Good article about the wolves. Did not know Mech had changed his mind about adding wolves to IR.

You see lots of people use the phrase "restocking the zoo". Not sure i agree with the rationale for it.

Very good article. Thanks for posting.

Thanks John. One of the better articles I've read on the issue.

It's the emotional argument, similar to the "it won't be Isle Royale without wolves" from the other side. Neither is particularly rational.

Interesting, did not realize that either. Wonder if that had any influence on the final decision.
