    And not just Isle Royal. Or are they gone?

    Thank you and damn the people who do not respect and protect these beautiful beings of our world.

    •  Michigan's Upper Peninsula has about 650 (4+ / 0-)

      wolves and the DNR has approved the issuing of 43 hunting
      permits to reduce that number slightly.  Isle Royale wolves are in deep trouble with only about 8 left and no indication of any young this spring.  Read about it here The real tragedy of Isle Royale is that Lake Superior doesn't freeze over any more and therefore there is no influx of new DNA strands into the population, so they are becoming too inbred.  National Park "rules" do not allow us to capture Canadian wolves and bring them to the park.  Also, their natural food (moose) are declining in numbers for similar reasons.
      There are no recorded wolves in the lower peninsula - a couple of either large coyotes or coyote/wolf hybrids have been sighted just south of Mackinaw.
