"About the death of the youngest the youngest corona virus victim in Georgia only seven years old, and we'll also go to the scene of a huge motorcycle rally this weekend it's now getting underway without any rules for wearing masks or social distancing. Tonight new details on Georgia's youngest corona virus victim a seven year old boy without any underlying health conditions authorities say he died after attending a church where two elderly members tested positive died as well. Our National Correspondent Diane Gallagher of Atlanta for us this is certainly driving home concerns about the reopening schools where you are in Georgia? What's the latest on the? That's right wolf, and again, this is the youngest death unknown at this time for Cope, nineteen in the state of Georgia that seven year old boy according to the coroner was in the shower and he had a seizure they took him to the hospital where he later died. Now, the corner points out that seizures are not uncommon in children when they have very high fevers, his cause of death is listed as Covid nineteen. Again, we know that children can get covid and we see that children can die from covert, and that is a concern among parents and teachers and kids themselves here in Georgia because they. Did go back to class and for some of them, it was in person instruction this week several school districts across the state have already reported positive cases and had to send home dozens of children to quarantine because they came in close contact, and then there was this photo that went viral from North Holding. High School of a clash change a hallway with kids shoulder to shoulder many of them not wearing masks the young girl who took that photo Hannah waters was originally suspended for posting it. The school today were Sunday that suspension saying it wouldn't be on her disciplinary record but Hannah says, she doesn't regret it. I was concerned for the safety of everyone in that building and everyone in the county because. Precautions that the CDC incite guidelines at the CDC has been telling us for months now weren't being followed. And of course, the superintendent of that school district has said that while the photo looks bad, there is additional context wolf he says that look the kids aren't next to each other too long when they're in the hallway and that they are going to continue to take what they've learned from this week and try to implement it with additional standards and try and change things. One thing they're not going to be doing that school is issuing a mask mandate would the superintendent says, it's just too hard to enforce but again. that. They were trying to enforce a cell phone policy on the girl who posted on social media that picture earlier, but they say just not possible to do with masks in high school.
Trump Vows to Issue Executive Orders if Coronavirus Relief Talks Collapse
"Breaking news on the economic front the White House and Democrats say talks of the economic stimulus package they have hit a wall president trump is threatening to take executive action on his own. Let's get details on that from our chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta. Americans they are in desperate economic pain right now but stimulus talks seem to be going nowhere right now what's the latest? Well, that's right. Wolf with negotiations falling apart over Corona Virus Relief Bill White House officials say president trump is now expected to take some kind of executive action to provide financial support to Americans who are struggling to find work during this pandemic the executive orders are likely to include some kind of effort to provide enhanced unemployment benefits as well as some kind of. Action on suspending evictions from rental homes. There may be some other proposals in the mix, and in the meantime, we should point out the president just hinted at the path ahead in the last hour tweeting, we're going a different way that tweet coming from the president in just the last hour, and in the meantime administration officials are throwing cold water on the president's gold having corona virus vaccine ready by election day one senior administration official told me earlier today that timeline is highly unlikely. President trump's claim that a corona virus vaccine could be ready by election day is receiving an injection of reality as top administration health officials are saying, don't bet on it. Then November third. Oh I. Think I think in some cases. Yes. Possible before. But right around that time, a senior administration official told CNN that timeline is just not realistic saying it's quote metaphysically possible but highly unlikely and Corona Virus Taskforce Dr Anthony Fauci said. May Have to wait until November or December just to find out of a vaccine really works adding maybe we'll get an answer as early as October but I doubt it trying to put a finer prediction on the timetable right now I don't think any of us have enough information yet to know how that's going to shake out. The pandemic Bennett economy recovered somewhat in July with the unemployment rate falling to just above ten percent with one point eight million jobs added even with so many Americans still out of work congressional Democrats and White House officials have been at odds all week over Corona Virus Relief Bill with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, pointing the finger at top aides to the president. Now, that's been in the White House when the president's land that table and walked out that's really what Mr. Meadows. Did I on the table can't shoot staff Mark Meadows Jabbing right back I think for those that are suffering they. They should be asking the Democrats in the House and the Senate why why have you failed to meet the needs that we have so rightly expressed without a deal the White House is signaling Mr Trump will take executive action that legal drafting is complete. We've had this intense discussions about this. In the last several days, I don't WanNa make predictions. Democrats are also keeping an eye on election day accusing the administration of making changes to the nation's postal system that could slow down mayland balloting in a letter, the Postal Service Inspector General, a group of Democratic senators wrote the changes appear to pose a potential threat to mail in ballots and the twenty twenty general election President Likes Mail in voting in Florida but not another states like Nevada Florida's got a great Republican governor and it had a great Republican. Got Run to scientists Rick Scott, the president is seizing on comments made by Joe Biden, you seem to say African Americans are less diverse and their political views Latino voters unlike the African American community notable exceptions. The Latino community is incredibly diverse community. With, incredibly different attitudes about different things Biden try to clean that up tweeting in no way. Did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith not by identity not on issues not at all Mr Trump, tweeted biden is no longer worthy of the black vote I don't know what's going on with them, but it was very insulting. The president's attack on Biden are tricky for Mr Trump, who has a long track record of racially offensive behavior including sharing this video, featuring a supporter shouting white power. Now the US intelligence community issued a startling statement on election security today as the US closing in on the fall campaign. In that statement intelligence officials warn Russia is trying to damage from where Vice President Joe Biden. His chances to win the white. House the statement also from the intelligence community says, she prefers that president trump fail in his bid for a second term. These warnings from intelligence officials come at a critical time for American voters who were largely unaware that. The Russians were interfering with the election for years ago this time the voters know all too. Well, what could

