On This Day Over A Century Ago, The "Father of Wildlife Management" Was Born

Mexican gray wolf M805
"We reached the old wolf in time to watch a fierce green fire dying in her eyes. I realized then, and have known ever since, that there was something new to me in those eyes - something known only to her and to the mountain."
~ Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac

Aldo Leopold was born on this day in 1887.
