It really depends on where you are in their individual ranges? Saying the species is fine yet they barely exist in the majority of their historic ranges. I actually had the pleasure of studying wolves in Wisconsin, the amount of hatred and propaganda spread is impressive. It’s been mentioned that their numbers are expanding and causing problems for farmers and that hunting is the answer. The problem with this, hunting wolves is actually proven to cause more depredation because it often fractures the pack dynamics. When the packs become fractured they have difficulty taking down normal prey so they go after easy prey like cows.
