11 Wolves Killed to Save Caribou

Understand this logic(?) if you can. In North America there are an estimated 61,000 – 69,000 wolves alive. In the South Selkirks 11 wolves were killed, leaving 10 behind. This, they say, was done to save the caribou. There are an estimated 14 caribou left in the South Selkirks.

Where wolves live near caribou, one adult wolf kills 15-20 caribou in one year.

In all honesty, does this make any sense at all?
