Why in the world didn't they try and save these animals when there was 100, 75 or even 50 left ? Why did the WDFW wait so long, because of wolves and only wolves. :bash:
I could care less about what anybody says..............

I might be wrong, but I think the only reason anything is being done is because the Kalispell Tribe is making it happen? @WAcoyotehunter

It took quite some time, but we (Tribe) finally figured out that the agencies were not going to take action for caribou recovery.  We are pushing the effort as hard as we can now and the BC side is getting on board.

Dang it must be getting late I seriously thought "what does a caribou need a pen for?" For a moment! On second thought they would probably fare better writing their local elected officials  :tung:

I'd say so. wacoyotehunter and I talked about this 3-4 years ago I think.

There were many of us who talked about the woodland caribou during the wolf plan development process. They didn't care about the Selkirk caribou or about the smaller, indigenous wolves already living in WA and OR. These people only care about one animal at the expense of all others.

According to yesterdays Spokane paper, the caribou pens in Canada are not usable this winter because of to much snow. According to the article the positive of to much snow is that it will allow them to add more netting to increase the height of the pen for next year and there is so much snow the predators are supposedly down low out of the caribou winter range preying on deer and elk that winter lower than caribou.
