Comments on January Issue
Last month's eCurrents included a video about wolves in Yellowstone National Park that generated a few phone calls and emails. 3 Rivers contracts with a third party to provide most of the information in this newsletter, including the wolf video in the January issue. However, that does not excuse us from being more attentive when reviewing the material presented. As several readers pointed out, this video contained several misrepresentations and factual errors (not the least of which was identifying elk as deer!) and we regret including it. 

To read about another side of this issue, here are a couple of things you might want to check out: "Is the Wolf a Real American Hero?" an Op Ed piece written by Arthur Middleton in the March 9, 2014 edition of the New York Times and "The Real Wolf" by Ted Lyons and Will Graves, Farcountry Press.
