The Trouble With WolvesBear Creek Council hosts online screening of documentary
by Ilona Popper
Feb. 9, 2021Once exterminated from the lower 48 states, wolves have made a triumphant return to Yellowstone National Park and the surrounding states. Hailed as ‘the greatest animal conservation success in human history,’ to many others living in the areas affected, the story is dramatically different. There is, after all, a reason wolves have been, and continue to be, the world’s most controversial predator. But the question remains: do they deserve a place on this landscape?
From hunters without game and ranchers on the brink of losing their family businesses to the biologists who personally brought the wolves back and the wildlife managers struggling to find equilibrium, The Trouble With Wolves is a rich character study revealing what's really going on in the American West. It probably isn't what agenda-driven environmentalists or rabid anti-wolf groups have told you.
