    So, I want to know who will be the eyes, ears and investigative legs of FWS during this time they assume management. Hot line for reporting depredation incidents? Big freakin’ deal!

    Are they going to pull investigative resources out of their backsides or ignore the incidents? I can see it now – FBI (after the very few FWS law enforcement folks are deployed) teams dispatched to investigate mysterious disappearance of collared wolves in ID. The black suburban with fed lic. plates show up and men in black or navy gray dress suits, and talk into their sleeves, comb the countryside for clues. Now there is an effective use of your federal tax dollars during these lean times.

    Will state law enforcement – game wardens- still be investigating wolf poaching incidents through some co-op agreement for their help? Are the details available yet?

‎"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."
