You didn't say so but I assume your heart also breaks for the newborn calves and fawns surrounded by the pack. Wolf pups gotta eat and you do know what that means.
A word of warning to citizens in the Helena area: If you enjoy recreating on YOUR public lands--and particularly if you take pleasure in sharing Montana's Great Outdoors with your canine companion--be aware that a gun-wielding man named Joe is at large and is unable to distinguish the difference between a wild wolf and a groomed malamute wearing a collar with a light mounted on it. It's possible he will shoot first and determine his target later. Further, Joe advises that you keep your companion(s) on leash for a full six months of the year on YOUR public lands so as not to impede his quest for a wolf trophy.
"Hunter kills companion dog: I thought it was a wolf"
In reading these comments, I am so angered by the ignorance of some people. Come on hunting freaks! This person that was a so-called hunter was an obvious idiot who never attended a Hunters Safety Course a day in his life. He made a huge error and killed someone's dog - which is a BIG thing. It is not to be taken lightly. That's all that should be important in this case. The "hunter" was WRONG. PERIOD. He should have his license taken away permanently for the mere fact that he's too much of an idiot to own a gun. Who knows who or what he'll shoot next "by mistake" ... ooops!!!
Well stated Sandi and Jobs
I find your letter to forget coal a disservice to all of Montana. We all benefit from coal weather it is the coal tax or the jobs or the money the jobs bring back to Montana. What is your job is it 100 percent great for the environment? Are you a teacher I bet you use paper. Another resource we are pushing out of America and now get elsewhere how good was that for Montana and Missoula. Are you someone who doesn't live at work I bet you use a car to get to work once in a while or a bus which both burn fossil fuel should we forget gas and diesel also?
Claudia, John Roeber is one of those rare truly decent, heart-working, and totally selfless men. He does represent, and speak for, everything the AFL-CIO is working toward. He is a forward thinker, a well respected labor leader, and a Blue-Green believer and is working all opportunities to move a balanced agenda. Open your ears.
Supporting coal jobs and the responsible development of them has nothing to do with crazy Tea Party politics. This view almost makes you too absurd to take seriously and the issue of secure pensions and corporate sins is an issue for all workplaces. It is not unique to coal mining.
What is your job Claudia? How were your kids fed? What if we were wishing we had transitioned your job a decade ago? Opinions come easy from the cheap seats don't they?
