High Country News;11/23/2009, Vol. 41 Issue 20, p24
The article offers the author's view on managing wolves in the U.S. by putting tracking devices on them. He mentions that Washington State is currently having a debate on whether they would bring the wolves back in the wild as some of the residents their portrayed wolves as man eater. He believes that the wolves that are being introduced in the wild are all properly managed as they wear radio collars and generate better genealogical records.
