Humans have historically seen large carnivores such as wolves and bears as threats to our livelihoods, or lives. They might, say, eat our sheep. Or our family. So, as the human population has grown, the numbers of large carnivores has generally plummeted. Which has unfortunate consequences. For example, without wolves in the northeast, ubiquitous deer spread disease and cause traffic accidents.

人類從過往歷史中,將大型食肉動物,如狼和熊,視為對我們財產或生命的威脅。牠們可能,比方說,吃掉我們的羊群,或是我們的家人。所以,當人類人口成長,大型食肉動物的數量就廣泛地筆直下降。這造成許多不幸的後果。舉例來說,東北方沒有了狼群,到處都是的鹿會散播疾病,並造成交通事故。