Woman Takes Selfie With Bear on Hiking Trail in Mexico
"Taken over. We are striker Incline. Here's our friend David. Oh, no telling us what to do if we happen to encounter a bear and a very cool story, Heart stopping video out of Mexico shows a moment of black bear walks right up to a group of hikers. To begin sniffing a woman's hair. The bear apparently quite interested in this one young woman in particular, and she was hiking with several other people in an ecological park and sent bedroom. Garza Garcia, Mexico When this happened, and now some people might scream or try to run in a situation like this, But this young woman and her friends are all Pretty nonchalant about the whole thing. In fact, the woman whips out her cell phone to take a selfie with the bear since you're supposed to keep from a bear. Is 100 yards and from wolves 100 yards. This is how they knew which one of their friends was having her period bear went right up to her. You could tell very clear. It was very obvious Striker. You could tell which one And they were like, Oh, man, why do we bring sherry this time of the month, and the bear stands up next to her on its hind legs clearly ready for its close up. The bear is much taller than this lady. The bear then begins to walk away before turning back and you'll see it here making a beeline for the woman watches. What he does this and he tries to bite her and then swings on pause at her before casually. Walking away, of course, is not something experts encourage you to do If you encounter a bear in the wild. What should we do? David? Just the opposite. Actually, The best thing that you could do is he seemed out, not take yourself, but I do. Sometimes he knows what he's supposed to say. And he's the lead like Wait a minute. I'll find the one he's supposed to do again. Yell loudly at that they're making as much noise as possible, hopefully scaring it from the area and preserving its natural fear of humans. I don't know if you've ever seen a bear attack, but they are vicious. When they decide to move. They move so quickly. How would she take a cellphone in this world? She's another smart move. Unbelievable. That's that's why the only reason why I played that whole story was to get to the very end of them talking about the bear well. Here's what he said. Is actually something that We're not doing and that is they They were never scared of humans. Then they learn to be scared of humans. And now, once again, they're forgetting to be scared of human. That's the scream is supposed to remind them that they're like, Oh, wait a minute. Hold on. There's a hierarchy here and And that is the major thing that the shift that has been happening as of late. That's why we're calling it. The big animal takeover is that they're just not as scared of us anymore, because instead of us pulling out like a bow and arrow wherever answered We're pulling up.

Michigan tries new approaches to coronavirus testing
"Michigan was one of the State's first at bat against a huge outbreak of corona virus. Michigan hit its peak in April reporting a high of more than eighteen hundred new cases on April. The third new cases remained above fifteen hundred for days that month Governor Gretchen whitmer declared a state of emergency by April first she closed all schools throughout the academic year hospitals were overrun even as workers faced layoffs and paycuts thousands. Of medical workers came down with the virus as they struggled to treat patients, and by the end of the month, the state ranked third for the highest number of coronavirus fatalities in the country Michigan struggled to bend the curve, but Michigan came through the curve bent. Now, the question is whether Michigan can stay out of the red zone and the state has seen a few smaller waves since the worst of it this spring, there was the outbreak last month that. Harper's bar the popular haunt for Michigan State University which reopened to an unexpectedly large crowd on June. The eighth local reporters found young patrons lining up less than six feet apart, and then packing the dance floor like they would on an ordinary non pandemic night. No masks to see in that picture state health officials later link that bar nearly two hundred new infections and today Michigan posted one of its higher totals of statewide new cases for the past couple of. Months and that's concerning especially because everywhere in the country right now, educators are trying to figure out how to get education going again it's basically every state and in some instances, every school district or even school for themselves at Michigan, State, in East Lansing, they're exploring a combination strategy that's going to be new to them, and that might be new for anyone else and it starts with a spit test developed at the university by neuroscience professor named Jack Lipton this man. The kit costs around three dollars a piece, and as you can see, it's pretty simple. You can do this in the privacy of your own apartment or dorm room you put your sample in the vial with the Little Barcode you seal it in the bag and Wallah your part is over the lab at Michigan State will take your sample and combine it with others in what is known as pool testing, which maybe you've heard about recently, the idea behind pulled testing is that it can help labs do more way more with weight less instead of having each person take their own. Separate test you pull the samples from a small number of people about a dozen and you run a single test on that pool of the pool turns up positive only then do you need each person in the pool to take a test but if the pool turns up negative, you're done the single test covered a dozen people in a place where you expect a lot of negatives. Pool testing is remarkably efficient at Michigan state. They're going to step further than that. Each volunteer who takes a spit test goes into separate pools of about ten or so people so think about it like. Two teams. You're Miami Dolphin and a Seattle Seahawk, or you're Houston rocket and in Minnesota Timber Wolves choose your metaphor. The point is if two pools come back with positive results, it can only mean one thing. The lab just finds the person who belongs to both pools using a handy grid like this one, and then recommends that that person get a follow up diagnostic test. It's like playing Bingo be six Bingo you might have corona virus. That's what Professor Lipton plans to do with samples from MSU volunteers testing two thousand of them every day and referring any apparent positives for an individual diagnostic test. Now, the third and most unusual part of this plan has to do with sewage scientists are discovering that they can spot a rising rotavirus cases early on by texting. Communities, Wastewater Michigan State, professor, Joan Rose and her team have been testing the campus wastewater. Since April she says, they noticed a peak in the virus that lined up with the news about an outbreak at a college hang out which demonstrated that there sewage diving expeditions worked I made that up I don't know if they're actually diving. For the testing this fall, the idea is to sample the wastewater from different places on campus so that they can get hyper local data if they can get good enough at sampling and turning around their result in a timely fashion, their work could act as an early alert system for Michigan State perhaps, even at the level of individual buildings. So you've got the pool testing with the affordable spit kits you've got expanded. Diagnostic testing. But literally just for those people who appear to be positive or just playing turn-up sick and then you've got the wastewater testing which increasingly looks like a functioning means of getting a warning in time to react if the plan works, it could help the university find and contain outbreaks. If it works the plan could help Michigan State and it's sixty seven thousand students stay on campus and have something like a semester. Joining us now is the aforementioned Dr Jack? Lipton. Of Translational Neuroscience at Michigan State University Dr Lipton. Thank you for being with us. We've heard about pool testing I want you to tell us a little more about it and why it it specifically helpful in this instance what what about Michigan State makes it a perfect candidate for the pooling of spit. What would you think about full testing end and Michigan state one of the things that you're that is really important to understand that the resources that we have is that university are fairly limited. Bright. But we're not a multinational corporation. So funds are limited resources are limited and pooling allows us to. have. More. More test being done with the same amount of resources or with less resources. So in this case, if we're dealing with supply chain issues with testing if we can test ten people with reagents that we would need to test one person, then we are were saving a lot in terms of of supplies, and if we don't have to run ten tests and we can run one test, we save a lot of time. So if you can save time and you can save supplies, you're going to Yeah. Ultimately conserve and that's really what our goal is and this. This works 'cause you're not expecting a large proportion of people to have this thing right. So generally speaking a bunch of these pools, we'll come out negative. Right. pools if you if you have about ten people in a pool in your expectation is maybe seeing two or three out of a hundred people. Show up positive than most of your pools are going to be negative. The more the prevalence increases the more the rates of infection increase. Then you're going to have more and more positive bulls. If one out of every ten people are positive than a pool of ten, most likely is going to have a positive individual in it. So you have to really balance pool size and prevalence together in order to come up with the right balance to save resources and save time. So the this actually could have broader implications There's a Wall Street Journal op-ed that you wrote about a previous test not this one that we're talking about, but it was a concept of pulling in you set across the United States tens of thousands of similar academic research labs have the expertise and equipment to help the country test for covid nineteen. If even one tenth of these labs joined the effort we could. Test an additional five, hundred thousand to one million samples a day. Your larger point here is that there are ways to get to more people and and then figure it out early rather than what we're in right now where there are some places where people are waiting in excess of seven days for typical test results in a in a concentrated environment like Michigan state you can. You can see things early and intervene. Absolutely and I think it's really important to note when you're talking about the pet that we put together. The vast amount of resources and know how that existed the academic laboratories universities across the country. Each one of the things that we've proposed was to develop biomedical National Guard and utilize all of these individual laboratories across the country and have them be organized through the federal government in order to be able to respond to pandemics or other natural disasters with biomedical know-how and that if we could get something like that done if the next administration is interested in doing something like that, we can be. Proactive instead of reactive in these kinds of situations. Wow. That's incredible because you just answer the question I was going to ask I was going to say, Hey, what can government do to take advantage of these kinds of resources and you just answer that I just want to say that again, a biomedical National Guard what a great simple idea resources all over the country run by different people but the the government of the United States providing the centralization for the data and the distribution. If you think about all of the laboratories and universities that were shut down as a result of the pandemic so many people were were sitting home like I sitting home on on zoom all day. If we have opportunity to come back into the laboratory and help. We can do so much in terms of trying to not only develop new new treatments and and working on new methods of detection, which is what our laboratory did during during April we can marshal all of these resources all. Know How that exists in order to to. Attack this problem in a concerted and coordinated way. Lifting. There's not a lot of great news about Krono virus, but I have to tell you after this conversation. I'm optimistic that there are people like you around this country who are actually in this moment while everything looks as grim as it is finding solutions that are going to help us see the other side of the coronavirus. Dr. Jack Lift Lipton is the chair and professor of translational neuro size. I don't even know what that is. We'll talk about that another time at Michigan State University. Thank you for all that you are doing and good luck to you at Michigan. State, we'll stay on top of this with you.

