For hunters and citizens who enjoy seeing wildlife, and for game populations themselves, everything is at stake with the current wolf debate in the Western U.S.

"I would say absolutely people want a hunt," Arnold Popp, a hunter told a reporter with the Leader-Telegram in Eau Claire, Wis. "I don't mind when there are a few wolves, but I talk to a lot of people around here and they're pretty much upset with the number of wolves we have here."
Wolf sightings are increasing in some eastern states as well, where it is believed the animals seen are a type of wolf-coyote hybrid. The increased reports already have some folks anticipating similar battles for the area as are taking place in the West and Midwest now. If so, what ultimately plays out with the latest counter attack in the Rockies could serve as a blueprint of how it will play out in other parts of the country. For hunters and citizens who enjoy seeing wildlife, and for game populations themselves, everything is at stake.
