It was also heralded as a sign that gray wolves, which had been purged from the Grand Canyon region by a government eradication program in the early 19th century, were making a slow but steady comeback.

McDonald’s workers are the arbiters of the lovin’ for food deals, and if the commercial is anything to go by, they are positively giddy about spreading it.
