Give me a break. Wolves have been in North American for centuries and the elk and deer have all survived just fine. They don't do near the damage humans do I'll tell you that right now. I think wolves are a part of nature and who are we to decide they no longer have a place there. Nature has its own balance. Furthermore I do believe that people are overexaggerating the effects the wolves are having in Yellowstone. I was in Yellowstone last summer and saw plenty of elk. Didn't see any wolves chasing them around.
With that being said the wolves do need to be regulated. If studies do in fact show that they are having a significant impact on other species I would be angry if they didn't issue tags and a hunting season the control the population. If a livestock owner sees a wolf endangering his property I think he should have every right to shoot it. My point is there has to be a middle ground. I just will never believe we have the right to wipe a species off the face of the earth. If its wolf habitat they should be there and regulated like any other animal.