However, However, Governor, Governor, Wolf Wolf says says While the state has offered guidance on how to safely reopen schools, there is no plan to issue a statewide mandate on how schools will open. There's your local school board decisions asses how they open. In the open. It's it's up to them to decide how they're gonna do away kinds of things. Some school administrators say the guidance from the states put them in a difficult spot, for example, desks being six feet apart, where feasible parents who want their Children in school point to where feasible, But staff for parents who were concerned it's not safe are pointing to the six feet. Montgomery County Commissioner Dr Barker says she and the county's office of Public Health have made themselves accessible to school boards.

Miami-Dade County among Florida locations closing COVID-19 test sites because of tropical weather
"Bad news out of Florida for a third straight day. Florida has broken its own record for the number of corona virus deaths in a single day. Let's go to CNN's randy case joining us from West Palm Beach Randy. You're one of the testing sites that are not actually being closed down due due to an incoming storm that may hit Florida right now and the next day or so what's the latest? Right there watching this tropical storm Wolf that is brewing out there. So Florida has decided to close all state run testing sites throughout the state. I'm at one of them here in Palm Beach County in the county they are actually closing all eight state run testing sites. The one where we are at has served about thirty thousand people It's open five days a week they also do antibodies testing here, but earlier in the day. We were here and they were dismantling it. They were taking apart the tents and the polls and some of the cones that's because those would not be able to withstand those tropical storm force winds. But this is one of the hardest hit counties in the state. So certainly, some concern about closing these sites even further south of here in Miami Dade, they're closing thirteen sites in Miami Dade. County, that's the hardest county they still. Have A positivity rate there of about eighteen percent. So some concern still there and in Broward county another hard hit county here they are closing twelve site. So in all in these three hardest hit southern counties in southern Florida, they are closing thirty three state run testing

Oregon says federal agents to pull back from Portland
"A standoff between the Trump administration and local officials could be nearing an end. Governor Kate Brown announced today that the federal government will pull back law enforcement who have clashed violently with demonstrators there since early July. We'll hear from Governor Brown in another part of the program. The Department of Homeland Security, meanwhile, is presenting the deal a little differently. Oregon Public Broadcasting's Dirk Vander Hart joins me now from Portland. Welcome. Hey, thanks. So this agreement could help bring down tensions that have been mounting for weeks in your city. How is the governor even framing the deal at this moment? Yeah, She is really presenting this as a big win at this point. So for weeks, Governor Brown and other state officials have repeatedly demanded that the Trump Administration pullback federal officers But as you said, were sent here in early July, and under the deal announced today, Brown says At least some of those officers will begin to be phased out starting tomorrow in their place. She's sending Oregon State troopers who will act as security for this courthouse, which has really been a focal point of the protests. In her statement today, Brown said, the federal government essentially said the government has conceded to her demands. Okay, well, acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf has also been talking about this deal. Would you say that he agrees with Brown's characterization of it? Pretty pretty clearly not a wolf and other federal officials today have presented this as a win for their side, So their side is that they've been calling for local officials to protect the federal courthouse from vandalism or are small fires that some demonstrators have sent. And they suggest that you know those demands have been met because state troopers will be coming in to give that protection. But Wolf is also really downplaying this notion that federal officers are actually leaving the city like Brown says. Here's what he said in a press conference today. Our entire law enforcement presence that is currently in Portland yesterday in pre in the previous week, will remain importantly. Until we are assured that the courthouse And other federal facilities will no longer be attacked nightly. Instead of fire. There is obviously a little discord there in these two versions, and we're still looking for more details until what's behind them. I think what's likely impossible is that D H s officers will remain nearby may be in the area but will not actively be at the courthouse every night like they are now. We should note, though, that federal authorities who are normally assigned to protect the courthouse will still be present. Okay, so if the presence of federal officers does diminish how likely is that going to calm down the protesters? You think Well, I think state officials are certainly hoping it's very likely. These federal officers have drawn so much outrage. In recent weeks. People have been very, very focused on getting them out of the city. And so you know the senses. This should help calm things. I don't know that we can assume he's going to solve everything here. I mean, the question will be how state troopers actually respond to demonstrators gift things flare up again. Well, I mean, the country has been pretty focused on Portland recently, mainly because the president sent these federal law enforcement officials there in early July. But protests have been going on for a lot longer than that, for you know where you are. You just bring us up to speed on how things in Portland even got to this point. Well, that's right. Yeah, Actually, we are about two months into nightly protests for racial justice related to the killing of George Floyd. I mean, those have come in waves. So in late May, shortly after Floyd was killed, thousands of people were in the streets every night. That began toe Wayne by late June, when maybe around 100 people a night. We're coming out and clashing with police. But as I said, the federal presence here has really, really energized things. Dads and moms and vets air coming out. Today's deal is going to change things. I think we can say that we're just not exactly sure how
Federal government agrees to withdraw its officers from Portland, Gov. Brown announces
"On Twitter Governor Kate Brown said she'd been in talks with Vice President Mike Pence and other federal officials to remove the federal officers. They had reached an agreement that all officers with ice and customs and border protection would be leaving Portland starting Thursday.

