Produced and directed by KUED-TV's (Salt Lake City, Utah) John Howe, this award-winning documentary discusses the conceptions and misconceptions of wolves and how wolves were exterminated in the lower 48 states. Although this documentary dates from before the reintroduction of wolves into Yellowstone National Park, it explores the two sides of the issue. Ranchers and others feel wolves are a threat to their way of life and oppose reintroduction. In 1995, wolves were actually reintroduced to Yellowstone and Idaho. Howe's sequel, "The Snow Wolves" picks up where this first film left off and follows the reintroduction efforts over a period of a year and a half as wolves are transplanted from Canada to Yellowstone. 60 minutes)
