I did make my point, but you were to busy getting your religious feelings hurt. Wolves have been here for thousands of years and have every right to be here for thousands more.The problem with your post is it insinuates you as a know it all. Your comment adds nothing to the thread, simply that you disagree and find us as "A bunch of pious know it alls". While you may believe that, maybe instead offer your own opinion rather than attacking others views and calling names.

Look at human history. I appears that every time we have eradicated any species or imported another species to help control a pest we later find that our actions were in error. Species that we eradicate turn out to be beneficial, sometimes to the point of catastrophic. Look what happened in the middle ages where the cats were killed off because they were thought to the consorts of witches. As a result the rats multiplied to the point the the fleas carried by the rats caused the black plague decimating a huge portion of Europe's population, all because of the actions of a few causing mass panic. The question of wolves is much the same. let nature (ie, God) control the population and not man. Humans have a very poor track record when they try to control Nature or interfere with God's plan !!I am seeing posts that essentially, call for the eradication of wolves, Any of us that hunt and consider ourselves conservationists in any way and part of a bigger system than ourselves, see about as much sense in that, as the eradication of the American bison. The biological system that God created, is in a balance and has been for much longer than humanity has existed. I came to the conclusion that I will never forgive those that used governmental policy and business interests to decimate the bison and just hope that each of us can look at what we see as a nuisance species and still see God's place for them.
Yeah, yeah, I know the place for them is at the tip of my 130gn GMX bullet, but you folks know what I'm saying. Cheers
When my wife and I visited Australia we didn't SEE ANY wolves or grizzlies those who don't have to deal with them and the damage and Cost from losing cattle and horses to them find it easy to critizeDon't you see the irony in your argument
Kill for sport - just like you
Partly consume elk- just like many hunters do
Next you'll argue that their camo is better that yours, their long range abilities are unfair and they can see better at night.
I too am a hunter but many of you have flawed arguments. There appear to be a few scientists out there though & for that I am happy
Right, The Aussies don't have any grizzlies or our kind of wolves they do however have the smaller Kola Bears and Dingo's which travel in very large packs. The rabbits, kangaroos and dingo's cause a lot of damage every year much more that our bears and wolves do but they are protected !When my wife and I visited Australia we didn't SEE ANY wolves or grizzlies those who don't have to deal with them and the damage and Cost from losing cattle and horses to them find it easy to critize
I really wanted to stay out of this train wreck, but as humans encroach on wildlife habitat, which grows every yr, it becomes necessary for man to do the managing. Just like it is mans job to manage this planet. Whether the right philosophies or people are in charge, I cannot say, but I assume plenty.Humans have a very poor track record when they try to control Nature or interfere with God's plan !!
