The goal of the Wildlands Project is to re-wild over 50% of the United States back to the condition it was before Christopher Columbus arrived in America. That will require moving a lot of citizens off of the rural lands. One of the strategies used to clear the land of man is to re-introduce the large carnivore.
In 1998 the Mexican Wolf was reintroduced to the Southwest. In the last 15 years in Catron County, New Mexico the wolf population and the size of its hunting territory has expanded greatly to the point that pets and children are no longer safe outside of their homes. Children are now expected to somehow safely get to their bus stop, and once there wait inside cages for their bus to arrive in order to not be attacked by wolves. This is a true glimpse into the sustainable development future where man is caged and the animals roam free-not to mention a really creepy way for six year olds to begin and end their school day. link
