Killing Wolves May Cause More Livestock Deaths

It seems like the most common-sense argument you could make: if wolves are killing livestock, then the fewer wolves there are, the fewer cattle, sheep, or goats the wolves will kill…it seems too obvious to even bother testing.  But bother some scientists did, and the results are totally counterintuitive, enough to throw the entire debate off-kilter.