Changing public opinion was an uphill battle, however, even serving potatoes to the KINK who suffered no ill effects wasn't enough. Permit years genius stroke was to make. People think they weren't allowed to have potatoes. He had his land filled with potato plots and hired guards to protect it. Guards who were instructed to turn a blind eye to all theft and accept any and all bribes so that the public would steal the potatoes and grow them on their own land. After a time Parmentier dismissed the. And as he expected, the locals raided the land and stole almost every potato plant growing there. By the following year, nearly every farmer in the region was growing their own potatoes. The potatoes, geographical and botanical cousin. The tomato fared better initially.

At the courthouse steps, he spoke to the crowd. To help dispel the toll tales and fantastic fables that you've been hearing and to prove to you that it is not poisonous I am going to eat one right now. There was not a sound as he dramatically brought the tomato to his lips and took a bite. A woman in the crowd screamed and fainted, but no one paid her any attention. They were all watching Johnson as he took one bite. After another, he raised both arms. The crowd cheered, and the firemen's band blared song. He's done it. They shouted. He's alive.

Meet Stagecoach Mary
"A No! That's what I'm saying like. The Postman only rang once. What. What Oh, oh, Hey, we're on! Hello, everybody! My name is Mick Sullivan and welcome to the past and the curious. This is episode number forty six, and we've done an episode about male done episode about trains, and we're kind of talking about both of those things again, but it's two completely new stories. One of the stories you're going to hear is about owning the dog. And I need to think friend of the show Michael. Fleming for his great reading on that one. The other store you're going to hear is about a woman who was generally known s stagecoach Mary, or at least that's how the history books remember her, but her real name was Mary Field and she was a very interesting person. Helping us with that episode. Doing a bit of dialogue is my friend Molly Victor from well. She's the creator of stoop kids, stories, which is an awesome podcast. Part of kids listen highly recommend. Check it out. Be sure to stick around for some songs at the end and patriotic shoutouts and a little bit of fun hiding out there promise. Let's get started. Robbers didn't scare fields. Wolves didn't scare her either. She had held her own against many even deadly cold weather was of little concern to her. Actually for that she had developed a little trick to stay warm and not freeze during these particularly perilous nights to keep her blood pumping, and your temperature up Mary would pace around her wagon all night long to keep from falling asleep. She figured if she did fall asleep in the cold, she might not wake up. A night without any sleep was definitely better than a morning. That never comes as you can see. Mary took her job seriously she had made an oath to the United States Postal Service and had become the very first black woman to have a postal contract and a carrying route with her wagon and team of horses she was responsible for hauling mail and freight through remote areas of Montana, meeting the train and cascade and navigating to Saint Peter's mission. This is how she earned her nickname stagecoach. Mary the fact is she didn't take that horsedrawn wagon to get mail and freight until she was well into adulthood. For most of her life, she wasn't stagecoach Mary at all, but instead Mary, fields. She had been born on a plantation in Tennessee around eighteen, thirty two was never sure about when her birthday was. Like the rest of her family Mary had been enslaved. Forced hard labor in the field was the fate of many enslaved men and women at this plantation. And Mary grew up to be a powerful young woman who worked beside the powerful men. She was tall over six feet by most accounts, and she had a broad, incredibly strong. Now, eighteen sixty five brought an enforceable end to enslavement in the United States, and while many emancipated men and women stayed near their families and friends. Mary immediately left Tennessee in search of work. She I found it on the river during Poker Games and bull sessions later in her life. She liked to tell the story of her job on a riverboat. The Robert E was a steamboat named after the confederate general on which Mary worked in eighteen seventy, there was a famous steamboat race down the Mississippi River from Saint Louis to New Orleans between her boat and another steamer called the NACHOS. Nearly, everything moved at a slower pace in the eighteen hundreds. So it might be hard for us to understand the excitement of a race travelling at an average of fourteen miles an hour and stretched out over several days. Wasn't a slow as molasses, but it wasn't far off. Nonetheless, Americans paid attention. The plotting pace of the race lent itself to the. Of the day, as the steamboats paddled in pushed their way down the river, small towns with Telegraph, the time, each vote passed by two newspapers, print and several daily editions. As exciting as it might have been to track the progress in the morning and evening editions of the newspaper. It was certainly more exciting to be at Mary Shoes, which were on deck or at sometimes below deck by the boiler of the League. She were called the crew feeding the boilers with anything. It would burn to keep the steam earning the paddle wheel. They ran out of wood for the fires. They'd stoke it with other things broken up furniture old clothes, even somebody's desk. What ever it took to win the race? She said to that end. They actually through a whole side of Bacon in the fire. That greasy smoke may have been the key. The League won the three day race by six hours not long after this through the connection of a passenger. Mary went north for a different, even slower paced work. She arrived in Toledo Ohio for the job. At the Ursuline Convent of the sacred heart she served as groundskeeper Gardner, and handled any other jobs for the community of nuns who lived there. In exchange, the nuns gave her a room board and a paycheck Mary definitely stuck out amongst the backdrop of Solomon religious ladies, sharing space nothing about the holy environment could stop Mary from yelling at them or anyone else. Who messed up her meticulously kept landscaping.

And the roads were pretty rough, but it gave me a really sound connection to my roots, and we didn't become strangest to tribal land and to our entities. So in that respect. We were very fortunate. That wasn't the case for many of my relations who? Lived and different eras around the country, and many moved over to Australia and been have been unable to reconnect. Yes so, that's that's that Christian. Beautiful and sorry sounds like it was a real priority and our real conscious choice feel family that, even though they might have been physically moving away from these tribal lands that really wanted to maintain that connection, and as a what astray leading girl I'm really love to hear more about like what that looks like in your family life.

