    Once again Federal Government sticking their noses in the States business when they do not need to do so. I was told by a friend of mine who lives there that the wolves are killing Elk at a record rate there and a few other states. I certainly am not anti-wolf but I think if properly controlled even man is an important part of conservation and the rules of nature.

    People who praise the "good old days" in the early and mid 20th century when elk and moose were plentiful like to claim that was the result of the "balance of nature".

    Nope.

    It was the result of decades of killing wolves with bounties, government-hired wolf hunters, trapping and poison. That's a fact. BTW, the same people killed a lot of bears, too.

    I don't advocate the use of poison to control wolves but more than sizeable bounties are required, even bounties added to the pelt value for a trapper.

    Helicopters and/or super cubs with the right side door off also have a role to play if we want to really do any good.

    Don't get yer knickers in a wad worrying about wolves becoming extinct.
    We've got 100's of millions of their descendants roaming our yards and kennels. Give nature a chance to work it's magic and we'll have wolves again in a couple of thousand years.

    The sad part is this will cost the state of Idaho 2 million dollars to handle something that the activist groups have been sickin their noses into for no reason. When they first agreed to bring the wolves back to Idaho everyone sat down and penciled out an agreement and the activists have brought so may lawsuits we now have a 2 million dollar problem that they should be financially responsible for. These right to life groups should have to pay for the killing of these wolves.

    Left wing moral busybodies should be paying for a lot more than wolf control.

    Quite a video! However the issue I saw was up in the top right corner the letters "MSN" appeared. Of course we all know they have always been known for integrity in reporting the truth!:rolleyes:
    This picture was taken in Idaho! If each one of them contributed to killing 10 deer or elk each year this pack would contribute to 240 animals killed. Sure would't take long to clean their territorial range out!

    Bruce Babbitt "reintroduced" wolves in the US. Babbitt should be covered in with elk blood and tied to a tree in wolf country.

    Most people do not realize the actual size and strength of a full grown wolf! Check this Idaho Wolf picture out! Although absolutely beautiful, but they are a killing machine by themselves but in the pack it is unbelievable. I sure would not want to be in the wild and run into the pack in my previous post since there are around 24 of them!

    "ME NOT WANNA BE SNACK"! :D

    A good argument for high capacity magazines.

    MSN did not conduct the study. I'm just trying to point out when there is balance from top of the food chain on down, it does the environment a lot of good. Yes, the wolves kill deer and elk but that also creates a balance in forest growth, ground cover, etc. Did you guys actually watch the whole video? I'm not saying it's okay for wolves to attack farm animals, etc. but when left to balance an ecosystem, wolves are a part of the whole balance.
