Will We Ever Coexist With Gray Wolves?

Will We Ever Coexist With Gray Wolves?

Conservationists, hunters and politicians have debated about gray wolves for decades, while the animals were left to accept the closest thing resembling a consensus.

The animal was nearly extinct by the '30s, but was eventually protected by the federal Endangered Species Act in 1973. Three years ago, its protections were stripped. Adding more damage, states like Idaho have since made it even easier to kill wolves through legislation.

Earth Focus traveled to Wyoming and Montana to discover if humans and wolves will ever fully coexist. Interview subjects range from Yellowstone National Park biologists to environmentalists and bow hunters.

EARTH FOCUS airs every Thursday at 9 p.m. ET (6 p.m. PT) on Link TV—channel 375 on DIRECTV and channel 9410 on DISH Network. Episodes are also available to watch online at linktv.org/earthfocus.
