Wolves Helping Bears

Hello, Karstuhl here!

Wolves are important in the eco system. In the American national park Yellowstone, wolves vanished in the early 20th century, making elks much more abundant. These elks ate the berries upon which bears get an important part of their diet. When wolves have now returned, decimating the number of elks, the bears of Yellowstone gets a better diet and feel better.

It is nice that our wild cousins can help bears in the forests. It is a little like us dogs helping teddy bears through life as toys.
