Gray Wolves stand on the edge of a precipice. Wild wolf populations across the Northern U.S. have rebounded to healthy, sustainable levels with the protection of the Endangered Species Act. Wolf advocates declare it a biological and political victory. But many ranchers call it a crime, demanding the wolves' immediate eradication... and they may just get their wish. Widespread hunting seasons have already opened in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming, with the rest of the country potentially following suit as we debate delisting all wolves in the U.S. Whether you see the wolf as the majestic cousin of man's best friend, or as a bloodthirsty devil bent on destruction, we all have a visceral reaction to these misunderstood animals. "A Wolf's Place" takes a close look at how wolves have impacted the ecosystem since their reintroduction to Yellowstone 18 years ago, and the effect the recent hunting season have had on the park's wolves. It also tells the personal story of Wolf #10, the first wild wolf released into Yellowstone in over 70 years -- his triumphant life and his tragic death in the sights of a poacher's gun. Produced by Annie White.
