" QUOTE " Let's see if I got this correct; They've been wandering in from Canada for 25,000 years, but forgot how, and needed to hitch a multi-million dollar ride from the USFWS.
Whose BS'ing who?
OK you wanna be a smart *** about this Lets go for it,
!) It would not have cost anything if WE as Hunters had not wiped them all out in the first place.
2) The USFWS have put in alot of money to bring back these Animals and that Money has come from Hunters and the likes fees.
3) It was Hunters and Trappers who wiped out these Animals because of the Money they could make Hunting and Traping.
4) So it is only right that the Money should come from the Source that caused the Problem in the First Place.
5) What WE as Hunters have to do is Stop being So Defensive about things and try being a bit More Honest about the Facts, Answer me this,,, IF I go and kill some one ( By What ever means ) Should YOU be the one who has to pay the Cost ( IE Go to Jail or Worse ) Answer NO and by Hunting WE become part of the Herritage Past and Pressent and how WE conduct our selves has a Huge effect on how History and people see us as Hunters along the Restrictions that are Placed upon us,
So going back to the Millions of Dollars that have been invested, The Hunters of the 1900s +/- a few years all but wipped out alot of the great herds and by the 1930s the last wolf was all but Gone Untill 1995 when they were re introduced. On here and many other places we read about how the Elk and Moose etc are nearly all gone and the Blaim is being put on the Wolf and yes they do kill alot of them, But back 200 years ago the the Great Herds could be seen for miles but now you need a scope or a Helicopter to see them. You cant blaim the Wolves for that because they were not around for over 55 years+ Now the Elk and Moose etc along with the Wolves managed to Survive for over 25000 years so much so they became the Great Herds. Now if the Wolves could not wipe them out in the past 25000 years then you need to see the bigger picture and that Blaim belongs to us, And as a Hunter I am part of the cause.
Now the Wolf would not have to hitch a ride at all if there was not a Bounty put on their heads in the first place and that Bounty was collected by those Hunters of the Past, So we as Hunters have to Pick up the Tab for our Past and that is done through the USFWS.
The facts are engraved in Stone.
Actually, I thought it a legitimate question given your nearly incoherent rant. Or rants at this point.
FACT: Wolves were present in the Rocky mountain states at the time of the transplant.They were there in numbers that were increasing (recovering) without a dime of anybodies money being embezzled.
Fact: American hunters haven't squawked about the money to preserve or better habitat, relocate indigenous species, or exercise restraint while those species recovered since about 1900. Pay to play doesn't mean forgo legitimate questions, blind subservience to government agencies, or suffering fools in silence.
Fact: It didn't take 60-70 million dollars to box a few wolves, and ship them south, but it seems to be missing from the Pittman-Robertson funds.
I'll give you one to look up-Google Washington Lynx Fraud. The USFWS, the USFS, and the Washington Wildlife Department got caught with their hands in the cookie jar, not only was no one prosecuted, raises and promotions were given. A small time job compared to the wolf transplant, but it's a quick read and shines some light on how Federal and State agencies operate these days
Their motivation was simple-stop all public use of the National Forests. It's not about Wolves, Lynx or science, it's about power, money, and corruption.
Laws have been broken, lies told under oath, and if you think that equals carved in stone you're the average voter Churchill spoke of as being the best argument against democracy.
