I have no idea where I read this, it was several years ago and I can't prove a darn thing, but this article said that ADK wolves *MAY* have the Red Wolf that now resides in some of our southern states.

If nothing else, it's an interesting idea.
I believe the Eastern Wolf and Red Wolf are genetically the same thing. They follow Bergmanns Rule in that animals in colder parts of their range are larger than those in warmer and southerly limits of their rage. The Eastern Wolves in Algonquin are darker in colour and have more colour variation too.
