Wild Wolves

Program Overview


Note: The hunting scenes in this program are very graphic. You should preview the program to determine the appropriateness for your classroom.

The relationship between wolves and humans is long and complex. Although ancient wolves are the ancestors of today's domesticated dogs, over time wolves have come to be seen as violent predators. In the United States, changing laws over the past 80 years demonstrate the wide range of opinions about wolves. Ranchers, environmentalists, residents, and government officials have been involved in ongoing disputes over the question of whether and where wolves should be allowed to roam. This NOVA program profiles the wolf's diet, habitat, and hunting behavior and examines the connection between wolves and human culture.
