In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

" ... My, what big eyes you have grandmother. 'All the better to see you with, my dear.' My, what big teeth you have grandmother. 'All the better to eat you with, my dear. ' ... " The story of Little Red Riding Hood is one that commonly surfaces when people talk about and picture wolves. The negative image that has been placed upon wolves originates from folklore, fairy tales, and Hollywood. This same falsified image is one that has greatly contributed to the past and present plight of the wolf. These fearful images of wolves have made them a species that has been hunted to near extinction and continue to impact their survival. It is a constant struggle for an image of wolves as a symbol for nature, wilderness, and beauty to become the more popular view of this endangered species.
