Only 3 wolves left on Michigan’s Isle Royale

Only three wolves now remain on Michigan's Isle Royale, down from nine wolves last year, Michigan Technological University scientists reported Friday…Michigan Tech ecologist John Vucetich, part of the wolf survey team, said he would not be surprised if no wolves remain by next winter. "It's like asking if a person on their deathbed is going to die tomorrow or the next day," he said. "I don't know, but the important point is they are on their deathbed."
