    Follow the money. It applies here too.

    I’m getting things set up here to host a roundtable discussion on the common threats to wolves, ranching, hunting, and conservation efforts in western lands. This will of course be one of the issues discussed.

    It scares the hell out of me that the people on the casper star tribune comments section actually defend energy companies just to put down wolves and environmental “activists”. i think part of me wants to see wyoming get completely destroyed by drilling so all of these people can get exactly what they wish for…
