One Response to Heavy snowfall sends elk onto the National Elk Refuge

    The article points out that the number of elk on the Refuge is higher than it’s been for the past four years, yet the outfitters over there are all wailing about wolves decimating “their” herds.

    Am I missing something here?

Quote

‎"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."

~ Edward Abbey
