Isle Royale wolves: National Park Service nowhere near a decision

Isle Royale National Park used to be flush with caribou and lynx.  Both are gone now.  That’s what happens on islands, said Paul Brown, Isle Royale’s chief of natural resources.  Species come and go, he said.  It’s the natural way of things…”There is a turn-over with things that live on islands, and that’s normal,” Brown said Thursday at a public meeting on the wolf issue.  “The moose and wolf are newcomers to the island.”
