Are the Wolves Reintroduced to the Rocky Mountains Natural?

There are many questions about the wolves reintroduced to to the greater Yellowstone area. Are they the same as they were before? The answer is yes. These wolves are perfectly natural. The wolves that used to inhabit that area were the Northern Rocky Mountain Wolf. That is the same type that was reintroduced, the same subspecies lives their today, they live from Alberta and British Columbia to Wyoming. The wolves that were reintroduced were from British Columbia.
    The story that many antiwolf supporters tell is this:
“The wolf that used to inhabit this area was the Gray Wolf .  What was reintroduced
 was the Canadian Gray wolf. These wolves are unnatural BLAH BLAH BLAH.
I find this amusing. There is only one species of wolf in North America, the Gray wolf, which is divided into 24 subspecies. There is no subspecies called the Canadian Gray Wolf. Many say that these three subspecies are the ones that were reintroduced, therefore “unnatural”:

Manitoba Wolf-
Can’t be the one reintroduced, since it is extinct.
British Columbian Wolf- Hmmm… Extinct.
Mackenzie Valley Wolf-Almost always white. Doesn’t sound like our wolf. How odd.
   It becomes quite clear that the wolves reintroduced are Canis lupus irremotus, the same subspecies that was here before. Scientists do their research, and they know not to reintroduce something unnatural.
Think about it.
