Michigan’s Isle Royale is down to one wolf
Last month, I told you about a documentary I saw at the East Lansing Film Festival about the wolves and moose on Isle Royale in Lake Superior. The documentary is called "Predator/Prey: The Fight For Isle Royale Wolves": The moose population is growing at 20% a year, while the wolf population keeps dropping. According to the Detroit Free Press, researchers now believe there's only one wolf left, a female. The Isle Royale National Park is a true wilderness, with current laws that prohibit man interfering with nature, including restocking the animal populations. Even though, a hundred years ago, humans were all over the island, so it's not like it's an untouched place.
Hopefully the powers that be will decide to restock the island with more wolves and do it soon. That decision is still pending.
