Dr. Edwin D. Michael, Professor Emeritus, WVU, will present a program on West Virginia timber wolves and mountain lions. Dr. Michael recently published a book “The Last Appalachian Wolf” and, while conducting research for this historical novel, he discovered several interesting historical accounts of timber wolves in West Virginia. Also, Dr. Michael recently wrote the After- word for a book “West Virginia Mountain Lions” and while researching recent history of mountain lions in North America he dis- covered numerous events pertinent to the future of these large predators in West Virginia.
Dr. Michael will discuss the recent urbanization of large predators and examine the likelihood of wolves and mountain lions becoming reestablished in West Virginia. He will invite the audience to evaluate the benefits and problems associated with such reestablishments.
