It’s estimated that there are less than 100 red wolves in existence, and they roam a five county area in northeastern North Carolina.  Now, these small pockets are endangered further.  We explore the two most recent red wolf deaths in Washington County and the reward being offered for any information leading to an arrest.

It’s estimated that there are less than 100 red wolves in existence, and they roam a five county area in northeastern North Carolina.  Now, these small pockets are endangered further.  This week on the Down East Journal, we explore the two most recent red wolf deaths in Washington County and the reward being offered for any information leading to an arrest. The Down East Journal airs Friday at noon on all of the PRE stations.  And Saturday at noon on News and Ideas.

The band “Coyote” has multiple concerts set for this weekend in our area: Friday night at the Trent River Coffee Company, Saturday night at Clawson's Restaurant, and Sunday at Swanfest.  For more information, visit: http://events.publicbroadcasting.net/pre/events.eventsmain

We examine a controversial North Carolina rule that some believe has contributed to the deaths of the rare and endangered Red Wolf.
