DNR presents myths and facts of wolves

NEGAUNEE — A presentation about the myths and facts of wolves was presented at the Michigan Iron Industry Museum in Negaunee today.

The Department of Natural Resources talked about the different myths that have been popular in pop culture and the public involving the wolves in Michigan.
The event also gave a chance to talk about the benefits of wolves and how they have been able to recover due to the endangered species act.

“I think it’s a real opportunity to show case the endangered species list did work,” said DNR Wildlife Biologist, Brian Roell. “The act did what it was supposed to do and we now have a recovered population of wolves here in Michigan.”

Even though wolves are not appreciated in every situation, they are an important factor to the Upper Peninsula’s ecosystem and its culture.