"That was wolves from a brand new released by jumping Janey. Never mind the blocks. Here's jump Janey. You're listening to the children's hour and we have with us on the line. John Oak Leaf. He is the field projects coordinator for the Mexican Wolf Program at the US Fish and Wildlife Service. Thank you so much for being with us. On the children's hour how many wolf reintroduction programs are there in the US and Canada right now? So I think of three four that are going ongoing or completed and so the active Wolf Reduction Program where you're actually putting wolves on the ground. There's the Mexican Wolf Program here in the southwest. There's a Red Wolf program which is in the South East on North Carolina area. And then there's Active reintroduction that's going on Isle Royale which is up in Michigan where they're trying to recolonize wolves on the island and then there's the famous rear induction programs that they aren't really putting wolves out any more at that the yellowstone and Idaho which I worked on a little while when we talk about these programs. How many wolves are we talking about? That are in these programs. I mean how many do you put into the wild and Wendy? You know that your success fall for the northern rockies and for the Mexican wolves we had recovery plans and so recovery plans to give you a road map to where when you're successful your actions so for the northern rockies. They called for ten breeding pairs in three populations scattered across the northern Rockies. Be and so they did releases for two years and then natural. Reproduction took over and that Cosmos the growth from there pretty quick reintroduction down here on the Mexican Wolf Project We're calling for three hundred twenty wolves over eight years and then the Mexican wolves were almost gone extinct from the wild so we had to start with a captive program captive breeding program that required to build up captive stock and then release them. And we're at about a hundred and sixty today And were mainly focused. Not on growing the population with our releases but improving the genetic stock. So there was seven animals when we got the last Mexican moles seven wolves in total in the whole world. That's all that was left of the Mexican wealth so this is back in the late seventies early eighties. At that time the Endangered Species Act just came nineteen seventy four and so the fish and Wildlife Service. Sanada trapper down to Mexico to trap some of the last remnant wolves and he got some wolves and there was a few samples in captivity. That were there that proved to be your Mexican wolves and so we had a founding stock seven and even the ones that he had caught down in Mexico. Those wolves disappeared and were largely gone by the early nineties. Every gone what happened from there is are zoos and our capital partners. Build up this population so they build up three hundred plus wolves today so that you could release wolves into the wild and still have the genetics staw in captivity where that wouldn't positive to go extinct by the risks in the wild we built from seven was a great success by our captive partners in the zoos and bill from seven to one hundred fifty in ninety eight we start releasing Mexican wolves since the while. Today were focused on the genetics. Getting diversity out there out in the wild and so what we do is we but young pops less than ten days old from captivity in two wild dance so we figured out where the wild will thin is. And put these young outs. And and wild dens it's called cross fostering and then those buffs are raised by their act and a raised like wild wolves and then they incorporate. This doesn't genetics into the population. How do you convince local ranchers and farmers that it's okay to have wolves be reintroduced because it seems to me like maybe those are some of the people who be the most resistant because they'd be worried that the wolves would may be killed or sheep or cows? And I I guess I don't try to convince them because wolves are a lot about how you see the world and so certain people stealing as as citizens of the of wilderness and and kind of showing than. It's a wild area in a wild place and they very much appreciate the how wolf in the wild and then other people they're more Utilitarian or out there on the landscape there actually working on that landscape and they make their living on that landscape and so those folks tend to be more concerned about the presence of wolves and they have to live with them and and there's economic impacts their business. So what I do try to do is work with the ranch. Our shared goal is none of us. Want depredations on live stuff. What do you mean depredations So when Wolves Jill livestock something that people own. It's considered a depredation. Something that person owns we're talking with John Oakley from the US Fish and Wildlife Service about wolves. He's the field projects coordinator for the Mexican Wolf Program. We're GONNA come right back and talk more with John Oak Leaf right after a break. You're listening to public radio.

"The other animals came back as well because they were eating all the elk and deer where they had many many of them because nobody else was eating them before and so they also started being more aware of the wolves and now started moving around more and so more vegetation started growing because they were eating everything which meant more songbirds came in and they will also driving away the coyotes so they were more bunnies and more other animals so the whole ecosystem changed in Yellowstone National Park. When the Wolf's came back and all the other animals came back as well so they are very very important a players in the ecosystem. One might say they weren't only in. North America they were also All over Europe in the Northern Hemisphere. And the coming back in certain areas to their old stomping grounds so to speak what other kinds of keystone predators are there. Do they all work in a similar way to wolves yes they work in similar ways to wolves and they're very important eating the old sake and week? Wa avalon's of a herd of deer and elk for example or taking out there little animals and evading diseases because where the Wolf Sargon for example there's more chronic wasting disease among the deer. What's a chronic wasting disease? It's a disease among deer when they are in one place together. See The wolves. They are keeping the herds of deer and elk moving because they always have to look over their shoulder and see if there's any wolf's around and he can't just hang around and they break up in little bands like for example the the females and does and the their offspring for example then never together in huge herds but humans often put them in enclosures or put them together and in huge herds for the hunters and a feeding them at in villa situations. When there aren't any wolf's around there is a lot disease because they're giving it to each other. It's kind of like right now. We have to stay away from each other to not pass on the virus to each other. It's the same with the an elk when there's too many of them and one of them is sick and the wolves not taking out the old sick and weak ones of a herd of deer elk. Then they'll pass it onto each other and a whole hurt is compromised by that. We have found that in New Mexico as well in northern New Mexico within L. Kurt for example. What can you do to stop this disease? The best way is to bring the walks back because they will. They're the ones that That can eat kill and deere for example. That is sick. They are the only ones because they walls that way. And when they were looking at wolf skills in yellowstone national.

Tell us about that experience. It was during a time when I began to question my role in life. Those teenage years where You're beginning to rebel and figure out your own identity and Where you WanNa go with your life and it just sort of woke me up and so I was thrown off my horse when I was getting ready to compete and I was knocked unconscious. And there's this whole segment of my life that I can't recall and during that time I had this experience where I was out of my body looking down at my body in the hospital bed and feeling just this incredible piece and seeing the beauty around me in this sort of alternate reality and after I had that experience things really changed for me and it was during that time that I started noticing more.

This was an opportunity to go on an adventure and do something other than what were sort of programmed to do which is go to school. Get a degree get a job. Enter into the workforce and at that time that wasn't my passions were not being ignited So I was looking for a way for my passions to be ignited and also just to figure out what was out there in the world and it was a very rebellious thing to do and I hope my kids never do that but it showed me a lot of things that were not very positive it could have been really detrimental to my to my future and I'm just thankful I must have had some someone watching over me that I made it safe through putting myself into dangerous situations. I mean I feel very comfortable putting myself in to survival experiences in nature and other things in nature however when it comes to humans I have lost. My trust sounded really exciting.

There's so many young adults out there. Teenagers that go down a really dark path and they their form of rebellion might be sex or drugs and I wanted to share that.

