Poisoned Earth explores what happens when we chose one animal over another. At its core, this is a story about our relationship with wolves – a relationship based on love, hate and fear. For the past several years, a government program in Western Canada has been poisoning wolves in an effort to recover a dwindling caribou population. This film looks at this controversial program, its unintended consequences and what needs to be done to ensure both species have a future.
