In Alberta, wolves have become the unfair scapegoat for dwindling caribou populations - yet rapid industrial development is actually to blame. The Alberta government is ignoring reports from independent scientists that the declining caribou health stems chiefly from habitat destruction caused by the encroachment of the tar sands and timber industries.

Gray Wolves were eliminated from all lower 48 states when the last remaining 600 wolves which were in Minnesota were granted Federal protection in 1978. After 20 years on the endangered species list, the wolf population increased to about 2400 wolves in 1998 and the population has stayed stable at just under 3000 wolves in 2007. A wolf management Plan was passed into law in 2001 in preparation for the gray wolf Federal delisting. This plan took two years of the cooperative efforts of over 30 organizations and stakeholders and resulted in a compromise agreement. It states that "population management including public taking (i.e. hunting and trapping) will be considered by DNR in the future, but not sooner than 5 years after Federal delisting. If a public take was proposed then there would be opportunity for full public comment. Decisions for any public take will be based on sound biological data including comprehensive population surveys."

A must read, wonderful story about living with Camp Ripley, a 53,000 acre National Guard facility in Minnesota. One of the biggest surprises has been the wolves’ remarkable tolerance for humans, despite truck traffic and loud artillery fire that frequently shakes buildings miles from the camp. “Wolves didn’t care,” said David Mech, senior research scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey, who helped establish the program. “It was certainly contrary to what anyone would think.” So why can't people be more tolerant of wolves? No small irony that wolves find sanctuary on a military base.
