Additional Information

The Mexican gray wolf occasionally drifts into Texas from a struggling population in Mexico.

The howl of the native gray wolf - the wolf that was here thousands of years before the first people - is gone from Texas forever.

Whether or not the wolf was revered by the Indian, they did not intend to co-exist with anything - especially wolves.

The destruction of the bison, deer, wild sheep, pronghorns and turkeys had the same effect on the wolf as it had on the Indian.  It took away the wolves' main prey animals and they either turned on the settler's livestock or they starved.  Either way it marked the end of the gray wolf. 

This image is from the Charles Beckendorf Texas Wildlife book. The original was an acrylic painting on canvas (1992) and the size is approximately 14 X 11 inches.  The total edition size of this print is 500.

This is a part of the Texas Wildlife Art Prints Collection.

Color Reproduction

Beckendorf color reproductions are developed using four color process printing on fine white paper. This advanced technique utilizes separate color plates for each of the primary colors, plus black. High-resolution digital scans and special process inks are utilized to yield beautiful, accurate reproductions.

About the Artist - Charles Beckendorf

Charles grew up in Mathis, Texas, where he had the opportunity to spend hours on large ranches. Generous land owners gave him permission to wander freely over their ranches and he observed creatures in their natural surroundings. He developed a lifelong love of nature, whether it be in the tiniest of flowers or the largest of animals. It was at this time that he became a true naturalist.
