Natural World - Lobo - The Wolf that Changed America 8pm BBC 2 - TONIGHT

Lobo - The wolf that changed America Wed 2 Apr 8.00pm BBC Two

Ernest Thompson Seton's account of how he hunted a cattle-killing wolf became a pivotal part of American history, helping to change the way people see wolves and the wilderness. In his efforts to find, capture, and kill Lobo, Seton came to understand the animal's intelligence, loyalty and warmth. Although he finally succeeded in his task, he never killed a wolf again. A combination of wildlife and history, this film is based on the personal diaries of Ernest Thompson Seton himself.

    Poor guy! I cried when his mate died, then again when he died.

  2. If there's any interest, I've recorded another Seton" story for my "Stories from the Hiber-Nation" podcast: "Monarch, the Big Bear of Tallac."

    The book is now running on the show, and will finish around 12/5 or so. The podcast feed can be found at http://grizzlysgrowls.com.

  3. I watch this special last night and was moved and reminded once again that artists lead the way towards change and a better world.
