A review can only hint at the depth and importance of this
masterpiece setting the record straight about wolves. It awaits
world-wide readers who long to know the truth about wolves. In
its twenty-one chapters devoted to essential topics by individual
authors, The Real Wolf presents an encyclopedia array of information
about the history and nature of wolves, as well as the army of
methods by which the wolf was sold to the general public and
the tragic effects on livestock producers and on wildlife since
introduction of the Canadian wolf to the Northern Rockies.

in the Northern Rockies: What Pro-Wolf Advocates Do Not Want
You to Know" - Address by Charles E. Kay, Ph.
D., Wildlife Ecology, John M. Huntsman School of Business, Utah
State University, Address to the Sixteenth Annual National
Conference on Private Property Rights, Latham, N.Y., October
20, 2012 (Property Rights Foundation of America, Inc.)
Charles Kay's presentation ranged widely across the
many aspects of reintroducing wolves to the Northern Rockies,
and how his knowledge may be applicable to the East, where there
is talk of putting wolves in upstate New York. He repeatedly
exposed corruption of science and the ignorance of federal judges.
He took the audience through the depredations by the colonizing
wolves and the resultant near extinction of the elk, debunking
the distracting established themes from "predator-mediated
competition" to the supposed relevance of habitat.
As his talk gathered steam, he said that the wolves are now in
the process of wiping out woodland and mountain caribou across
the length and breadth of Canada. The wolf has reduced hunting
opportunities by ninety percent in the Northern Rockies, as he
predicted in 1993. Livestock losses in the West have been virtually

Foundation of America, Inc.)
In this very concise summary, Will Graves systematically refutes
some of the claims that wolves would have no significant impact
when their reintroduction was planned for Yellowstone National
Park: The actual impact included devastating impact on hunting;
the elk population and many other species are decimated. He also
countered claim that wolves cull only the sick and old.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation's
Strategic Plan for its 442 state forests comprising 786,000 acres
outside the Adirondack and Catskill Forest Preserves focuses
on ensuring connectivity for wildlife movement between large
"matrix blocks" of state forests maintained
as mature cover connected with wide, natural strips of land with
a high percentage of forest cover. This system would enhance
connectivity though deep forested areas from Ontario to Georgia.

what I have learned is from reading Russian and talking to Russians.
In my opinion, many western writers and specialists on wolves
have become enamoured with these animals
However, most of
these pro-wolf writers are basing their conclusions primarily
on emotions, and not on facts."

Cheyenne, Wyoming; Speech to the Ninth Annual Conference on
Private Property Rights (PRFA, Albany, N.Y. October 22, 2005)
Threats to private property rights affect our families, our
communities, our environment, our educational system and the
future of our children. With the Preble's Jumping Mouse
and the introduction of the Canadian gray wolf into Wyoming as
examples, the Endangered Species Act is being manipulated, not
for the purpose of benefiting endangered species, but to limit
management and use of private property.
