Does Killing Wolves Make Sense?

Wolves are  (next to man) the top predator in America. Once nearly killed off, with great effort they’ve been reintroduced. Now, that they’re succeeding, some are seeking to kill them. Perhaps, my lack of understanding simply occurs because I don’t live where wolves do. It’s odd to me that (rightly so) most Americans are opposed…
