Salt Lake City, Utah – Conservation biologist Cristina Eisenberg says we have a long and complicated relationship with wolves. She actually uses the term "pathological" to describe it. Eisenberg explains some people irrationally love wolves - without taking human needs into consideration. Others have demonized the predators - without recognizing the vital role they play in our ecosystems. Wednesday we continue our series on predators. Eisenberg joins Doug to talk about striking a balance on wolf management in the West.
