Caribou vs. wolves
Caribou live on Michipicoten Island in Lake Superior. They were brought there in 1982. The eight original caribou grew to be 680.
Then in 2012 the lake froze enough for four wolves to cross over to the island. Their numbers have grown and the caribou have dwindled. It is possible the caribou will be wiped out by the wolves.

Wolves and caribou on the island are both transplants. The island was never meant to sustain them. It certainly can't sustain them both. I know suggestions have been made about how to save the caribou. What about saving the wolves.
There must be a way to balance between the two species. Perhaps the wolves need to be relocated. After all they only ended up on the island because of an ice bridge. 
What ever they do I hope the solution doesn't involve killing. It should be possible to sort this out and let the animals live.
