Wolves were missing from Yellowstone for over 70 years. Finally re-introduced with much trepidation ( cattle ranches, farmers ect) They were going to redress the balance, it has worked to a degree, but soon as they leave the park boundaries they become fair game for every hunter. I know not why !! This individual is a captive specimen kept in a West Yellowstone sanctuary.
