Imag­ine that

The New Zealand Herald - - World Briefing -

Prince­ton re­searchers say that a pack of wild dogs near the beaches of the Texas Gulf Coast carry a sub­stan­tial amount of red wolf genes, a sur­pris­ing dis­cov­ery be­cause the an­i­mal was de­clared ex­tinct in the wild nearly 40 years ago. The find­ing has led wildlife bi­ol­o­gists and oth­ers to de­velop a new un­der­stand­ing that the red wolf DNA is re­mark­ably re­silient. About 40 red wolves re­main in the wild. An ad­di­tional 200 live in zoos and wildlife fa­cil­i­ties.
