Wolf rules

I see that stupidity and emotion have take the place of science and logic in the battle over protecting wolves again. The sad part is that of the ones making all the fuss most don't even live in the state or area where the wolves are.

What they are doing is in a way declaring war on the wolves, because now that the state can't control the population people will take the matter into their own hands and start shooting wolves on sight. Sort of "shoot-shovel and shut up". Having wolves in reasonable numbers is fine, but the numbers have to be controlled so as not to get out of hand and become a problem. When they start preying on pets and livestock they need to be controlled in one way or another.

Perhaps the excess wolves should be live trapped and released in the metropolitan areas where the people live who seem to love them so much. That way they can enjoy them as much as we do. It just isn't fair that we are the only ones who get to enjoy the pleasure of their company.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will publish a rule Friday designating wolves in Michigan and Wisconsin as "endangered."

I wonder how many have just disappeared in the last couple of months. Wait until next hunting season when even more of them will disappear. When these fools think they are protecting them, all they are doing is making people take care of the problem on their own instead of having a controlled season. I have a feeling that more wolves will be killed now than if there was a season and licensed hunters. Now they are just fair game for anyone who wants to do some target practice on them. There are enough people who are not happy about the wolves to begin with and now this may be the last straw and they will take it out on the wolves.

If you don't like the wolves, move out of the country. If you don't like ducks, don't live by the lake...I am pretty sure, wolves do not want to intrude on your homes, they hunt deer, rabbits, squirrel, and I am pretty sure would take seclusion over your backyard anyday. Maybe quit over hunting the deer, so nature can do it's thing? No, I moved out of WI, but I still believe and take the side of wildlife over humans anyday. If your pet gets eaten by a wolf, then walk him on a leash, take care of them a little better and out of a harmful situation. The nature of the beast is to eat. You over hunt their food supply, they will invade looking for yours. The more building, encroaching on their territory, the more they adapt to you, same as bears. If you live in the country, how many feed apples to the deer all year long? Then hunting season, you don't have to go more than 500 feet outback and fill your freezer. Don't you think that brings the wolves to your door as well? You take all their deer, and they see your dog, even easier. Quit blaming the beast.

Old Scout: I agree with this statement you made about wolves: " Having wolves in reasonable numbers is fine, but the numbers have to be controlled so as not to get out of hand and become a problem. When they start preying on pets and livestock they need to be controlled in one way or another. "

They also prey on people.....which isn't ok. I know some families that won't let their small children outside to play alone either because they have wolf packs down the road? I don't know what someone might say about this...but I don't think a "leash" is the
answer for a child??? like a dog???so what do we do about that ..kind of issue???

First of all I get a kick out of the people that don't even live in Wis. telling us how we should live with the wildlife that inhabit the area. :roll:

I have always thought that the way to control the wolf population would be to trap them and turn them loose in the urban areas down south (Madison, Milwaukee, Chicago etc. this would also help control the pet population in those areas) so that the people that think it is so wonderful to have wolves living among them can enjoy them as much as we do.

That would reduce the wolf population in the northern part of the state and share the wealth with those who are not fortunate enough to live in God's country.

I was watching the Chan. 12 news tonight and the story about the pet dog that was killed in it's own yard by a wolf. I felt sorry for the pet owners and it is a real shame that legally they couldn't do a thing about it. I guess the way I see it, is if that was to happen in my yard with my dog I would shoot first and worry about the legalities later. Protected or not people still should have the right to protect themselves and their property from harm whether it be from man or beast. :x

Use the three S method, " Shoot, Shovel and Shut-up".
