WILD THINGS (USA, 2012, 39 min)

Presented with the Natural Resources Defense Council. 

Native carnivores balance ecosystems and keep the wilderness healthy, but they are also seen as a threat to livestock, and for decades ranchers and government trappers have slaughtered them. The Wildlife Services program within U. S. Department of Agriculture kills a hundred thousand coyotes, wolves and other native carnivores annually. It’s a battle against nature that is costly, brutal and not very effective. Does this battle really need to be fought? Wild Things introduces audiences to progressive ranchers learning to peacefully coexist with these animals and features scientists, conservationists and even former Wildlife Services trappers, who believe it’s time for a major change in the way we treat our magnificent native carnivores. Directed by Daniel Hinerfeld and Molly O’Brien and produced by Daniel Hinerfeld, Molly O’Brien and Lisa Whiteman. 

Introduced by Andrew Wetzler, Director, Land and Wildlife Program, Natural Resources Defense Council. Panel discussion, moderated by Melissa Waage, Campaign Director, Natural Resources Defense Council, with Andrew WetzlerBrooks Fahy, Executive Director, Predator Defense, and Maggie Brasted, Wildlife Policy Associate, Humane Society of the United States.
