Wolves in the Midwest vs. the West

Wolves in the Midwest vs. the West. What’s the Difference? Us.

The article by Brodie Farquhar, linked above, does a good job of exploring the differences in attitudes toward wolves around the country. Referencing a master's thesis by Melanie Jane Houston, Farquhar writes:
What Houston found is that overall, media attitudes toward wolves are largely negative and have become more so in the past decade. Houston’s research contradicts analysis by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that public attitudes toward wolves has improved over the past three decades.
Not a good sign for the wolves.
