CASPER, Wyo. - Much of the debate about wolf recovery has focused on the number of wolves in each state. But another indicator of recovery success considered under the endangered species law is whether or not packs are interbreeding to ensure genetic diversity. A new round of DNA testing shows there is some success to report, but there's a glaring lack of genetic exchange with packs in Yellowstone National Park.
