Who ever takes their own advise? However clever it may sound at the time people are fairly good at being hypocritical. A lot of effort is made by developed countries to engage people in developing countries to live alongside wild animals. Perhaps being so relaxed about the protection of our own top predators doesn't send out the most reassuring message.
During the same time wolves have been vindicated by science as key ecological species. As top predators, wolves not only manage prey populations of animals such as deer and elk, but also change their behavior, curbing unhindered grazing. For example, the wolf's return to Yellowstone National park led to a resurgence in young forest and a subsequent explosion in biodiversity. But in many states wolves are now actively hunted and trapped. A legislative rider stripped the wolves of protection from the Endangered Species Act in 2011, the only animal to ever lose its protection in this way
