This week, Jacob Jones examines the controversy over wolf management in Idaho. Wolves were driven to extinction in Idaho by settlers in the early 1900s. The federal government reintroduced wolves, who were on the endangered species list, to the state in the 1990s. The photos below are from Wolf People, a center in Cocolalla, Idaho, where visitors can get close to wolves and learn about them. Photos by Young Kwak.
