Although wolves are native to the Adirondack Mountain Range in New York, they went extinct in the region for a long period of time. In the 1800s, wolves were abundant within the Blue Line, but deforestation and unregulated hunting wiped the species out.

In 1890 it was believed that the last wolf in the Adirondacks was shot just before 1900. However in the early 2000s, wolves began to appear again. Scientists determined that a wolf which was shot in 2001 was indeed a wild wolf (as opposed to a wolf living in captivity which escaped). 

Other sightings have begun to increase since then. many theorize that the wolves came from the upper Great Lakes or Ontario's Algonquin Park. Scientists believe if that is the case, it is likely that others will follow in their footsteps, and the species could begin naturally increasing its numbers in the region.

It is unlikely that they will venture as far down as New York City; however, in this painting Krizzart depicts a grey wolf howling at the moon with the New York skyline in the background.
