  1. I love wolves. I was so glad to find this blog. The great wolf debate has been going on too long, I think. Wolves have every reason to be part of Earth’s ecosystems, & they need to be, too. If you’re interested, check out my blog @
    I’m happy someone is taking notice of this wolf issue we’re facing. I’ll definitely remember this blog & check it out often.

    Interesting piece, especially from someone from IDFG. Wish he had addressed the myth of wolves killing for “fun”.

    I hope the myth of the killer wolf will stop sometime in the near future. People come to see the wolf plus we kill them too people make money on both sides!

  4. ProWolf in WY says:

    About time this got addressed by someone in the state fish and game. But I agree with you Jim, the idea of wolves killing for fun should be addressed.

‎"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."
