Wapiti and the Western Wolf

A Landscape-Scaled Retrospective Review

Wild lands cultivate a keen interest in scientists, sportsmen, and enthusiasts alike. The reintroduction of gray wolves to Yellowstone National Park in the 1990s and the natural return of wolves to the western United States has sparked intense public interest in the role of predation on the population dynamics of the deer and the American elk, also known as the wapiti. While science can often speculate at the long-term ecological and social consequences of rebounding apex predator groups to the Cascade and Rocky Mountain states, one thing is certain: new undertakings that will forever change the way we understand the earth's dynamics and the role of wildlife management have been brought about by these captivating animals.
