GATLINBURG, Tenn. -- The spine-tingling howl of the wolf rarely heard these days across most of this vast country, is fading from another outpost.Sometime this fall, wildlife biologists will trap the last four red wolves still loose in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which straddles the Tennessee-North Carolina border.Their capture will end a nine-year struggle to reintroduce the endangered animals here, in one of the largest tracts of wilderness left in the eastern United States.

I am writing concerning the letter by Dr. Camay Woodall in the April 18 edition of the Towson Times ("Deer problem around Towson is threat to property, and safety"), concerning the number of deer in the Towson area. I fully agree with Dr. Woodall that the deer population is too large and presents hazards to people's health and the environment. While allowing a limited hunting season in order to cull the population is a good idea, I think there is better, more environmentally-friendly alternative to bring the deer population to a manageable level.

ATLANTA -- The red wolf, a shy animal that preys on white-tailed deer, rodents and other small mammals, inhabited the Southeast for hundreds of thousands of years before being almost wiped out by humans.Almost extinct two decades ago, it is making a comeback after being reintroduced into the wild, federal officials say. A mother, father and two female puppies were released in November in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the latest phase of a federal effort dating from the 1970s."They're doing well; they seem to be maintaining themselves," says Gary Henry, coordinator of the red wolf project for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Darron Edwards can clearly see his path to the NFL. The former Dunbar star and Arkansas State cornerback probably won't be a first- or second-day draft choice next month. But after watching his good friend LaQuan Williams go from undrafted wide receiver to integral special teams player for one of the NFL's premier franchises, Edwards has a blueprint to follow.    “Just growing up with LaQuan, me and him have known each other since we were nine or 10 years old, playing at Northwood,” Edwards said of his Pop Warner football days with the Ravens receiver.

The Next Level is a weekly Recruiting Report feature that focuses on natives of Anne Arundel County, Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Carroll County, Harford County and Howard County who appear on NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision rosters. Darron Edwards ' first season of Division I football ended with his Arkansas State squad finishing a disappointing 2010 campaign at 4-8. The Dunbar grad's second DI season, however, proved to be much more successful. On Saturday, Edwards capped an excellent senior season by helping Arkansas State to a 45-14 win over Troy, giving the Red Wolves (10-2, 8-0)

LAWSUITS and biology are thwarting efforts to restore the long endangered, long vilified wolf to the wild. And the resulting problems raise questions about the viability of captive-breeding, wild-release programs.A nine-year effort to reintroduce the red wolf in Great Smoky Mountains National Park ended recently when the animals could not catch enough prey. In North Carolina, red wolves have recovered on federal lands, but landowners are in court arguing for the right to shoot the animals on sight.

Weekends don't turn out much better than this past one for first-year Northern Illinois football coach Dave Doeren.

Navy senior Billy Yarborough was well aware of the daunting responsibility placed on him and each other member of the defensive line entering Saturday's game against pass-inclined Arkansas State. The Red Wolves were going to try to win by throwing often, and that meant a defensive scheme necessitating seven and sometimes eight defensive backs. Thus Yarborough, an end, would not be receiving much help rushing the passer considering Navy was not about to blitz and risk yielding a potentially game-altering long play.

Asheboro, N.C. -- The North Carolina Zoo, a young, ambitious park set here in the state's Piedmont, has the tonic for tourists tired of aging zoos with cramped cages, nearby traffic noise and little shade from the sun.With a dense canopy of oak and maple trees, the 1,448-acre zoo was planned with room for animals to roam. A trip is mandatory for zoo pilgrims or travelers to the Raleigh-Durham and Charlotte areas. More than 800,000 people visited the zoo last year.One reason to see this 21-year-old park is that its North America region -- half the zoo -- has opened in the last few years.
