    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!

    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.
