Wolf Management in the 21st Century:
From Public Input to Sterilization

Conclusions


As we look ahead to the 21st century, no magic solutions appear in sight to the problem of maintaining wolf populations in areas where they do not compete seriously with human beings but restricting them from locales where they do. Rather, some combination of prescription management, fine-grained zoning, public education, lethal control, compensation payments, translocations, livestock-protection measures, and possibly sterilization, seems to be the approach managers will have to use.
