John Dorsett is a wildlife biologist, formerly with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, now based in Athens, Texas. Here he tells about red wolves' historic decline due to overhunting, bounties, habitat loss, and hybridization with coyotes, and remembers his part in the late 1970s to trap out the last of the red wolves in coastal Texas and Louisiana, to help build a group for captive breeding and eventual release back into the wild.
