Terrabytes: Wolves (No. 206)

First Aired Monday, November 06, 2006

This "Terrabytes" episode showcases wolves from three very unique perspectives. First, have the wolves in Yellowstone National Park become too popular for their own good? Wolf-watchers and biologists sound off. Next, on the other side of the world, we look at the role wolves have played in Japanese history -- what brought about the transformation from revered deities to cursed villains? And, finally, we investigate the complex and sometimes competitive relationship between wolves, elk and hunters in the state of Montana. Produced by Tracy Graziano, Jen Shoemaker and Monica Pinzon.
