I'd say that in general the U.S. does a fairly good job when it comes to protecting and reintroducing animal species, but there are definitely certain states (e.g. Utah) that have it out for wolves. Some people here really buy into the idea that a wolf pack can decimate an entire elk herd.

That was John Muir, the founder of the SC. "Everything is attached to everything," the first precept of ecology.
Though when it came to the CA condor, the largest bird as far as wingspan, the SC decision/vote was to have them go extinct. "Let them die in peace."
Gratefully the people of CA disagreed, and I and everyone can now see these magnificent animals in their natural habitat, growing in numbers thanks to the efforts of dedicated workers and volunteers to bring them back.

Man virtually wipes out a species that has existed in a location for centuries or longer for a variety of reasons. No one gives a toss until the species is almost extinct, then a few get saved for zoos etc.
Gap of quite a few years.
Man starts to re-introduce that species under protection of legislation etc.
