Great summary of many years of research on wolf populations in Minnesota. If you're into wolf ecology you should probably read this book. I learned a lot. Fun fact - adult moose are often infested with many ticks at the end of winter. In some cases as many as 50,000 per individual. This weakens the moose and makes them more susceptible to wolf predation. It's a tough world out count your blessings!
This informational text is a valuable resource for anyone looking to learn more about the natural history of wolves. It is technical but also comprehensible enough for a layperson. The color glossy pictures are pretty, too.
