Delisting could keep wolves from spreading. By Mike Stark. Associated Press.

Of course, that was Dept. of Interior’s goal in drawing the boundaries. Kempthorne, Bush, et al don’t like endangered species, nor any kind of wildlife very much unless it has been turned into a kind of livestock.

    If the author of this article is the same Mike Stark who wrote for the Billings Gazette for many years, congratuations on joining the Associated Press. I think the AP is the most objective, most trustworthy news organization. Professional journalism at its best.

    I’ve about had it with Wyoming. We, the people that spend thousands of dollars each in that state to see the natural world and wildlife as it should be, are not being heard. Who benefits from all of that money? People of Wyoming. If you have to kill things and change the environment to run your business or do your hobby get a new business or new hobby. I for one will stay away–and hate to do it! People of Wyoming will let these 18th century morons turn their state into another Arizona where the grizzly is gone, the wolf is almost gone again, and Wyoming doesn’t have Arizona’s weather! Intelligent people will never flock to Wyo. to see cowboys and cows. I don’t think major league baseball is moving spring training there anytime soon…

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
