Helena wolf-plan hearing

Not a lot of people showed up, but then I think wolf opponents figure they have won the day. Here is the story from Helena, MT in the Helena Independent Record.

As I learn more about the Cody hearing, it’s apparent that the scientific review process is bogus. The states will decide who reviews their plans, and they will only have to review the plan generically. For example, if the state wants to kill wolves because wolves are killing elk on Wyoming’s unnatural winter elk feedlots, all the reviewer will have to certify is that “yes, the wolves kill elk on the feedlots,” and that will end the discussion, forever.

The Boise hearing will be tonight. It may be on-line here in real time, and you may be able to testify. BE will be setting things up. We will see.
