Park service to release Isle Royale wolf population plan

HOUGHTON, Mich. (WLUC) – Isle Royale could be down to its last wolf, but all hope is not yet lost.After several years of research, the National Park Service is close to releasing their final plan for Isle Royale’s wolf population.”Right now the alternative that is going forward as the prefered is the same one that we identified in the plan last year and that is to introduce wolves in a short time period: 20 to 30 wolves over about a three year time period in order to establish a self-sustaining population on the island,” said National Park Service public information officer said Liz Valencia.The decision can’t come soon enough for researchers. The wolf population dwindled down to two in the past years. Scientists have only seen signs of one wolf so far this winter.
