I saw this on the cnn homepage awhile back and decided to post on it.


I think that authorizing the full scale destruction of packs is highly ludicrous, we finally get their population going again, and now we want to start slaughtering them because they pose a risk to livestock producing ranchers????? really???.

1970's
Hey guys, I have a great idea, why don't we set up our livestock business in this area in Montana. Oh about that program to enhance the Grey Wolf population pshhhh, don't worry about it, they are not present in sufficient numbers to do any harm.

2011
My granddaddy grew up his entire life raising these fine livestock, and now our farm is in trouble because of these vicious wolves, we need to start killing them, or else our business will fail. Ever since the WOLVES have invaded our area, we haven't been able to protect our product, we put up fences and nothing has worked.

This is how I imagine most of these ranchers started out, gee isn't it just intelligent to invade the only area that the wolf population has to roam and set up a fat, and juicy livestock business in that area.
You made a bad investment, most likely because your stupid, move somewhere else, take your business and adapt, like many humans have done before, instead of reverting to the ways of a 1700's era pilgrim and killing anything that poses a threat to your horrible business idea.

P.S.- It isn't natural selection to shoot a wolf from 500 meters with a high powered rifle, go out their with a spear and a sharpened stick or gtfu.

Your opinions?

I am not in favor of wholesale wolf killing, but to say that we will not utilize hundreds of thousands of acres of prime ranch land because it has wolves on it is fairly ludicrous.

I'd say killing wolves is adapting to the situation

i dont think we need to make it open season but i can see putting it in the draw and giving a selected amount of tags out to cull the population a bit.. especially in heavy populated farm areas..

Cow's eat most of the grain we produce, we could do with less of them and trying eat bee-burgers instead.

Lions: endangered
Tigers: conservation threatened
Cows: 1.3 billion

the solution here is to start eating wolves
