LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- A study by Utah State University says most Utahns have a positive attitude toward wolves.

Utah State alum Jeremy Bruskotter found that Utahns attitudes toward wolves are stable over time, even after media reports that frighten some people.

The survey was funded by the National Science Foundation and the USU-led Berryman Institute for Wildlife Damage Management. Bruskotter completed the work as part of his masters thesis.

Bruskotter says most people in Utah don't love or hate wolves even when there are wolf sightings in populated areas.
