Wolves in Yellowstone
This essay is about reintroducing the Grey wolf in to Yellowstone National Park. Yellowstone National Park is so vast it extends from Idaho to Wyoming and in to Montana also. Founded in 1872, Yellowstone always had a high grey wolf population until the 1920’s when the U.S. government eliminated all the wolves. How dumb do you have to be? Did any of those government officials know what a food web is? If you know anything about nature you know that it has a natural ebb and flow that you don’t fuck with because when you do, shit hits the fan. The one “M” you shouldn’t mess with, Mother Nature. If you kill off one of the parks best natural predators you’re going to send the food chain crashing to the ground like a game of jenga.
The article then goes on to talk about how government officials would reintroduce the grey wolf back in to the wild and how the number of wolves in the park could not reach more than one hundred. Government officials should reintroduce the grey wolf because, deer, bison, and elk populations will go down (which is good considering there is too many of them), the coyote population has got out of hand and they are decimating the rodent population, and , it was humans who killed them in the first place. After reading the article, the author has convinced me on why they should be reintroduced. She has lined up all the facts for me to see, she told me about all the cons on reintroduction and she has refuted all of them.
