Wow. Fascinating. No animal is an island. And just since 1995? Did I hear that right? Since their reintroduction in '95?

Yeah Canadian wolves, and now they're thinking about culling them again.

If anyone is interested in this topic I would suggest checking out William ripples work on wolves and trophic casacades. Where the wildthings were is also a really good book that touched on the topic. So is The Wolves Tooth.
