The last wolves in Yellowstone Nation Park were killed nearly a century ago. But with the support of the American public in 1995 and 1996, a new chapter in Yellowstone’s history began, with a homecoming that changed the Park.

The reintroduction of gray wolves to our first national park has been described as a near-miracle, having occurred at one of those rare moments when stars align in the political sky. A wildlife conservation effort with such positive environmental impact (and ongoing controversy) will likely go unmatched for a long time.

The following video gives an account of the remarkable effect of wolf reintroduction on Yellowstone’s wild landscape.

May 11, 2017 – A month ago today, hikers discovered a severely injured wolf inside Yellowstone National Park. Today, we learn from the National Park Service that the white matriarch of the Canyon Pack was shot by poachers and left to die.

On April 11, hikers discovered the wounded wolf inside the park near Gardiner, Montana. Park staff investigated the situation and concluded the wolf was dying from her injuries. She was euthanized. She was 12 years old. She was protected.

A reward of up to $5,000.00 is offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual(s) responsible for this criminal act.
