What societal problem or problems have you identified while researching your topic?

Once the target amount of harvest has been met wolves are taken off the list.

What are the causes of this problem? Was it intentional? Are there extenuating circumstances?

The target harvest number being to low
not raising the target harvest number
waiting to have a hunt to get the numbers up
putting a limit on ow many you can trap or hunt
It is intentional and there are circumstances that could be bad in the end

What can we do about it? Is there any action that can be taken to change this? What action has been already attempted to address this problem? Why wasn't it successful?

Yes the target harvest number should be raised. To wait for the number to get back up but have a hunt right away. It wasn't successful because the wolf population keeps going down. They need to rise the target harvest number.

  • In what ways is this thesis and topic challenging (p.108)?

What is going through the DNRs head when they are setting the target harvest number. Do they think the number needs to be increased? Do they think they have a good system?

  • How is this thesis and topic compelling (p.108)?

Is there pan actually helping the wolf population? It must not because they are on the list yet again.

  • In what ways is this thesis and topic debatable or controversial (p. 109)?

People may think that the target harvest number needs to be greater. Is there system really working?

Thesis: The wolf population is threatened and it's because the target harvest number is to low.

  • What lead up to the problem.

Over hunting of the wolves and needing to put a ban oh hunting them.
The target harvest number being to low and not getting the population back to what it should be.
They may not give out as many permits with the lower target number.
