooting coyotes and only realised after the event that the animal was very large for a coyote.
