Continued extraction of oil from the tar sands of Alberta, Canada destroys caribou habitat. But instead of restraining a destructive industry and cleaning up the man-made (but profitable) mess it creates, wolves are being exterminated in an effort to save the caribou population. 

Will hunting down wolves solve the real problem? This short documentary, a "first report" from DeSmogBlog, investigates the politics of "ethical oil."
