The link below is to an article on Bloomberg regarding the American Prairie Preserve, a very interesting and potentially important project for Montana. It does well to dedicate land for pure-bred Bison and this group claims that on the preserve Bison will “mingle with coyotes, prairie dogs and other scourges of the cattlemen with whom the Prairie Reserve is battling (when it isn’t buying them out).”
But there is no mention of wolves in this article – none. Considering how persecuted the Gray Wolf has become, this project could offer incredible habitat and help to offset the horrendous losses already being seen in the Rocky Mountain Region now that delisting has taken full force. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. I recommend all interested in the precarious state of wolves in the lower 48 inquire as to what status wolves will enjoy on the American Prairie Preserve.
