Nearly two decades after the wolf reintroduction to the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem, communities in Wyoming continue to struggle with the social and biological repercussions of wolf management. Despite differences in views and attitudes toward wolves, Shoshones and Arapahos on the Wind River Reservation and ranchers in the Upper Green River Valley experience a similar sense of value deprivation through the wolf management process. This vital social process is largely overlooked by officials, scientists, and managers. Building more inclusive, fair, effective, and timely processes for carnivore management is essential to mitigating ongoing legal and social conflicts over contentious species.
