Letters from the Front Line:Christopher: Yes, the whole “ice bridge will save them” logic didn’t really work out. The wolf went the other way, off the island, and promptly died.Jennifer: The difference is that cows (and horses) have a different fertility cycle than dogs (or cats). Probably has something to do with only having, usually, one offspring and a long gestation period. They can remain remarkably...Jen Robinson: Sorry for going off topic . . .well, it it does relate to inbreeding Looks like all the cold weather may give a lifeline to the Isle Royale wolves . . . or may be dealing the populaiton a final blow....Lia: You’re right Jennifer.

Life is made up of minor and major embarassments, and children and animals are often the vehicles for them; in the end,...retrieverman: Questions: 1. How many species of zebra are there? 2. Can they all interbreed and produce fertile offspring? I think that will show why there isn’t a lot of merit to what you’re saying at all.
