It's a new year and already at least eight Yellowstone wolves were killed. A few among the killed had wandered out of the park boundaries and were shot down. Others just wandered too close to the boundaries, ending their lives. Five among the killed were used in research, known by the radio collars they wore.
Many of the wolves live among others while a few adventure and find their way around alone. Most of the time the wolves are out searching for mates. When they leave even for a brief amount of time, many are shot down and killed. Wolves should have protection, in and out of the park, considering the shrinking wolf population.
The human kind never knows what we have until we make it disappear. We need to change that.
