    Description

    This paper examines the arguments employed in the debate over reintroduction of wolves into Idaho, Montana, and the Yellowstone National Park Ecosystem; and in Arizona and New Mexico. The study reviews common rhetorical themes used by advocates and opponents of wolf reintroduction and identifies a significant rhetorical shift in the debate. Advocates opposed to wolf reintroduction have turned to scientific appeals in their efforts to shift public opinion; on the other hand, proponents of reintroduction increasingly use aesthetic arguments and personal narratives in their public discourse.
