Here is the problem- people like you send thousands of dollars to Suzanne Stone and she is making a good living on you !!!!! Yes she puts pictures of baby wolves on fundraiser crap and her plan is to get college students to donate their time and stay up all night and bang pots and pans to chase the wolves away from the sheep herds.

Read the story that they are claiming as a big success to have a pilot program that they can have all around the country ????????

What, exactly, are those farmers ignorant of? And where do you get your information?

I live in CA where hunting mountain lions has been illegal since the early 1970's when Ronald Reagan signed a moratorium on lion hunting. Since then the lion population has grown unchecked. Lions are becoming a threat to people now, instead of their being a threat only to livestock and pets.

Are the people in Idaho and other wolf habitat supposed to wait until people start getting killed by wolves before they are considered a "problem"?

Chase is a product of Urban America. He has no idea of where his Big Mac with double cheese comes from. I notice his avatar is a pet dog how cute. The wolves are killing pet dogs and working dogs in the West every day. I expect if he found only a bloody collar of his dog in the back yard he might understand.

North Idaho is not farm country. The valleys are to narrow and the mountian sides to steep. The Timber Wolf was native to north Idaho and are no longer here.
Now we have arctic grey wolves who are a non native specie in a habitiat not capable of sustaining them for much longer. Thats why there have never been any here. They killed off the remaining timber wolves.
So the statement killing off the rest of the native wolves in the us is way beyond ignorant.

Like bears, these wolves might be best protected in a game preserve or a zoo; they don't seem to be fitting in well in Idaho.

I remember when Fish and Game Officers went into Lolo with the helicopters and couldn't even kill them from the sky. The dogs hid so well they had to give up because they got such poor results. I wish they would just get a grip on this and start offering a bounty.

That might turn into a profitable tourism opportunity. If i could afford it (time and money), i would probably treat myself to a bear hunt for Christmas.

I don't know why people think predators are harmless, maybe in small numbers but the population gets to big for natural food source they get brave and go for cattle, sheep and domestic animals in their area.

For the city folk, imagine if dangerous gangs move into your neighborhood and started stalking your house!

Wolves don't care about their natural food source, they'll go after cattle just because its there. This has and is already happening in idaho. But you are correct when the natural food source is diminished the wolves will start getting desperate and bold in what and where they hunt.

What tree hugger website are you getting your information from? Wolves are over running every area where the governement turned them loose, this may not have gotten to be such a problem if they would have been delisted years ago when they reached their target populations. Everytime there was a delisting some idiot lib filed suit and some lib judge ruled they still be protected. Endangered or not endangered is a matter of numbers, not liberal sensibilities. If they shoot for a population of 500 in a given state and the current population is 3000 and growing, that's only the ones which are actually counted, then please explain to me how these animals are endangered? Maybe they are endangered in Florida, or Louisiana or Illinois or Maryland. They aren't endangered in WI, MN, Idaho, Wyoming, etc. Hopefully some day they will be extinct in the lower 48 like they belong.
