International Wolf;Fall2013, Vol. 23 Issue 3, p24
The article discusses the struggle to restore wolves in the Rocky Mountains from 1980 to 1995. Aside from the wolves, the author shares that those who opposed wolves were also wary of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and the possibility of federal meddling in their local affairs. To resolve the issue, a bargain was made wherein if wolves were allowed to come back, it was promised that the wolves that attack livestock will be eliminated, written into the Environmental Impact Statement.
