Oregon Wolf Conservation and Management Plan...

This is more coyote related than wolf but, it could pertain.
I once lived and worked in Las Vegas, Nv.
Lake Mead is the recreation mecca for water sport in southern Nevada. Water skiing, fishing, camping, bird and rabbit hunting and coyotes.
There are some very nice marinas and campgrounds built around the lake that are use by weekenders for a little weekend recreation with the wife, kids and family pets.
It's a common practice to leash Spot or Fifi to the motor homes or camp trailer, while spending the day enjoying the activities at hand, only to return to an empty collar leashed to that motor home or camp trailer.
Some of us just don't get it. There are creatures on this planet that don't play by the same set of rules that we have tried to establish for ourselves.

Are the coyotes bad and the humans terrorized or
the coyotes instinctive and the humans ignorant

I say it's 1 for the coyotes. 0 for the humans

fuzzybear, I think the other creatures are playing by the same rules they always have. We just think since we got civilized that everything else can be "tamed" too. I'm not sure if that's what you meant or not...

Funny thing is, those same folks(who lose their pets at the rec. area) could be some of the same ones that are anti-hunting and give money to PETA, Defenders of Wildlife and the Humane Society. Far as I'm concerned they deserve it. Maybe they will wake up to the reality that these animals need to be managed instead of protected from our "harm".

Ya know Don, that's fine if you don't want wolves there. Make your voice heard in the management plan process. I'm not trying to tell anyone that they NEED to have wolves in their area, just that if, through the typical legislative/administrative process, people approve of letting wolves into their state, don't allow the fear mongering and vigilantism common with the anti-wolf folks when they don't get their way in this issue. Keep a clear head. People listen much better when someone talks rationally than when someone spouts hate and contempt.

It's terrible. Some of us get these idealistic thoughts and actually start believing them.
Wild animals live by their instincts. Survival, food in the belly and shelter from the storm.

Doesn't that critter that is carrying my arm of in his mouth, look cute? WHOA!!!

I don't think these preditor subjects really need anymore discussion. My new attitude is, "Plant em'". If you don't care about those animals any more than that, go ahead. Then after you find out that the uncililized world don't want them and don't care about laws that try to shove the preditors up our noses, a polite way of saying ass's,you can try forcing some other thing on us we don't want.
Go ahead and save the world, PLANT EM'!!!!!!!!!! :-?
