In defense of wolves
Longtime visitors know I’ve written a lot about wolves in the western U.S., their reintroduction, the removal of their endangered status, and their slaughter by western hunters and ranchers.
And some of you may recall that back in 2010 I wrote about how their return to Yellowstone meant an increase in wetlands in the park. The return of the wolves actually changed the physical characteristics of the park, to the benefit of all.
Now comes this beautiful video telling the same story — and so much better than I. (My only quibble is the narrator calling the elk “deer.”) Thanks to M.R. Stringer for finding it.
