Wolf #755, an alpha male of a Yellowstone National Park pack, must survive as a fugitive after his mate is legally shot and killed by Wyoming wolf hunters. He must fight for his life in the midst of subzero winters, rival wolf packs, and fierce grizzly bears. His goal is daunting: to become the first wolf in Yellowstone’s history to be the founder of two packs. But his life story begins to symbolically resemble the historical plight of his species. Heavily persecuted during the last century, wolves represent a controversial divide among residents in Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming. Stuck in the middle of a legendary debate, 755 must put everything on the line just to survive.
Support Gray Wolves in the Rocky Mountains
Gray wolves have been a persecuted species in America for more than a century. They were extirpated from Yellowstone National Park by 1926. Despite being reintroduced in 1995, wolves continue to be under threat by gratuitous hunting and trapping in Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. There are several important ways that anyone can help the cause of the wolves. The easiest way is to contribute to organizations that are dedicated to educating the public about wolves and fighting for their protection. However, one of the best ways to help is to get involved directly. Write to state and federal politicians about the importance of wolf conservation. Along with this, go to Yellowstone and see the wolves in person. It will be an unforgettable experience.