"Number ten was one of fourteen wolves brought from Alberta Canada down to yellowstone in January of Nineteen ninety-five. The wolves were brought into the park. In what was called the wolf reintroduction project it was intended to correct a decision made at the beginning of the twentieth century not long after yellowstone was set. Aside as the country's first National Park Wolves had been naturally present when the Yellowstone National Park Protection Act was passed the Act said that the land is quote set apart as a pleasure in ground for the benefit and enjoyment of the people and back in the early nineteen hundreds. The people as the story goes didn't like wool. There were considered to be good and bad animals. I've never quite understood it. You can easily imagine that. For example rattlesnake is a bad animal. A lot of people still think so. Most predators are considered bad because the big beautiful elk with its magnificent antlers are. The Moose are the delicate little deer. Those were good animals there and then there were the fuzzy little ones that you look like. They looked like you can put him on your lap like a possum more raccoon. Those were good animals elk. Were Good Will. Were bad or that you know. Centuries old animus against the wall wall as a representation of evil and so they were killed and killed and killed yellowstone. Park Rangers were given rifles and instructed to kill wolves. Non Rangers were offered bounties for killing them in Montana in nineteen o seven. The government would pay you ten dollars per wolf. This wasn't just happening in yellowstone in nineteen o seven alone. Eighteen hundred wolves were killed a national force and parks across the country according to the National Park Service by the mid nineteen hundreds Wolf's had been almost entirely eliminated from the forty eight states the impact. The ecosystem was immediate. Thomas McNamee says that in yellowstone the ELK population exploded the vegetation. They needed to survive. Couldn't keep up until you were having starving. Elk and vegetation beat down and beat down the grasses beat pieces and in one thousand nine hundred forty seven a famous naturalist leopold recognized that the yellowstone ecosystem was missing its Keystone Predator and he began to write and talk about the need for restoration the Yellowstone Wolf Aldo Leopold wrote I myself cooperated in the extermination of the wolf because I then believed it was a benefit. I do not propose to repeat my error. Over the next few decades the discussion of bringing wolves back to yellowstone went through a lot of twists and turns in one thousand nine hundred seventy three. The Endangered Species Act was passed and the following year. Grey Wolves were listed as endangered the Endangered Species Act mandated that gray wolves be restored to their native habitats including yellowstone well of course yellowstone is surrounded by ranch lands and the ranchers went bananas all they pitcher was wolves roaring into their herds and laying waste to their living even though it would have been shown in other parts of the world that will greatly prefer wild prey and really liked to stay away from people that they just didn't believe that the battle between ranchers and conservationists was incredibly heated the were countless hearings more than seven hundred people testified and one hundred sixty thousand written comments were submitted in the end. The conservationists one wolves would be brought back to yellowstone in nineteen ninety five. Fourteen wolves were trapped Alberta Canada and transported by plane. They were initially placed in large. Outdoor acclamation pens. Here's wildlife biologist. Joe Fontaine. I've been a wildlife biologist for the federal government for thirty three years and Eighteen of those years I spent as deputy Wolf Recovery Coordinator for the US Fish and Wildlife Service when the wolves were first brought to yellowstone. And we're in their acclamation pens. Weren't there armed guards. There were guards that were were stationed in different places. They were in what they call hides they could get in and not be seen and because thought was there might be somebody crazy enough to go in and try to kill the wolves whether in the pin and young people had access to the park. The people you know. Did you know that was just people driving through or whatever but you never know what somebody's going to do and so there was a lot of temerity about what the heck to do with that so the other we had law enforcement guys up there all the time. Why was there such a great fear? Well you know during a lot of the public meetings we get people saying we're GONNA kill everyone of them. We're GONNA do them. All hand will poison them. There is a real rhetoric of the from the antiwar people. It was coming out that the only wolf is dead wolf and I'll shoot everyone and the shoot shovel and shut up mentality. If you will and so being that this was something new and different. That never ever been done before. He don't WanNa take chances. You WanNa make sure that everything is safe and ready to go. People have very strong feelings about wolves. This is true That's kind of an understatement. Actually sell the wolves are unique in the fact that you know. They travel as a pack of family unit. Aunts and uncles. They take care of each other very well. They're very good parents. There are actually out there to do a job which the become in my mind like Shepard of flocks that are out there whether it be elk or deer Moose whatever and their job is solely as a Predator to remove part of the animal population. That's out there. Show that what they feed on more abundant because divorce animals. You have the more. It's craze down. It affects everything in that ecosystem so even though.

Joe Fontana and his colleagues hope that the wolves brought from Canada would stay in the park. Stay safe from people and acclimate so yellowstone could slowly be repopulated to its natural state. The fear was that because wolves have a homing instinct they would just head. North backed Alberta which appeared to be. Exactly what nine and ten were trying to do. When tens tracking collar began to omit the mortality signal federal agents and local law enforcement searched for wolf ten into almost midnight when they lost ten signal. They called it a night and went home very early. The next morning everyone convened again to continue the search on foot by car and by airplane they were able to track wolf nine from the air and see that she was staying in the same place. Everyone assumed that she had dug a den to prepare to give birth wolf. Tens Mortality Signal was going in and out and they try to valley called Bear Creek.

"To stories. About the same family of wolves in yellowstone one is a crime story and the other is a love story for the love story. Check out episode nineteen of our other show. This is love. We've got a link in the show notes. Here's the crime story. In April of nineteen ninety five. A man named Mike Phillips was in a small airplane flying over Yellowstone National Park. He was the leader of the Yellowstone Wolf Project. Then he was looking for to wolves that have decided to head north. They were identified by numbers. Nine and ten wolf nine was big with black for that. People said Look Gray. In certain light ten was her mate. Ten was absolutely enormous. A hundred and twenty two pounds white with gigantic pause. Raider Thomas McNamee Says Wolf. Ten was the very definition of an Alpha male. When you go into a gift shop and you buy a stuffed wolf that great. He looked like one of those nine and ten more research callers the transmitted signals wildlife biologist. Use these to track the wolves when they started heading north very track from the first day and they find them up on the bear to Flato and for five days they just don't move. Just sit there. And then did he storms. Start to blow in day after day after day. These howling snowstorms and they can't fly so they can't track nine and ten and finally there's a break in the storms and they find him at a place called franchise meadow which is way far north. The wolves had left the park the wildlife. Biologists were terrified only two months into their first attempt to reestablish the wolf population in Yellowstone and the success of the plan depended not only on the wolves staying in the park but also reproducing nine was pregnant and her pups would be the first wolves born in yellowstone in more than sixty years but nine and ten were gone and still heading north through an area with very little pray and if they got through that alive the biologists knew that the wolves would then be surrounded by cattle ranches in one thousand nine hundred five. It was illegal to shoot a wolf in Montana. But a rancher could shoot a wolf was attacking their livestock. There is nothing the biologists could do. They felt helpless. Just watching the wolves move north. They can't land and try to chase them south. They just hope that they're going to figure out that they're in a bad place and go back south but no April twelve thirteen fourteen. Fifteen sixteen seventy storms and. I can't fly home. And so they don't know where the wolves are one of the Yellowstone Wolf Biologists Doug Smith got into a small plane on April twentieth and went searching for nine and ten. He can't find the wolves they're they're just calling and that's implausible because we'll don't just disappear the next day an agent from the Montana Department of fish wildlife and parks called. Wolf tracks have been spotted outside a town called red launch. So they think okay we've got get two planes and we're GONNA fly a much wider area and see where the hell they've gone but they really. Spring storms are just horrendous. And they can't fly can't fly and fly on April twenty-sixth Doug Smith is in the air and detects a clear signal from nine scholar years. Nine quite clearly but ten signal is fate an indistinct and he can't figure out where it is and then just a minute. He has quite clearly and it's going beep beep beep which when an animal doesn't move for a long time it's a bad sign. Because even at their sleep they move around a little bit of the regular signals. I'm beep beep and when it goes beep beep. Bbb that means they're not moving at all and skuld mortality mode so he knows immediately that tennis debt as Thomas McNamee Puts It all hell broke loose federal agents from all over converged not only to find wolf ten but also to find the person who killed him. I'm phoebe judge.

