Return Of The Wolf: Conflict & Coexistence

Author(s): Paula Wild
Wolves were once common throughout N.A. and Eurasia. But bounties and organized hunts had drastically reduced their numbers. Today, the wolf is returning to its ancestral territories, and a smaller, bolder wolf-coyote hybrid is becoming more common. Paula Wild gathers accounts of encounters with wolves and consults with wildlife experts for suggestions on how minimize conflict, respond to aggressive wolves and coexist with this predator. She examines our evolving relationship with wolves and how society's attitudes affect the populations, behavior and conservation of wolves today. As a highly social, intelligent animal, the wolf is proving adept at navigating the challenges of an ever-changing landscape. Wolves are adapting to humans; can humans adapt to wolves?
