Wapiti and the Western Wolf

A Landscape-Scale Retrospective Review

The return of gray wolves to the western United States and their reintroduction to Yellowstone National Park in the 1990s sparked intense public interest in the increasing role of wolf predation on wapiti (elk) and deer dynamics throughout the Intermountain West. Wild lands have cultivated a keen interest in researchers and sportsmen for over a century. While scientists can only speculate at the long-term ecological and cultural consequences of the return of large predators to the Cascades and Rocky Mountains, one thing is certain: undertakings that will forever change the way we understand earth's dynamics and the role of wildlife management have been brought about by these captivating animals.
