APPEARANCEEdit

The Hokkaidō wolf was larger than the Honshū wolf, more closely approaching the size of a regular gray wolf.The wolf was deemed a threat to ranching (which the Meiji government promoted at the time) and targeted via a bounty system and a direct chemical extermination campaign. Hokkaido experienced significant development during this period and the Hokkaidō wolf also suffered from resulting environmental disruption.
