He will discuss the implications of this relationship on wolf policy in Wisconsin.

Never Cry Wolf is a True Story About a Government Determined to Scapegoat Wolves

A never ending story…

A government researcher, sent to research the “menace” of wolves in the north, learns about the true beneficial and positive nature of the species.

Never Cry Wolf is a 1983 American drama film directed by Carroll Ballard. The film is an adaption of Farley Mowat’s 1963 autobiography Never Cry Wolf and stars Charles Martin Smith as a government biologist sent into the wilderness to study the caribou population, whose decline is believed to be caused by wolves, even though no one has seen a wolf kill a caribou. The film also features Brian Dennehy and Zachary Ittimangnaq.

“And this is what happened, and this is why the caribou and the wolf are one; for the caribou feeds the wolf, but it is the wolf that keeps the caribou strong.”  ― Farley Mowat

  

Will humankind ever learn from the lessons of the past? 

Never Cry Wolf was the film where I first fell in love with the wolf. ~ Rachel
