Day in the life of Doug Smith, Yellowstone wolf biologist

Feature on Yellowstone’s lead wolf biologist-

Dr. Smith has run the Park’s wolf program for about 14 of the 15 years since wolves were restored to the Park. He helped me learn much of what I know about wolves, especially in the early years.

    Journalism is really becoming a joke. Facts are never checked anymore. The canyons are wily because they travel up and down the lamar valley? Interesting.

    There is also a series on wolves that was started in yesterday’s Chronicle by Daniel Persons and Sean Sperry.

    “Wolves on the Range”

    Doug Smith’s book (co author Gary Ferguson) “Decade Of The Wolf” was well written & informative. I recommend the book to those who want a good summary of the wolf’s effects in YP. He desrcribes the 1st decade as a “feast for science”.

    Monty, That book is very good and goes into a little more detail than the annual wolf reports.
