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

education, lethal control, compensation payments, translocations, livestock-protection
measures, and possibly sterilization, seems to be the approach managers will
have to use.
