Hang around progressive-thinking conservationists in Pennsylvania long enough and invariably the discussion turns to the big what-ifs: What if mountain lions (cougars? panthers? catamounts?) and wolves (timber wolf? red wolf? gray wolf?) could again find a home here?
There’s an apparently on-going discussion about wolves taking place here.
And for the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s standard response regarding such reintroductions, read this. In short, the wildlife agency doesn’t like the idea at all. But then the agency also has a longstanding antipathy to the word “wilderness,” especially when applied to one or more of its own “game lands.”
