Why make a film about Wisconsin’s gray wolf?
For over two decades, I have listened to the many voices of people concerned about Wisconsin’s wild wolves. Some people want them gone, while others don’t want a hair on their heads touched. The loudest voices are extreme on the fringes and dominate the media, social media, to be exact. Most of the public isn’t even aware that we have wolves here in Wisconsin. I wanted to make a film about the Wisconsin wolf and the people. The Annishanabe have lived with wolves and consider him their brother. They understand him. And are opposed to wolf hunting. I believe their voice is integral to wolf recovery in Wisconsin.
