WYOMING – Tonight on CBS, 60 Minutes reports on the wolves of Yellowstone National Park. The show begins at 6 pm MST.
Local Jackson photographer, Chris Figenshau, helped the CBS crew on-site in the National Park. The journalists were fortunate enough to spot a wolf pack on the move in Lamar Valley in northern Yellowstone.
Starting in 1995, the wolf was reintroduced to Yellowstone. Wolves were transported from Alberta, Canada and released in the park. Since then, the population has grown to about 100 wolves in as many as 10 packs. The 60 minutes piece covers the tracking of these wolves, the impact on the surrounding local economies, and the perspective of ranchers. Check out the above preview or click here.
