Many years ago, national parks' directors thought that only gentle animals should roam the wilderness. "By 1926, there were no more wolves in the fortyeight states. No voices howled. . . . The wolves were gone." Peace reigned, but without the wolves, other aspects of nature were negatively affected. Over time, people's viewpoints about the wolves changed. In 1995, ten adult wolves were brought from Canada to Yellowstone. The animals thrived, and "the broken parts of the wilderness were tumbling into place. The wolves were back." Sources.
