In reality, the same ranchers and hunters John Balzar consulted ("Animal Populations Put Parks in a Bind," Part A, Dec. 17) are the source of the problem. Until they drop their opposition to the restoration of the gray wolf to Yellowstone, we can look forward to annual scenes of hunters lined up like firing squads and mowing down buffalo. For tens of thousands of years the wolf has been the key component in keeping prey base populations in balance to any ecosystem the wolf is indigenous to. We can no longer plead ignorance in barring his return to Yellowstone.

Miss Teen USA Cassidy Wolf discussed being a victim in her former high school classmate's “sextortion” case on the “Today” show Friday morning, saying she recognized his name but never talked to him when they went to school together. “It's weird for me to be able to put a face to the person that did this to me and to know its someone I went to high school with,” Wolf told Savannnah Guthrie. On Thursday, 19-year-old Temecula college freshman Jared James Abrahams was taken into custody on federal charges that he "sextorted" newly crowned Miss Teen USA Wolf and other young women around the world by hijacking their computer's webcams to capture naked images.

Massachusetts prison officials must provide a publicly funded sex reassignment surgery to an inmate serving a life sentence for killing his wife, a federal judge in Boston ruled Tuesday. The decision , handed down by U.S. District Court Judge Mark Wolf, is believed to be the first such order by a judge in the nation, lawyer Frances S. Cohen of Bingham McCutchen LLP of Boston, said by telephone. Cohen is one of the attorneys representing Michelle Kosilek, who lives as a woman in an all-male prison.

I enjoyed your article on wolves (Part I, Nov. 2). You presented a well-researched and informative piece. The issue of reintroduction of the wolf touches upon our commitment to a real natural preserve, not sanitized to serve particular economic or recreational interests. Management of the wolves, cattle and indemnification can resolve the problems for the ranchers. Predators are often convenient targets in instances of range and stock mismanagement. Certainly, there is ample evidence that the deer and elk populations will benefit from the return of their most skillful manager, the wolf.
