Wolves

Western lawmakers turn sights on endangered wolves - Yahoo! News

I can tell you that whatever the laws are, they are getting killed on sight. I personally believe that the only good wolf is a dead one! They are wiping out the Elk and Deer populations in Northern Idaho.

Weeeeellll, I can see the point. I am currently in a natural resource management program in college here in Colorado. We discuss this quite often, especially in my wildlife and fisheries class. I personally think they should lift their endangered species status. They introduced and protected them in the wild, and obviously they have recovered rather quickly. Now they are going to be getting further and further out off control unless their numbers are kept in check. What I think is ridiculous, is that they spent millions to release wolves back into the wild here in Colorado, and guess what, they left the state and went elsewhere, along with the Lynx. Now that was a great way to waste money.

I can tell you where they all ended up.

While I am still out of state thanks to the Military, I have every intention of moving back to Idaho. I would like to be able to start hunting Elk again. When I was home last weekend the neighbor showed me pics from his last WEEK camping. He found 2 dens, and 6 torn apart Elk. That was in a single week!

Yup the good ol' S curve J curve. The Elk have grown in numbers, then they release the Gray Wolf and their numbers will be decimated. Then we have to deal with an over population of wolves that will start preying on other animals and then what? We will have to eradicate the wolves in hopes to get the population of other animals back. A very vicious cycle if not MANAGED correctly. We can't protect every damn animal, natural cycles need to take place and be allowed to run it's course. And we as humans are apart of that cycle. I do not believe that it should just be open season on every wolf someone runs across, since they do have their natural roll on this earth, but policies need to be put into place that would allow them to be hunted.

Animals thought long extinct make surprise comebacks - Green - Catholic Online

I'm not so sure all the screaming about killing off animals is really true. I'm sure some become endangered...to a degree, but relatively few become actually extinct.........Dammit, outsmarted by mother nature again.

Very interesting info. Mother nature always seems to have her way. Now if we can play our part and not throw everything off, that would be great. It just seems to me the "experts" continue to "try" to fix a perceived problem and end up creating another.
