Lobo's legacy -

Interesting prog on TV about a wolf called Lobo, who avoided a hunter named Seaton in the wilds of New Mexico in the 1890s. Lobo was extremely elusive, even learning how to trigger traps and still take the bait. Finally, Seaton trapped Lobo's mate and killed her, and used her scent to trap Lobo (awe). In that final moment of triumph, Seaton saw the light, didn't shoot Lobo, but alas Lobo still died (of a broken heart - awe). Seaton went on to write a book about the experience, and his noteriety allowed him to become highly influential in the creation of America's National Park system and the US scouting movement. They are now re-introducing wolves into these National Parks to replicate the original food chain. Which begs the question: should we be doing this in the UK, where there is already talk of re-introducing wolves and other predetors into parts of Scotland? :confused:

What a wonderful story. Wolves are beautiful, intelligent animals that have had a bad "press" for far too long. They are not inclined to kill and eat human beings, despite fairy tales to the contrary, and as part of the food chain they help to control vermin. I hope they do reintroduce them in Scotland.

What channel was it on and when... and what was it called?

 

I'd love to watch it if it's repeated. Wolves are beautiful and truly fantastic creatures, although the prog. does sound rather sad from what you've said :(
