    More on the wolf front

    Over the holiday weekend, I knocked together a couple of interesting columns about two recent essays that peel back some of the romance from wolf advocacy and explain what hunters have to worry about....along with people who live where wolves may be headed.



    Wolf experience on Vancouver Island holds harsh lesson

    A newly-published essay about wolf predation on Vancouver Island by renowned Canadian researcher Valerius Geist an authority on deer and other wildlife is raising eyebrows and some hackles among Northwest outdoorsmen and women.

    Are we seeing beginnings of backlash over wolves?

    Call it coincidental timing or something else, but two essays have appeared in the past few days that have captured the attention of Northwest hunters, who seem prepared to fight back against what they feel is a tidal wave of wolf expansion that has not been very well thought through.

    I enjoy the beauty of Nature's bounty as much as anyone. In fact my fondest memories are of watching sea turtles and dolphins on the open ocean.

    But at some point too much is too much. The wolves have to be controlled just like any other critter.

    I've been long convinced that wolf expansion is part of a multi-pronged strategy to control the food supply.

    Hunter backlash begins over wolf plan adoption

    Unanimous adoption of a controversial wolf management plan by the Washington Fish & Wildlife Commission has ignited a firestorm in the hunting community, with concerns over the future viability of big game herds combining with a sense that the commission has turned its backs on sportsmen and women who pay the tab for wildlife management.

    Wolves should be managed, then the pelts sold.
    If total government control equals safety, why are prisons so dangerous?

    With confirmation the other day by the Alaska Department of Fish & Game that at least two wolves were responsible for killing a young high school teacher, the debate about wolf management in the Pacific Northwest has erupted anew.

    Let's reintroduce wolves into the District of Columbia.
