Effects of the Return of the Gray Wolf Hunt near Yellowstone

Last night on PBS NewsHour, I saw a great segment about the return of the gray wolf hunt in Montana and Idaho, just along the borders of Yellowstone National Park.

The wolves of Yellowstone have been the subject of much attention in the region. They're adored by many park visitors and wildlife enthusiasts, but disliked by ranchers, who say their livestock are in danger because of the return of these predators.

The PBS NewsHour segment, "Cowboys vs. Gray Wolves: Predator Once Again Prey," reported by Miles O'Brien, takes a look at both sides of this story. Where do you stand? Have a watch below and decide for yourself.

Also worth your time: PBS's stunning photo gallery of Yellowstone's wolves.
