In a paper known as the Leopold Reportthe committee observed that culling programs at other national parks had been ineffective, and recommended management of Yellowstone's elk population. There are around 60 animal species in Yellowstone, some of which include the gray wolf, black bears, elk, moose, deer, bighorn sheep and mountain lions.
