Well done overview of the issues concerning wolf reintroduction and wolf management.
Unfortunately the vast majority of the "pro wolf" constituency isn't willing or able to listen to or consider facts - they are willing and capable only of listening to and regurgitating the propaganda perpetuated by "pro wolf" groups like Defenders of Wildlife and Center for Biological Diversity - analogous to the "Flat Earth Society" members who insist there's no such thing as "global warming" or "climate change".

I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each."
True, I know it was a different time but wonder why when there was a bounty, emphasis on trapping and even poisoning in the 19**'s on wolves back then. Was it more of a hunting environment or was there human threats or a combo of many things.
Yet again, although in vain, again, I will post a book that is an excellent read about a guy who lived in the Alaskan bush and grew to know the habits of wolves quite well. It is well written and not boring. It'll tell you what you want to hear and what you don't want to hear about wolves. If I remember correctly, the guy starts out as a fur/bounty trapper and ends his career helping to do studies for Fish and Wildlife on wolves. It's a good read for dark winter days and is also educational. I found it at a library.
-------------- What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be human––animals and aliens are great possibilities
