This book compiles over 50 years of research on the history of Russian wolves to challenge North American notions about the nature of these controversial animals. It contends that populations and densities of wolves are best controlled by human intervention. The author establishes that wolves prey on healthy, well fed animals not simply on weak, crippled, or diseased ones and engage in surplus killing. Moreover, wide-ranging wolves spread parasites and diseases to game and domestic animals; some of these diseases and parasites also endanger humans.

Wolves in Russia will ignite a lively discussion in North America about how the Russian experiences with wolves should bear upon current wolf conservation and protection policies.
