The Reintroduction of Wolves to Yellowstone National Park [Article in Mother Earth News]


This article reports on the controversial proposal to reintroduce wolves to Yellowstone National Park. The E. H. McCleery Foundation located near Yellowstone in Emigrant, MT became a topic of conversation when a wolf was recently killed by a car in the area. The wolf was thought to have escaped from the Foundation's wolf preserve which is home to about 80 wolves.

The author called the Foundation and spoke with Mrs. Lynch who made it very clear that she and Jack Lynch hate the Yellowstone wolf recovery project because they know wolves will stray from the park and get shot. The Lynches refused to let the author visit their premises.
