OK, so let’s get some facts straight. Since 1900, there have been 2 documented deaths caused by gray wolf attacks. Two in the last 100 years! Really… Why then are we afraid? Because of childhood fairy tales like “Little Red Riding Hood” and cartoons depicting the big bad wolf. It was rather scary growing up with these fables. Plus many ranchers and hunters see the wolf, any wolf, as bad for their cattle or their hunting. Is this true? Well, no. Wolves rarely target cattle and domestic dogs kill far more cattle than wolves. For hunters, wolves keep the deer & elk herds healthy by eliminating the sick & diseased ones.
