ABSTRACT
The article discusses the issue regarding the first-ever wolf season in Montana as many environmental groups feared that the hunting would kill off the alpha males and females that are the main breeders and would destroy the slowly building matrix of genetic diversity that is critical to the long term health of the returning populations. Environmentalists mention the positive effects of wolves in the ecosystem such as scattering elk that were overgrazing their winter ranges. However, biologist Doug Smith expresses his disagreement with those people who view that the long-term survival of the wolf could be improved by protecting them from hunting.
