Abstract

My paper explores wolf politics in Oregon from 1843 to the present. I examine the motivations for various wolf control and protection laws throughout Oregon’s history and consider the impact of these laws on landscapes and communities, particularly on those communities in opposition to the established laws. A major theme of my study looks at the connection between the ideas of conquering nature through the control over the wolf, an animal that has prowled the human imagination.
