Return of the Wolves

Nov 20, 2013

It’s been 20 years since wolves were reintroduced to the American West and placed on the endangered species list. Advocates for the wolf say the animals serve a vital role in the region’s ecology. Hunters and ranchers, meanwhile, see wolves as a threat to their way of life, one imposed by an intrusive federal government. KUED 7 has produced a new documentary that explores both sides of this heated controversy. We’ll talk about it Thursday, and examine how the return of wolves to the West is playing out.

Return of the Wolves: The Next Chapter airs Monday, November 25 at 9 p.m. on KUED 7 in Salt Lake City.


  • John Howe is a producer for KUED 7. Return of the Wolves: The Next Chapter is his third documentary chronicling the story of wolves in the West.
  • David Moskowitz is a professional wildlife tracker, photographer and outdoor educator. He's the author of Wolves in the Land of Salmon [Amazon|Indiebound].
