Western environmentalists oppose wolf delisting
I’ll probably upset a lot of folks as I declare the issue with re-establishing wolves as pure stupid. I know the environmentalist and the animal lovers continue to pee in their pants over the placement of the predatory canines in wilderness areas such as Yellowstone. However, what they will never tell the public is how wolves are capable of decimating a heard of elk, caribou or the number of moose.
In the lower forty-eight there is no worry about wolves going after caribou – no caribou. But there are many other tasty meals hoofing about for easy pickings. Society has moved on from the 1870’s and wolves should not be forced upon society. It is just a matter of time until wolves attack and devour a child.
Wolves will attack the newborn elk, eat briefly at the entrails and leave the carcass largely untouched while they attack another newborn – consider this visual impression. I guess we should be pleased that the wolf lovers do not seek to re-introduce the timber wolf to areas such as Kansas City, Chicago, Minneapolis, etc.
