Two decades later, there were an estimated 200 in 54 packs throughout the northern part of the state. Richard P. Thiel was team chairman for Wisconsin's wolf recovery plan in the late 1980s, and Keepers of the Wolves recounts the wonder, frustrations, and everyday hard work of the field biologists and others charged with tracking and protecting these fascinating and misunderstood creatures. This new edition updates the evolving story of timber wolves in Wisconsin, as they have spread into the central part of the state. This has led to new conflicts with landowners and recreationalists, changes in state and federal policies, the establishment of a state wolf-hunting season in 2012, and the reinstatement of wolves as an endangered species in late 2014. The book concludes with Thiel's considered forecast for the future of wolves in Wisconsin."--Publisher."@en ;
