Changing Public Attitudes About Wolves

  • Date(s): Tuesday, October 15th 2013
  • Time: 6:30 p.m.
  • Location: Niobrara County Library

Join Wyoming author Cat Urbigkit for a discussion of changing public attitudes about wolves. The program will be presented at the Niobrara County Library on Tuesday, October 15, 2013 at 6:30 p.m.

Drawing heavily on the first few chapters of her book, “Yellowstone Wolves: A Chronicle of the Animal, the People, and the Politics,” Cat will lead the audience through an examination of public attitudes about wolves relying on published literature; debunking the myth of Little Red Riding Hood’s influence by demonstrating how human interactions with wolves determine public attitudes.

Historic accounts from different eras of western development will be discussed as well as the views expressed in those accounts. Discussion of the ever-evolving public attitudes about wolves, and about events and activities that influence those attitudes will also be examined.

Copies of Yellowstone Wolves will be available for purchase and signing after the discussion.
