Season 27, Episode 4 The Wolf That Changed America
First Aired: November 23, 2008
The story of how the interaction between a wolf, Lobo, and naturalist Ernest Thompson Seton (1860-1946) helped lead to the national park system and the creation of the Boy Scouts of America. Archival footage and reenactments drawn from Seton's writings detail how, in 1893, Seton set out to kill the leader of a wolf clan in New Mexico. The experience led him to promote hunting restrictions and anti-poaching measures, advocate for a national-park system and, eventually, help found the Boy Scouts.
