Where Do the Wolves Roam?

This is not an awful question that someone should immediately make fun of. The reintroduction of wolves is a bit of a pipe dream for American society right now. Introducing wolves into Northern Virginia? Please. The uproar over such a thing would cause a miniature arms race. Virtually everyone with a backyard would freak out and purchase a high-powered hunting rifle.

The map I've shown you above gives you much of the history of these efforts. The wolf has never been eradicated from Northern Minnesota but I cannot see how it could safely be reintroduced into the Eastern United States without driving millions into a ridiculous panic.
