Re: Wolves in New Location June 28

I saw a lone wolf in that area when I first entered the park on May 19th. I'd heard reports about the Wapitis being in the area the day before, the day the park opened. I never saw more than 7 of them in the Hayden, so it might have been a few others hanging out there.

I hate the traps also but I'm not sure how else you can slow people down without Rangers and radar guns. I will never understand the need for speed in a place like Yellowstone.

Then get rangers with radar guns.
