Wolf reintroduction

Wolf reintroduction involves the reestablishment of a population of Canadian, European, Siberian, Arctic, and Mongolian gray wolves that have been extirpated. The reintroduction is only considered where large tracts of suitable wilderness still exist and where certain prey species are abundant enough to support a predetermined wolf population in Europe and the United States. At least they were successful in Yellowstone national park, Arizona and New Mexico, and Central Idaho. We should also reintroduce them back to the Gulf States, The Carolinas, Great Smoky national park, Sweden and Norway, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Ireland, and Britain. In the 1950's, Mexican gray wolves were thought to be extinct in the wild but have been reintroduced in 2006. This is a captive bred Mexican gray wolf in a pen in Sevilleta national wildlife refuge. The wolf reintroduction to the Scottish highlands and English countryside is controversial but we have to reintroduce them to control deer numbers and when they control the numbers, they will also aid the reestablishment of plants and birds. It's better to reintroduce wolves to the British isles than lynxes and bears there because wolves are social animals with packs of up to 40 members large. But lynxes and bears are solitary and can sometimes hunt in pairs. Wolves were once widespread throughout Canada, Russia, Europe, Alaska, and the United States. Wolves have been hated by humans in North America, Europe, Russia, and Japan. Well, wolves are already extinct in Japan in 1905. Extirpated means root out and completely destroy. I don't like the sound of that. For those of you who like wolves, do you wish you could sue the human race? Should we reintroduce wolves back to Japan? Leave a comment and let me know.
