A staple of western landscapes has returned to dot the scenery in full force. The gray wolf was removed from the endangered species list in what can only be seen as a victory for not only environmentalists, but the ecosystem....although growth may soon threaten them once again. The Rocky Mountains is again the scene for the beautiful creatures to frolic freely without knocking on extinction's door. But the news is not all good for the wolf, according to animal activists. By taking the gray wolf off the endangered list, the animal is now to be regulated by the U.S. Fish and Game commission that will determine hunting seasons and numbers of killed that will be allowed. As the wolf has made its comeback, raises in complaints to the agency have gone up. Residents are routinely seeing the animals on their property and attacks on domestic animals have also risen.
