The Vancouver Island Wolf (Canis lupus crassodon) is a subspecies of grey wolf, endemic to Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. It is very social with other wolves, and lives in packs of about five to thirty-five. It is an endangered subspecies, very shy, and is rarely seen by humans. Wolves at the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve area have been known to attack and kill unguarded domestic dogs. There are also two Vancouver Island Wolves, one white and one grey (seen from the bus window) at the Greater Vancouver Zoo.
The wolf is medium-sized, and greyish-black or white in color.
The wolf's main food sources are the Columbian black-tailed deer and the Roosevelt elk.
