The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service wants to know if wolves are returning to Maine's North Woods. They need volunteers to walk through the forest at night and howl like a wolf. Authorities in Japan are howling with rage. They think teenagers are vandalizing a Tokyo park. So they have begun playing a high-pitched tone at night that only young people can hear.

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with the annals of sound. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service wants to know if wolves are returning to Maine's north woods. They need volunteers. Your job would be to walk through the forest at night and howl like a wolf, then listen for a response.

Authorities in Japan are howling with rage. They think teenagers are vandalizing a Tokyo park. So they've begun playing a high-pitched tone at night that only young people can hear.

You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
