    Interesting replies on the article… as usual…

    Why doesn’t Ron Gillette just take up another hobby?
    I hear gardening does wonders for the mind and body.

    This man is truly an idiot. He has no IDEA what he is speaking about. He is most definetly not a good steward for our ecology system.

    He is a red neck big mouth. He needs to be place out among the wolves and see what wonderful animals they are and not even THEY would harm a fool like him..but the fool that he is WOULD harm them

    RANCHERS…get a grip and come up with some creative ideas besides KILLING our wolves…a member of Earthjustice, Wildlife Defenders and Keepers Of The Wolves,

    Wolves are a important part of ecology system, not to mention there are many ways to deal with wolves besides taking them back to brink of extinction. I have been blessed to see a timber wolf in the wild, and I hear wolves around my home off and on…They bother no one here…Why do we always feel we have to kill wildlife to solve a problem? How would Ron like someone to trap him, shoot at him from a plane, and not for food, just for sport. People like him make me feel ashamed of the human race. Save the Wolves, sign a petition, and educate yourself about wolves…thanks…ladyofthelake

‎"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."
