The Japanese Wolf or Honshū wolf is sadly now extinct, but Wolves still live in many countries. Whilst many people may fear them, their reintroduction into Yellowstone National park led to increases in Biodiversity as they "encouraged" the Wildebeast to keep moving, causing less damage to any one area, quickly trees regrew, badger populations back and fish populations bloomed.
Wolves can run 30 miles in a day searching for food and will run for miles at speed chasing down prey until it is exhausted.
