Loosing your private property due to a govt sponsored reintrodustion program of a predator that you cant control is what should be illegal.Until you have lived in this coutry and tried to make a living from a cattle operation like my grandparents do you dont have a first hand view of how this affects people.How would you like it if you lost several thousand dollars a year due to a whim of the US govt and they told you that if you tried to prevent it you would go to jail?Ill bet you wouldnt like it at all,Ill bet you might try to do somthing about it too.Then again maybe you are one of the sheep that believe everything you hear and maybe you are too much of a coward to do anything to help yourself.Either way you look at it the ranchers can shoot them again and our state has control now,there have been 6 reported killings in the last 6 months,all investigated and all found to be legal.The f&g is tanning thehides and donating them to wildlife programs for our school system,making sure future generations know how to ID them in the field ; )
Im glad I gave you something to comment on that fit your maturity level Captian... UPDATE Wyoming just shot a female wolf and her four pups for killing a ranchers sheep this week,they dont waste any time down there.The wolf idiots wanted to pay to have them relocated and radio collared but the Wy F&G stepped in and dealt out some common sense wolf managment.
Just when I thought you had hit an alltime low!They practice this type of managment because they respect peoples right to private property,you cant put them in jail for stealing property like we would a member of your family so they remove them from the ecosystem the old fasioned way.There was a very good reason wolves were removed in the first place,and they covered a much larger portion of the country than where they are now,they are here because they thought they would stay in the Yellowstone area,they were wrong.The elk numbers are at an alltime low in yellowstone so the wolves have gone in search of more game,the first thing they find is sheep and cattle.
My number 1 point, which you missed, possibly due to your hurry to get from your Girls' softball game to your late-night bingo match, is that if its not the wolves it is something else. IT'S ALWAYS SOMETHING! Always. Problems, problems, problems. There are few people on this Earth that are more anti-wildlife than ranchers, except perhaps you.
The ranchers of this state provide more for the wildlife than you would in 1000 lifetimes,they feed them,protect them from predators and often times provide sanctuary for them from hunters and hard winters,where do you get off calling them anti-wildlfie?You have no idea what you are talking about,I know several that have provided hay for elk,deer and antelope that are suffering from the deep snows during a bad winter,you have any idea what it costs to feed a couple hundred elk for a month?You have made some stupid,unfounded statements in your time but this one takes the cake!Take away all the land from the farmers and ranchers and make it public and the wildlife would have no sanctuary from hunters,no fields full of crops to feed on and nobody to help them in bad winters,out here the rancher is the game animals best friend and Im sure they dont mind seeing a few wolves shot at all,its not a disney film out here wolves kill everything they can get ahold of.
I am always amazed at the amount of scent control products that exist on the market today. But they are there for a reason. Game animals have incredible noses and if you go out into the field smelling like body odor, summer sausage, gasoline and last night's Miller High Life fiasco you will probably not be punching a tag. Scent control sprays aren't cheap though. On a college student budget I had a serious need to alleviate at least some of my hunting costs. This is why I decided to...
