This put a high hunting pressure on the wolf population throughout the coming centuries. During the 1950s the wolf´s demise was a fact. The population was estimated at around 20 animals, which led to the ban of wolf hunting in 1966.1The ban on wolf hunting was lifted in 2010 -2011.

Never Cry Wolf by Farley Mowat is a non-fiction story about naturalist Farley Mowat, on an expedition to find out why so many caribou were being killed. Mowat’s superiors believed that wolves were killing the caribou. He spent almost a year investigating the wolves’ way of life focusing on a small pack made up of two males and a female with her pups. Mowat camped near their den and observed their eating and hunting habits.He observed that wolves rarely ate caribou and when they did, it was the weak and sick ones. Also, with the help of Ootek, a local Eskimo he was able to understand how wolves communicate and hunt, and he saw that these wolves were not a tremendous threat to the caribou.
"I have watched the face of many a newly wolfless mountain, and seen the south-facing slope wrinkle with a maze of new deer trails. I have seen every edible bush and seedling browsed, first to anaemic desuetude, and then to death" (Leopold 2). This quote from "Thinking Like a Moutain" supports the fact that author Aldo Leopold believes that an ecosystem is nothing without its plants and animals. Similarly, in the documentary Cold Warriors: Wolves vs. Buffalo, director Jeff Turner explains that wolves and buffalo in Wood Buffalo National Park (WBNP) work against each other to create a beautiful ecosystem, and healthy place for plants and animals to live. For this, and other reasons, Aldo Leopold would feel conflicted about what is happening in WBNP.

Also each year 16,000 dogs killed each year in organized dog fights (Please Help Stop Organized Dog Fighting) and that number continues to grow. Yes I know we are trying to stop but why are we trying to stop something that only 142 dogs have died in over a 44 year span (Gerken) yet 1.2 million are dieing and some just cause owners abandoned them. I don’t think it’s an issue that only 142 dogs have died in 44 years and those are my reasons why. My second piece of evidence is the rule book that states there will be no
The majority of the amount of animals that are killed in the wild are because of hunters. Humans usually kill these animals for accessories such as fur, meat, and other body parts. Creatures in the wild are almost always being hunted, whether it’s by a predator or a hunter. Law enforcers have tried to eliminate the amount of hunters by not allowing road building or hunting in certain areas. This definitely helped a lot, but still doesn’t fix the problem with predators.

It was the Stone Age about this time man was just beginning to tame the wolf, this is the dog 's wild ancestor. Since the Stone Age was way before people discovered metal, this meant our ancestors had to catch animals the hard way on foot and with only the simplest of tools they could. Forget about a four-wheel drive and steel-tipped boots. After thousands of years, our ancestors only managed to domesticate 14 of the bigger sized animals by the time Columbus stepped foot in the America. Sure our ancestors tamed lots of smaller animals along the way but we 're only focusing on the bigger ones, you know animals with serious teeth or hooves animals that we 're a bit trickier to domesticate.
In the article ¨ 6 Endangered Animals Poachers Are Hunting Into Extinction,¨ Jessica Phelan describes how the killing of Cecil the Lion decreased the tourism in Zimbabwe due to the hunting. This is just one example of poachers interfering with human life. If more of this continues, humans will be the only living thing on Earth. For elephants, laws have been passed to protect the ivory in their tusks that everyone wants to get hands on. In 2011, one in every 12 African elephants were killed (Phelan).
“Poaching is a deadly crime against wildlife. Wildlife officials say that illegal hunters kill tens of millions of animals every year. For each of those animals, another is killed illegally, perhaps on closed land or out of season, leaving orphaned young to starve.” this means that tens of millions of animals are being killed for their costly skin, bones, furs and horns. “The illegal wildlife trade is valued at between $5-20 billion USD per year, it is the fourth most lucrative global crime after drugs, humans and arms.” There is more illegal poaching of animals than other types of purloining.” In 2011 between 40,000 and 60,000 pangolins were captured and killed in Vietnam alone” Pangolin is an animal only found
