Wolf Park Curator on "The Grey"

A message from Wolf Park about the movie "The Grey":
"Using "The Grey" to understand wolves is like using Hannibal Lecter to understand humans. This film, which perpetuates the myth that wolves and humans cannot coexist, is being released at a time when wolves have been taken off of the endangered species list. We fear that conservation efforts will be hindered by misinformation disseminated by popular fiction such as "The Grey," and, of course, Wolf Park deplores harming of animals for human entertainment."
Head Animal Curator at Wolf Park responds to “The Grey” film in which wolves were harmed in the making.
