Wild Howl: The Wolf Returns to Yellowstone
 (No. 907)
For centuries wolves in legend and fairytale were regarded as vicious, bloodthirsty, and evil. The wolf's return to Yellowstone has asked us to rethink these myths. For the Shoshone, Wolf brother created Yellowstone. For others, the wolf represents our vain tinkering with nature. For the National Park Service, restoring the wolf to Yellowstone restores the natural balance missing in its ecosystem for nearly seventy years. Like all conservation stories of our time, the wolf's return to Yellowstone blends myth, emotion, and controversy. This film explores the range of controversy and reverie surrounding the wolf's wild howl in Yellowstone. (First Aired Friday, April 18, 1997)
