It's wonderful news that wolves are on the comeback. Persecuted and misunderstood, hunted to near extinction in many parts of the world it's gratifying that in recent times more enlightened people and biologists have come to understand the crucial role these highly intelligent and social animals have in the environment. After serious degradation of Yellowstone due to the booming populations of deer and elk when wolves were exterminated it became obvious just how important they are. Reintroduction is taking place in Europe too, finally we are understanding that apex predators are an essential part of the landscape keeping populations of grass eaters in check and playing their role in the finely balanced cycle of nature.
