        Introduction of wolves back into North America is a complex issue. The wolves that were introduced back into Yellowstone have not remained there and the packs are expanding both in size and territory. There is more than speculation that some packs now hunt as far south as Arizona. So, I'm not in favor of human meddling in complex animal populations. Mark
