Ask not for whom the wolf stalks …

Recently read a good article on the balance of carnivores and vegetarians … And how removing the hunter has a long term detrimental effect on the prey. I have watched a show in National Geographic Channel some years back on the Yellowstone Wolves and how they where doing after being reintroduced to the area some 12 or so years earlier and how observers had seen several changes in the park and not what you would expect like less deer, coyotes etc, but more vegetation was now growing along wolves highways and some noticeable signs of rivers slowly changing courses through river banks not being eroded so heavily etc, more of a natural path.

I have not seen or read much else on the subject until I read this article this week … I thought I would share as I find it pretty interesting to know to know the carnivore and vegetarian both benefit from each other …

Here is the article if you are interested in a short read … I will be searching out if there is any more articles I can find to add to this post over time …
