Sample text

Local opposition was strong and vocal. Nearby residents worried that wolves would kill their domestic animals and perhaps cause injury to humans. Ranchers and hunters expressed concern that a top predator such as the wolf would reduce cattle, sheep, deer, and bison populations and travel outside the boundaries of the park. In the spring of 2001, the Great Falls Tribune (Great Falls, Montana) ran a front page story about the Interagency Annual Wolf Report. According to the report, the wolf population is reaching recovery level (30 breeding pairs).

The skin on the head, armpits, groin, hands, and feet has more microscopic organisms than on other places on the body. Bacteria, fungi, and mites form the commensal flora and fauna on the skin. The fungi Malassezia furfur and Candida albicans are found on the skin of some individuals. All humans can act as hosts to skin mites such as Demodex folliculorum and Demonex brevis. It is thought that a large majority of the human population acts as hosts to these mites. These microscopic animals survive on a diet of dead epithelial (skin) cells and sebum, an oil excreted by hair follicles and other skin glands.

Demographic shifts and population growth have encouraged people to live in areas once populated by wild animals. These habitats are increasingly affected by human-imposed changes including roads, new uses for private and public lands, and the environmental demands associated with agricultural and urban life. Species such as wolves, mountain lions, polar bears, and the northern spotted owl do not recognize these artificial restrictions on their habitats and have thus come into direct conflict with human beings and their way of life.
