Other than lining peoples pockets with ill gotten gains I have never been able to understand the idea behind wolf introduction.

I guess I'm failing to see the point of the article? I think every one of us here, without a biology degree could have predicted exactly what happened before they did it.

Those wolves would still be alive if the island had ranches stocked with cattle for the wolves.

 :chuckle:  so true

Thanks for the link.  I enjoyed reading what seemed as unbiased biology.

I agree with that. It is very clear unbiased description of what happened, and how quickly it happened.

I dont think our bios or their managers are as stupid as their actions would suggest, more to the point I believe their methods are netting the desired results.  I honestly believe the agenda sees the wolf problem as a tool used effectively to bring us to the point where wdfw needs to protect certain ungulate herds, one by one until there is no longer a hunting season.  End hunting, take guns.  Its where we're going no doubt in my mind.

I agree 100% that is the true agenda. End hunting and then total gun confiscation.

They are a truly threatening force that has to be delt with.

I can think of one way that you could fix that. If you married into a certain culture and you are 1/1000 of that blood line then you would be untouchable. And you could keep your guns. This idea could get me in trouble?

"Common Sense" has been mentioned here a few times!   Common sense and government is an oxymoron!

The two will never mingle together!   It been indoctrinated out of people who attend higher indoctrination centers!!

I don't think it's so much about taking guns, but more in line with locking up public lands, the Wildlands Project comes to mind. Uncontrolled wolves will eventually ruin ranching on public and private lands, and eventually end hunting also. Getting grazing permits canceled and no hunting, not much stands in the way. We have seen the road closures over the years and it seems to be getting worse. Bring in the grizzly bears which will shut off huge chunks for  bear recovery, and pretty quick we will be boxed.
