Yea two cities decided to vote prop 114 in, the rest of the state voted against it.  I see a solution for western Colorado, they can use the PITA solution against them!  PITA does not want to kill the wolves just trap them and move them.  Ok trap the wolves that are problems then transport them to a different area, Denver and Boulder and release them in the downtown area.  Watch how fast they will demand something be done.  Trapping or ?

Colorado is just like washington, California, the list goes on...   The large cities full of clueless people are making decisions for the rest of the state.

What data are you looking at for your assertion? I see wolf supporters in every county.

Same Data you posted makes his argument. 64 counties and 51 of them said no. Boulder and Denver Counties population wipes out all of the no votes. This is why we have the electoral college for the USA so California and New York can't decide for the whole nation. Just like 3 countries in Washington state.

This original statement, to which I responded, has little to do with your statement.
The data I provided shows it is a false statement. The measure would not have passed based on the vote from those 2 cities alone. It would have failed without thousands of additional yes votes from different counties around the state. 

Your electoral college reference makes little sense. Most states tally the popular vote and award electoral votes to the popular vote winner. Measure 114 was a state issue, not a federal issue.

Okay brainyack,

I know it was a state issue. I was making a point that a few counties shouldn't be able to control a whole state and that is my point with the electoral college. The popular vote doesn't always win. You have 51 of 64 counties voting no but the top 5 largest counties in Colorado voted yes. Margin of yes votes in those 5 counties looks to be 10% or so but the margin of no votes in the 51 counties is 35-50% or more.

The places that are going to be most affected don't have the population to beat the top 5 counties that have 50% of the population and get to vote on something that will affect their daily life very little but the others counties are going to have to deal with wolves now.

So what exactly is your proposal? Wildlife resources are held in trust for all citizens. This is based on the worlds most successful system for safeguarding fish and wildlife.

Welcome to the forum hydro. The point being made by others is really simple. The majority of those that voted yes for wolves in Colorado live in metropolitan or developed areas. Those counties certainly carried vote.

And My proposal, dont allow wildlife to be managed by a ballot, manage by science. Wolves are already in Colorado and will continue their migration there via Wyoming naturally.

Well fortunately federal land is geared toward multi use and placed in trust for all citizens, and our wildlife is also placed in trust for the public. It seems fitting to me the public having input on how their trust lands and wildlife are managed. That is the beautiful thing about this country, thank you Mr. Roosevelt.
