The North American Wolf Reintroduction After reading the article “Yellows Stone After Wolves”, we can see that within Yellowstone National Park, wolves, specifically gray wolves, are being reintroduced after nearly being hunted to extinction during the 19th and 20th centuries.

Their social order, otherwise known as dominance hierarchies, is divided into separate ranks for each member in the hierarchy (Wolf, Funk & Wagnalls New World Encyclopedia.) Even their reproductive relationships are divided up since Zoologists believe that wolves mate for life. These pairs results in cubs, which the care for falls onto the entire pack (Dogs, Wolves, and Coyotes. , Salem Press Encyclopedia of Science). In this paper, we hope to unveil some of the mysteries of Wolves through analyzing their dominance hierarchies, reproductive relationships, and care of young so that one has a fuller understand of the mammalian societies of wolves.

In the following text I will attempt to provide a summary of the history of the Swedish wolf as well as to discuss the importance of not allowing wolf hunting, argue for the positive effect wolves could bring to the Swedish forest ecology, and provide facts to answer common misconceptions about wolves. The wolf has lived with alongside humans throughout history and as a result it has created a mistrust towards the animal.

Along with a law saying that cockfighting and bear-baiting were also banned. Around the time of the 1835 act, the Stafford Shire Bull Terrier was created and was brought to America.
