The National Park Service has authorized the staff working at Michigan's Isle Royale National Park to start the process of capturing 30 wild wolves and relocating them to Isle Royale. According to, it could happen as early as this fall. So, if you were planning on visiting the island this fall, you may want to re-schedule, since they may shut the park down earlier than normal this year.

This is the final step in a process that's taken years. The park has long had a "hands-off" approach when it came to the balance of their wolf/moose population, but with only a couple of wolves now and 1600 moose, I think it's a good decision to introduce the new wolves.

The moose may see it differently.
