Just Another Perfect Day in Paradise

Just Another Perfect Day in Paradise

The quaint little town of Ely north of Minnesota past the grey waters of Lake Superior, comes as a neat surprise all wrapped in lush green on a rainy evening late August. Our six-hour long first road trip in the United States with pit-stops at Highway 61 and Dylan playing in the car’s stereo, the much-debated lunch at Subway, at Finland (just a moniker for a town that has actually little to do with ‘Finland’), or even climbing rocks and contemplating a twenty-dollar bet to swim in icy water all add to the curiosity that is Ely.

The hunt returns to wolf country

Gerald Tyler lives up at Ely, northern Minnesota, a town of about 3,500 people just shy of the Canadian border. It’s wilderness country, canoe country, and, most controversially, wolf country.

Tyler is a retired property developer who put himself through law school, but never really practiced as a lawyer. A few years ago, he and a friend, Minnesotan cattle rancher Dale Lueck, began agitating for a wolf hunt. Tyler says he and Lueck were worried about the number of wolf attacks on cattle and domestic dogs and feared there could be an attack on humans.
