I personally see two problems with wolves being introduced back into northern and western states. 1. Ranchers 2. Hunters. A very small group of individuals with powerful money driven organizations behind them, the NRA, The cattlemans assoc, the rocky mountain elk assoc, etc. Making a big stink about how their rights are being infringed upon again and again....This is very sad! wolves were driven off there native land by man, for his own use. Now the ecological balance of this park and other areas like my state of colorado are threatened by mans need to control everything! He alone wants to be apex predator. These are the kind of people who brush off scientific data for hatred and fear. Ranchers bark at me and say, "why should I have to accomodate wolves? my family has had this ranch for 100 years." shouldnt we all have some level of tollerance for other living things? shouldnt we all have respect that every living creature has a right to live and thrive; and that one is not more important than the other. Because I can tell you one fact, a bovine has no importance in an ecological system. They shit and burp constantly, trample public lands and over graze them while polluting public waterways! But that my racher friend is completely acceptable because it is a cash cow slaughter operation going to the feed the nation! yay! keep your Beef, Ill take wolves, Bison, wild horses and burros any day of the century.
Trapping is very wrong, in every way and should be completely outlawed as inhumane and torturous to any animal! Coyotes are not dangerous animals, humans are! Hunters and trappers along with so called wildlife officers who are payed to protect wildlife and look out for their safety because Humans are a danger to them! Dogs killing and tormenting trapped wolves or coyotes should not be allowed or tolerated! Lets all work together to change this!
