See, Don, that's the kind of outlaw attitude I have the biggest problem with. Believe me, I'm no fan of authority, but really, we can't have people going off half-cocked and killing animals willy nilly, which is what you are saying. Your not just saying that if a rancher sees a wolf attacking his/her livestock they will kill it(which is perfectly legit), but if a rancher SEES a wolf they will kill it. I don't care who you are or where you come from, the law is the law. If'n ya don't like it git it changed!
As for catching people, you're right for the most part. But believe you me, even in supposedly remote areas the wind has ears. And you may get away with it for awhile, but it will catch up yo you. My only hope(as I've said before) is that we can get the wolf delisted so that folks can LEGALLY protect what's theirs.
