🐺🐺Why we need wolves

People are killing wolves for their fur, bones, teeth, and meat. We needs wolves for our wildlife. They help with keeping the population of the animals they eat down. In 2001 when wolves went extinct in Yellowstone Park the moose population bolted 5 time its normal population.


First off, wolves help by reducing sick animals life time and stops infections spreading. When a wolf kills a animal like a elk it is good for the soil. In 2009, there was a study found that when a wolf killed a elk the nitrogen and other nutrients levels raised. Wolves help keep the prey population healthier. Also they prey on sick, young, old, weak or injured animals.


If wolves went extinct, the elk, moose, and other hoofed animals’ populations would increase because they would no longer have a natural predator. This has already been demonstrated when the wolves went extinct in Yellowstone Park the moose population bolted upward.
