For forty years, the scientists have come to take part in this iconic predator-prey study, and for forty years the sound of high-pitched yips have greeted their ears, heralding a new generation of wolf pups. That is, until last summer. It was a summer without yips. Aerial surveys supported the implications of that silent summer—the wolves of Isle Royale did not produce pups.
