Thankful Otter said:The caribou herds, muskox herds, elk herds, and buffalo herds were all pretty large before the 1900's--this is probably because there were no wolves then.
I know there are some here who do not like Thankfull otters straightforwardness. but I think in this day and age of out of control political correctness, it is refreshing.
In reading the article Blkram posted, I would have read it, focusing on the wolf being the culprit, without possibly picking up on the one sentence about years of abuse of the land by the populace , which of course is what the author wanted.
