Technically no. I was doing research at the Anahuac NWR and San Bernard NWR in the mid-70s when the last pure wolves were trapped out and put into a breeding program. Genetic swamping with Coyotes was the proximal cause of their demise. There are undoubtedly remnant Red Wolf genes in the Coyote genepool of southeast Texas, although by now, they are many generations removed. Here is an article that details some of this, there are more extensive articles out there if you want to use Google.

Are there Red Wolves in Harris County? If yes, there may be a pair at San Jacinto State Park.
