3 Responses to Ten per cent of Wyoming wolf population outside YNP now killed

    While it is sad news,
    this is good fuel for the de-listing lawsuit.

    That news makes me very sad. My husband and I lived in a log cabin in the Clearwater region. It had been vacant and used as a hunting cabin for ten years previously. A short while after we moved in we discovered we had moved in on the wolves camp.

    We never had a problem with them. I ran into them on foot several times. I am a 5’6″. 130 pound woman. I had livestock and dogs also. One day they took down an orphaned little buck but nothing else.

    Anyway, I think it is a disgrace that humans brought them back and are now hunting them. If nothing else, why don’t we relocate them to states who want them which are several. I know several people who go to Yellowstone just to see the wolves. Why aren’t the kill pics on the news? I hope the lawsuit kicks in soon.

    Sincerely,

    Adair Wadkins

    At this rate, they will be able to remove the entire WY population outside YNP in just a couple of years. Not exactly sound management.

    I agree with Nathan. This only increases the likelihood that the court will remand the delisting decision.

‎"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."
