Its coat ranges from black to white or a mix of both. The wolf has a height of 85 cm Individual weights can vary from 32 kilograms 71 lb to 60 kilograms lb. The lifespan ranges from 4 to 10 years, the oldest being 12 years. Average pack size is 7 to 9 wolves, but can vary; like other wolves, the pack consists of a mated pair and their offspring. The pair is usually the only ones that breed. A wolf that has left its pack may travel up to km The minimum breeding age is 1 year, and the average litter size is 4—6 pups. While exact data is not available, it is suspected that various types of diseases, such as rabies and distemper , affect this subspecies, sometimes to the point that the stability of the subspecies is changed in parts of its region. The population in Canadian Yukon is estimated to be 5,, which ranges in all of Yukon except for Kluane National Park. The population density depends on prey, with the densest population being in Teslin, Yukon , Canada where there are 9 wolves per 1, square kilometers The diet of this wolf varies by region — moose is the main prey in southern Yukon, followed by boreal woodland caribou and Dall sheep. Barren-ground caribou is main prey in the North Slope. When hunting moose, wolves mainly kill calves and old moose when fleeing. Moose are more likely to stand their ground than caribou , which tend to flee, decreasing their survival rate. Wolves usually kill a caribou every 3 days during winter and eat for a day. Dall sheep are common prey in Kluane Game Sanctuary and National Park when moose and caribou are not available. In pre-colonial Canada , the local Aboriginal population hunted this wolf for its fur. This continued in the s, with colonists selling wolf furs to Aboriginal tribes in the area, who used them to line their clothing. The first true mapping of the wolf population in the Yukon began in the s and, subsequently, a program of wolf-poisoning began. This came about because of the public stigma regarding wolves during the time. A plan known as the Yukon Wolf Conservation and Management Plan was created in the s by the Yukon government in order to determine a method to control the population of wolves in Yukon. The studies that would be conducted under it were composed of two points. The first was that a reduction in the wolf population would only occur in one specified testing area at a time, of which no two could be occurring simultaneously in Yukon. The second point was that no hunting whatsoever would be allowed within the testing area, in order to have a strict control and understanding of the results of any study. The studies would also be conducted in only 7 of the 23 ecoregions in Yukon. The aftereffects of the plan in the s involved continued study and the creation of "rigid guidelines for ensuring long-term wolf conservation" and limited the amount of wolf control enacted by decreasing the scope and length of any future studies. The planning group also set forth methods of increasing public awareness of the importance of wolves and making more strict wolf hunting laws. The plan was eventually, however, opposed by environmental groups who did not wish for wolf control in any form. The first control program was started because of observations and complaints by the people of Ross River that the Filayson herd of caribou has been declining in size. In response, the government, from the beginning of the program to , reduced the number of wolf packs in the area from 25 to 7, which involved reducing the number of individual members from to In order to test if a concurrent effort would have a greater effect, hunting any caribou in the herd was also limited and controlled by a strict permit system. The result was that the number of caribou more than doubled and the number of wolves returned to their previous count before the control period. However, since the end of the program, the number of caribou has once again begun to steadily decline, though the health of the herd has remained stable regardless. While the government has wished to continue efforts at wolf control in the area, an agreement could not be made with the First Nation peoples of Ross River, so the effort was eventually abandoned. This was accomplished by aerial wolf hunting and through the use of snares  and traps. Numerous wolves were also neutered in the years between and After recovering the bodies of slain wolves, the pelts were removed and sold. The program was a test on whether decreased wolf population would cause the population of caribou , moose , and Dall sheep to increase. The resulting evidence showed that, while the Yukon wolf greatly affected and controlled the population of moose, the survival rate of adult caribou was not affected by the decrease in the number of wolves in the area, nor was the Dall sheep population affected at all. Thus, the study concluded that the Yukon wolf, along with hunting by humans, was one of the greatest controlling factors for the moose population and for the caribou population as a whole. The study also concluded that, in future testing areas, lethal methods of reducing wolf populations would be minimized, as it was clearly found during the study that sterilization was far more effective in controlling the population and it also did not affect wolf behavior. In , during the study, a big game outfitter was convicted in court of attempting to convince guides in the area to place poison on the ground. Some poisoned Yukon wolves and birds were found in the Aishihik testing area and 4 of the packs in the area lowered from 38 individual members to 8 members. The third study and control program under the Yukon Wolf Plan began under the insistence of the White River and the Kluane First Nation in regards to the Chisana caribou herd that roamed around the Saint Elias Mountains in the area. They had observed that caribou numbers has dropped from over in the early s to around by the s.
