Return of the Wolf
The University of Arizona, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences
Wolves have been re-introduced across the Western United States and in 2005, they reached Oregon for the first time in over 60 years. To some, this event marks a milestone in repairing fragile ecosystems that have been degraded by humans for too long. To others, they represent a real threat to their economic livelihoods and another tool that extreme environmentalists can use to attack their rural way of life. In this video, we talk with ranchers, the Oregon Cattleman Association, and the ODFW to try and understand this issue without the polarization.