They're all making their way across some rolling around in the snow though eight nine. Ten a grey one. I eleven twelve thirteen fourteen. Fifteen fifteen moles. There's more wow. After a busy morning of rushing around we finally found the right spot and everyone finally state still. There were probably twenty people in the group by now. Jeff made hot chocolate for everyone. In his winnebago. It really is a community. A lot of these people have been watching wolves together like this for decades. We were watching. What's called the junction Butte Pack? I was amazed how much rick seemed to know about. Every single wolf in the pack knows a lot about all the wolves in yellowstone and the wolves the came before them because he comes out like this and watches and takes notes for hours. At a time there's one wolf in particular that is fascinated him from the beginning. A small wolf ate wolf ate was one of the original fourteen brought. In during the reintroduction in Nineteen ninety-five he was brought in as a pup. Just a few months old and his whole family was put an acclamation pen about an acre in size and while they were still in that acclamation pen. Park Rangers began to notice that one of the wolves was much smaller than his brothers. The run he was chased around and teamed up on. He was always the last one to eat when the pack was released from acclimation pen wolf ate was about a year. Old everyone monitored this reintroduction very closely and Rick says that the park Rangers were kind of rooting for Wolf Ate. It wasn't going to have it easy and then one day. Rick was observing wolf. Ate Out with two of his brothers. They ran behind trees and when they reappeared. One of the brothers was carrying an elk calf in its jaws but right behind was grizzly bear chasing them. It was the Grizzly Bears L. CALF. The brothers had stolen from him in because it was the slowest. Wolf. He was last in line. Which meant that? The bear was gaining on him. And just as about the bail was to catch up with eight. He stopped and turned around and confronted the bear. He stood between the bear and two brothers and The bear was just several times. The size of the little will but the beer didn't know what to make of this guy and the beer just gave up just turned around and went the other direction but I was the only one that saw. What eight did that is? Two brothers had run off with the Cath and when he finally caught up with them. Not only did they not know that he had saved them from the bear but they didn't share the calf with. That was when I really begin to understand that there was way more than just being the runt of the litter rick watched as eight continued to get beaten up by his brothers pin down his food. Taken away any began to notice that eight was spending more and more time wandering around by himself. Meanwhile one of the other packs of wolves that have been brought from Canada the Roost Creek pack was expecting a litter of pups. The mother was known as Wolf. Nine and the father was called Wolf Ten. He was enormous in on the very day that she had her pops which should have been a time of great celebration and yellowstone. They would have been the first wolf pups born in Yellowstone. Sixty-nine years on that day the Father Wolf was illegally shot and killed. That meant that number nine was a single mother with no help and alliterative eight puffs. That's a very large litter. There was virtually no way that she could enable those popstar survive very young pups have no ability to keep themselves warm to regulate their temperature. So the mother Wolf has to be in the den with them so they can cuddle up next to her and absorb the her body warmth if she was leave the den for too long. When she got back they could've died of hypothermia. She was an impossible situation. She couldn't really leave the pops. They would likely die if she did. But if she didn't leave them she would have no food to support your milk. Production and they would die of malnutrition so normally the park. Service does not intervene in a situation with wild animals. But because a bad guy had killed the father wolf and that family represented forty three percent of the yellowstone will population at the time. They decided to make an exception. So the captured the mother in the POPs in the plan was to put them back in the Rose Creek Penn where she had originally gotten pregnant and keep him in there for six months and then released them they would be about the age of human children six seven years old something like that meaning that they still would know nothing of hunting so the mother. Wolf would still have plenty of problems but at least she would have a chance of keeping them alive if she was good enough hunter. Maybe they could survive. Here's what Rick Things probably happen. Next Wolf ate was spending most of his time wandering around alone trying to get away from his bully. Brothers it was easier being by himself. He'd likely heard the Rose Creek Wolf pups hallway and eventually got curious enough to go see what was going on. We think that one point came around and turn in the in the ravine and saw something that he had never seen before in life he saw the first two hops to come out of the den and the process of being released and for him every day of his life he was always the smallest wolf and so he had no conception that there was out there were smaller than he was so He ran over and befriended those pups so we played with them. Share some food and whether he realized it or not he was being watched by the mother Wolf. He wasn't the ideal candidate to be here. New Alpha male. He had a lot of things going against them including his his size and his inexperience in youth but he was acting benevolently to her pops and essentially she invited him into her family to be their new. Alpha male eight essentially adopt raise those pops like they were his own. So if you came along after there'd be no way that you could tell the difference between him being the adopted father and biological father so pretty much eight in in the course of day had gone from being this underappreciated run to the family to having his own family with a number of children he could forget about what had happened to him when he was growing up yes he was and day not only had wolf ate never seen wolves smaller than him but the wolf pups he was now raising as his own had never seen an adult male wolf before they didn't know eight with small one of the wolf pups eight was raising was called. Wolf. Twenty one and twenty one would grow up to be very big and very strong even bigger than his biological father but he learned everything about how to be from eight wreck says the two were inseparable. They perfected technique of hunting. Were there are very successful. The operate as a team kind of like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid and then they would come back to the Dan in their mother and the new POPs and bring food to them so wolves. A big male can swallow about twenty pounds and then when they come home. They can regurgitate that. They bring it up to the pops they can also carry me but it's more efficient to do it internally when the pups e either eight or twenty-one come in they have an instinct to run over to them and they will lick their muzzle and that triggers the regurgitation. And I say that because when a modern dog sees its human friend coming along the dog wants to lick the face of the of the human and that's a remnant of that behavior from their wild ancestors so that's what it really means. They want you to give you twenty pounds of neat that you just did it the restaurant. It wasn't long before. Twenty-one grew so big that he was much larger than eight. He was a better hunter. He was faster he was stronger but he was always willing to be subordinate to the wolf. That raised him. Twenty-one watched eight defend the packers territory against the Alpha male of another pack the Druid Wolves..

