Just stating the obvious. Anyone who has payed attention to elk and wolf populations knows that we only have about 10% of our (pre-wolf introduction)Montana elk herd left. Wolf populations have gone through the roof and it will not take 2 years for them to kill 80% of our remaining elk. There are a few pockets where isolated elk won't be found by wolves and some areas surrounded by ranchers who don't take any guff from wolves. Those will not be huntable populations. Wolves have killed elk for fun and practice. http://savewesternwildlife.org/sport-killing.html http://mtmultipleuse.org/endangered/wolf_pics.htm The intrduced Canadian Grey Wolf is NOT indiginous to the lower 48 states. http://savewesternwildlife.org/lower-48.html in fact they have killed the last 80 remaining American (smaller) Grey Wolves as was easily predicted. That's what wolves do. They kill weaker competing packs whenever they can. USFWS knew that would happen but went ahead with the elk extermination plan anyway.
