Is this proposed legislation a good thing?

House Representative, Joel Kretz from Wauconda co-sponsored the legislation that, if passed, would direct the Department of Fish and Wildlife to relocate wolves to reduce conflicts in areas where known interactions have resulted in injury to livestock or dogs.

One can only imagine what kind of bill the WDFW could run up.

So is he implying that the love needs to be spread around to the west side and such?

I think that's in line with the management plan in getting them to the west side!!  Since I am a burden on the working class I could make myself useful. I volunteer to haul a few. I would even buy my own fuel.

Dont they shoot problem wolves now?

Maybe the process of getting around to deciding that a wolf pack needs to be shot takes too long and he figures that relocating would go faster, and yes, relocate to King county might be what he suggests.

You know darn good and well the wolves if relocated wouldn't go to King County. They would end up in Rural W WA like the Peninsula or SW WA. I hope they never get here. We have enough problems as it is.

I think it's hilarious.......

And I think he has every right to try to spread the love to the wolf lovers that insist on wolves in his part of the state.

I suspect that most of the wolf lovers don't want them in their backyards.....   Or wouldn't for long.

What would be the argument against doing this after all it supports the plan?

There are some big mountains and wide open country in King County. Plenty of room for a few wolves to be released LOL.

All kidding aside, if there had to be some wolves in king county, the mountains and wilderness areas of the eastern part of the county would be the spot.  Very remote country there. Steep and deep. Cracks me up when people think that that isn’t a thing.

“If there has to be”.  Lol. 

 Just think, this is a way for you and the city wolf lovers to protect more wolves from being “poached” on the east side.

The problem is wolves need to eat and I'm not sure they'd find enough deer in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness.

I'm not against this in theory, but consider:

How much did it cost for the state to contract out killing a few problem wolves?
How much did they spend on the consultant?
How much would it cost to live capture and relocate 1 wolf?

It means you should welcome the wolves with open arms, then put full faith in the state’s ability to manage them.   You know, the same kind of thing you and many others have been preaching to the east side residents.   

It’s a win/win for you.  Move over the at risk for being poached wolves, and protect them.  Then you can set an example for those lawbreaking east side poachers...  look at this as an opportunity to shine.

Didn’t say he was an enemy.  I do follow and read his posts though.  He’s made his opinions well known.

Just a guess, but I’d be willing to bet there’s more wolf lovers in King county then there is in all of eastern Washington.

Not sure why you or anyone would think I’m a wolf lover or have any interest in protecting them. I do believe in following the law as much as I may or may not like it and I have recently questioned the folks who were preaching SSS in a different thread.  Questioned or called them out is a better term maybe. It was made clear to me by more than one of them that it’s ok to shoot them as long as it’s someone else who does it. That makes me chuckle. Maybe that’s what’s bugging Miles. If I’m mistaken please explain otherwise where I’ve described myself as a wolf lover. I’ll be waiting.

I'm thinking it's all a legal ploy to get the wolf lovers 2 give reasons why not to have them in the western side of the state which would be able to allow the argument of the state has met the management plan and will allow delisting and a possible hunt. Just my  :twocents:.