"Now we know dogs and wolves have a lot in common women and that leads us to this question. Hi My name is Maya and I'm six and a half years old. My question is why do we have dogs as pets but not wolf's quaffs ourselves dogs in Fox's Fox are so dogs so why not have them as pets. My name is Leila. I live in Brussels Belgium and my question is how dogs evolved from wolves here to help us answer these. This question is bridget von Fault. She's an evolutionary biologist at Princeton University. Welcome Bridget Hi. Thank you for inviting me. Touted dogs evolved awesome Wolf's. This is a really complex change to go from a wild animal to being domestic dog that we have in in our lives and in in our homes so this process happened over thousands of years and really what happened is that people originally formed this relationship relationship miscommunication with wild wolves. We suspect that this had a lot to do with how they hunted. That early on as humans were still hunting and gathering food that way that there was this relationship and maybe communication with the local wolf pack where they were also doing the same hunting being and gathering a food resources. That transition took thousands of years. This was a really long process early. Dogs we're really rather what they were are. Wolves are living closer and closer to human settlements so some hypotheses say hey that these wolves were living closer to our trash dumps where we would put empty carcasses or any other food waste we had and eventually as he's wolves reliving closer and closer to people they had to be more tolerant of people's presence ultimately the idea. Is that these wild wolves were adjusting to human presence. And we're living in and among the villages so often dogs even early Leeann domestication were just living with people but not necessarily inside a house and being restrained on a leash or harness. Why can we have dogs pets? But Not Wolves as my original question. Wildlife are unpredictable. They're not tame they don't live even a house. It's hard to train them so most of the reasons why we shouldn't have a wolf as a pet is because it's for the health of the animal and and it's not easy to handle them through that domestication. We've turned these wolves into dogs that way. We actually have this little the animal that we are very closely bonded to and they rely very heavily upon us for everything from food to shelter in companionship. Chip how did this like one. Species of of wolves trenches shown many different breeds of dogs and like types of dogs. Just like is that like hume doing or is that natural. That is such a good question. this ends up being a combination of both both to give maybe a little example of the natural side of this. If you look at maybe a litter of puppies and they all come from the same mom and Dad. Sometimes some of the puppies might have brown for others might have little splashy colors. Another one might be white with bigger black patches on them but they all come from the same two parents so the natural part of all of this variation Shen dogs that we see is because every individual has a slightly different set of genes so now if we talk about how all people became involved in that if we imagine that we were a dog breeder and we wanted to maybe create a brand new type of dog and and we saw something interesting. One of the puppies was maybe this unique color that we'd never seen before we would really want us that dog when it grew up to have more puppies in hopes that it would have more like it and as we started doing that a lot we found that humans could create create lots of differences between animals from tiny little teacup dogs to these giant. You Know Great Danes. It's quite light incredible. Wow thank you so much for being here today. Brigitte thank you bye. Thank six by canines and people have a special no relationship.

"Been expecting wolves to show up personally, I was not surprised at all and wildlife ecologist. They had been predicting this several years before it happened. But why, why did the Walser turn well in the last decades of the twentieth century, there was a shifting attitudes towards notice walls, but large carnivores, leg Lynch Brown bear wolverine, as well. And I think that the story folder species have been that as soon as we stop killing them the population will increase again and they will also recover and they will also reoccupied former habitats where they have been extinct for centuries. In addition to that. The prey base has also rebounded since two hundred years ago, probably nowadays in most western European countries are problems of controlling deer populations. They are getting overabundant so that alter means that there are plenty of food for worst. It's the opposite of what was happening in the late eighteenth century legislative protection abundant food. And the wolf populations bounce back so much so that by the two thousand wild wolf pups were born in Germany, for the first time in over one hundred years, and in two thousand seven we had the first wolf that was observed inch list, we call Stein, that is the German federal states that is just south of Denmark, and after that, there were several other individuals that have been observed near Hamburg, which is just about three hundred kilometers from Danish border. So from a biological point of view, it was just a matter of time before the first specimen shoot appear in Denmark, and appear. They did from October twenty twelve when those Birdwatchers caught a glimpse of the war in the first years, we had single individuals, and they were all made, and that is also a quiet normal pattern when you see population expansion, it's often young males that you see, I, but to move beyond the lone wolf and to establish a new Danish pack you need. A young female and the first female appeared in two thousand sixteen and at the same time she emerged together with an you made also and over the winter, we will more more certain that we had a pair, we could see that from wildlife camera traps, that we brought up in the area, then from that we caught photos at recordings of tools that worked together, and then they reproduce the year after that means in two thousand seventeen so within six months, eight months after they had stashed they reproduced for the first time. And it was very young individuals at least mail was not more than two years old when he reproduced for first time, which ought to indicate that they do that, simply because they had ended in an area where there was so much natural prey from a film recording. We know that they had eight pups at that time, and during autumn, we could see also from field, recordings from trade camp photos that that was at least six of them left, that is also the number of DNA profiles that we have been able to. Identify so far with all his talk day. And a you might be wondering how you get a sample from alive. Wolf Scholley, not taking a math swab well, in fact, we do, but indirectly if the kill prey, and you find the carcass, when it's fresh in when we say, fresh, it's typically within twenty four hours, then from the bite marks you can extract, saliva from the tooth marks. So, in fact, that is some swaps that we're using but not on the wolf in itself, part on the pray that been slain. The other way is through their PU so that just means that you have to find escape. That is Disney fresh in a territory. That's quite easy because they're using this cat's territory, Mark. So what you have to do that is just to patrol the forest Roach, and then statistically, you should expect one scat for every five kilometer. So, so why you have an established pair? That's quite easy to get that kind of gets when. You have stray individuals or migrating individual. Of course that much harder because they are list, local, and even when they are resident, they typically room much larger areas that might be more than thousand square kilometers. So it's much harder to find sketch about sometimes they do, send mocks because that's their way of communicating with any other potential wolves in the area. So, but marks and Phut.
