But is wasn’t supposed to be this way, the Wyoming wolf population would grow 20% forever! Just ask Gov. Dave or that Crank guy who is the State’s AG.

Here is the brief item from the Bang’s weekly report:

Mid-summer pack counts in Wyoming include: 15 breeding packs with pups, 7 packs with unknown breeding status, and 2 suspected packs outside the Parks and Yellowstone reports 10 packs/breeding pairs, the same number as last year. It is likely the wolf population estimate in Wyoming in 2007 will be similar too or slightly lower than it was in 2006 [311 wolves in 25 breeding pairs].

7 Responses to Bangs predicts no wolf populaton growth in Wyoming this year

    Why would a state attorney general even be involved or comment on wolves and/or the environment? It just goes to show you that science does not rule in Wyoming–politics does. Not just politics, but big business politics! Does anybody believe anything politicians say anymore?
    The thing that really drives me nuts is no politician will ever have to be legally responsible for any bad decision on the environment–but we will all pay dearly for their idiot decisions!

  2. Denise Johnson says:

    What jimbob says is so sad but so true.
    What a world….

  3. clover says:

    Bangs is not God. Just because he predicts something does not mean it is or will happen.

  4. Clover,

    You so not have to be God to predict something, and in fact Ed Bangs is not even really predicting so much as adding up the numeric reports from biologists in Yellowstone Park and crews in Wyoming and reporting the results.

  5. clover says:

    Ralph How right you are. God doesnt predict. What he says is fact.

  6. Are you naturally stupid, or did you just learn to be that way?

  7. clover
    So, what are God’s facts about the wolves???? Do you think that maybe Ed is choosing to use the brain that God gave him? [unlike yourself?]



‎"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."
