Yellowstone Popularity Contest - by Maria Ferguson
And the winner is ……….. Wolves as Yellowstone’s most popular wildlife! I remember visiting Yellowstone as a child and everyone including myself wanted to see a Bear. Things have changed since the reintroduction of Wolves into Yellowstone in 1995. The latest wildlife craze in the Park is Wolf tracking. As the "new kids on the block", Wolves are causing visitors to flock into Yellowstone. This majestic predator has been bringing lots of new press to the Park and in turn people are trying to catch a glimpse of this illusive creature.
