Towson cares about its natural bio-diversity, while at the same time bringing the deer population down.
As an added bonus, their nocturnal ululations would warm the hearts of Towson area residents lucky enough to live adjacent to or near the Loch Raven woods.
Just as the growing black bear population is helping to bring Western Maryland back its natural heritage, red wolves could be just the thing for this issue.
