    You make a point for all the serial killers out there! Maybe they could use that in they're defense; "You're honor, I was only doing my part to save the earth....you know, going "Green"."

    They were not introduced artificially any more than we were.

    Here is a funny one...

    Two groups of apex predators walked into an elk herd. The one less efficient, more regulated and more inclined to be lazy blamed the other for taking too much.

    I'm not saying the wolves are not or will not be a problem that won't have an affect on man, man's prey or other species. I just think this is a benefical testament to Mother Nature and her resilency through adaptation. Eventually the pack will be too large, or the herd too large, or city too large...each will force an adaptave change on the other.

    If you don't agree with their politics they're better off dead...? You're a quality human being.

    "Leave a light a footprint......"

    Celebrate diversity

    Makes me want to laugh and puke at the same time.

    Have you ever spent time outside of a manicured park?

    Hey Mumbles, who's Mother Nature here? Did they come back on their own? Or did we humans reintroduce them?

    I'm a firm believer that we, mankind, have not been a very good steward of what we've been entrusted with. I'm simply, again, agreeing with others like the Old Man, that evidence shows they typically become a problem. I don't like it anymore than you. It's just what the evidence proves. Say what you will, Montana is a prime example.

    Hey, while we're at it....let's start a campaign for getting our rivers restocked with the Squaw Fish! Why is there a bounty on them? Cause we love our steelhead...am I right?

    How is that any different than guys loving to hunt for elk or deer? I think it's called "double standard".

    I just want to know what Glenn Beck says about this issue. He is my other news source. Keith Olbermann too.

    I8, was this pack introduced? What do you know that I have not read about this pack being dropped off here by some bucket biologist? If the pack grows rapidly, kills indiscriminately and threatens other populations they can be regulated without being eradicated, no?

    I don't even know how to respond to a thread like this. I already know of a wolf that was stalking a hunter last year and he was barely able to get a shot off before it got to him. If you like to go camping in the woods, just keep an eye on the wife and kids....just sayin.

    I just contacted my naturalist friend who has monitored the Yellowstone packs every year since they were introduced. He knows them all by name.... Hopefully he will give me some insight into this a bit.

    OK, Ribka, you know nothing about me other than I presumably flyfish and occasionally post on this site. F... you. Rather than flaming you on this group, I'll PM you.
