I agree that they never should have introduced the wolves. Somebody must have bumped his head just prior to making that decision. It has been nothing but trouble ever since.I hunted wolves in Canada back in 2000 and the fellow I met up there, he was the one who snared that black female they released in yellowstone and she lived a long time, remember they were celebrating how many litters she raised.......she is gone now........he was paid $2000 US for every wolf snared that was healthy. All the locals thought us Yankees fell on our heads as they said "once they populate, you will wish you never released them".....they had a special kind of snare that would not choke down, would only go so far, so the wolf would be alive. You all want to know another smart predator, the grizzly has some brains also, any predator that lives 20-35 years acquires lots of experiences and gets very sharp.
