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.

The islands are over run with deer, I suggest that they place them there.

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 isnít a thing.
