Yellowstone Wolves Stable, Grizzlies More Comfortable Around Humans

A new report shows that Yellowstone’s wolf population is now around 80 individuals. Doug Smith who leads the Yellowstone Wolf Project said the decline can be largely accounted for by one wolf pack that often migrates in and out of the park.  The National Park Service report also shows that Yellowstone’s grizzly population is stable. The park’s grizzlies are, however, growing more habituated to humans as the number of annual tourists continues to rise.
