Well, just we everyone is heading for the big wolf conference next week at Chico Hot Springs. That is right above Pray. It would be great to see some wolves in Paradise Valley, at least before they kill them!

    Before the wolf was delisted, I had asked Caroline Sime how they confirm these kills as wolf related -and not neighbor dog related or some other reason. I did not receive a reply … all I’ve been told in the past is teeth marks etc. kind of obvious. my question is what the owner did to prevent this. … people should be in the habit of prevention, not lethal control 24/7. Now it will be all lethal control… whether it was a wolf or not. Can anyone bring me back to earth? Am I too cynical? I’m sure there are a few smart comments out there..

    Hello Heather.
    You are right!
    The people are very ignorant about the wildlife these days.
    It is easier to kill an animal than have the right solution.
    It comes clear to me- the virus on the earth are the human beeing.
    many greetings

‎"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."
