For centuries, wolves have played a part in the American imagination. But views of them have been complex, and often negative.
A newly re-published book by Arthur H. Carhart, called Last Stand of the Pack, is a case study of some of those views in action. It tells the story of the complete extermination of all the wolves within the state Colorado. Cortez resident Dr. Tom Wolf is one of the editors of the new edition, along with Dr. Andrew Gulliford of Durango. KSJD's Austin Cope spoke to Dr. Wolf to learn more about wolves in Colorado, and the complexities that come with their management.
