    I see that Marion from Greybull is still spewing her fiction.

    I would like to caution my fellow wolf advocates to watch our “trigger” fingers, too. Some wolf haters have a perverse sense of humor and enjoy stirring up the emotions of wolf supporters. I would not be surprised if the first photo or You-Tube video of a dead wolf that makes the rounds in the coming days turns out to be fiction, or old news, used to deliberately rile and mock worried supporters. Although I do indeed believe that wolf-killing will go on (and has been going on, quietly in all three states), I hope we can keep cool heads and let it play out via the proper authorities. I am not particularly hopeful but I think we have to see what they do, now that they got what they want and have the control.

    P.S. Lynne Stone – so sorry to hear of your recent confrontation with that nut. Hope you mend quickly.

    Marion a female, I don’t see the hunting population of Idaho and the other states as being able to take out wolves who are a much smaller target as well as a more mobile one. Besides you are going to have to exit your super duty and be physically and mentally fit enough to bag the wolf. Now go ahead and start blah blah blahing so called experts.
