Operation Wolf Patrol charts eco-activist Rod Coronado's attempt to end wolf hunting in the United States. Over the course of three years, we watch Rod work to redefine his activism in an era– post 9/11, where some have called him an “eco-terrorist.” The film comes to a climax when Coronado's "Wolf Patrol" is met with a tightening of "hunter harassment" laws that prohibit photography on public lands. Now Coronado has to ask himself, is he willing to go back to prison to fight a law that some are calling "unconstitutional"?

Programmer Notes:

An extremely important cautionary tale of the abuse of national land and resources masquerading as "traditional" hunting practices. Rod is a fantastic character and leader. The doc makes you question, how can this go under the radar?
