    Because the liberal you are talking about is a made up person in your head. There is a bunch of gun owning, hunting, fishing, liberals in my family...including me. It's easy to fight a made up oponent in your head. None of us oppose trapping either. Liberals are a much less homgenous group than you seem to think.

    I never said that ALL PEOPLE THAT LIVE IN URBAN AREAS ARE LIBERAL you have apperently taken my comments out of context to further your misguided interpretation of the truth

    Why did this deteriorate into Liberals vs Conservatives? Can't we stick to the issue or subject as it were...? Remember? It's wolves in the Cascades...jeez...

    Good I am glad there are wolves there I do not care what it does to the hunting. It has been my experience that the people who complain about wolves are hunters who are unwilling to put forth the effort to get out where the good elk hunting is...

    Geez Roper, no doubt!

    Look, if in five or six years there's no problems from the wolves at all....then whatever, who cares right? My money's on that it will be sooner than that. Wolves (introduced into) in an area cause problems. That can't be denied. We can hope, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Again, check out the KSPS program on wolves. You can't make that stuff up, you just can't.

    Wolves introduced? Or re-introduced, or retaking what was once theirs. I remembering reading some report in a magazine (name)? about the deterioration and erosion of river banks in an area due to the elk and other wild life that were populating out of control and eating vegetation along the river banks. It use to be the wolves helped control the population, but the wolves had been hunted and flushed out of the region, and with no natural predators the elk and others were wrecking havoc on mother nature. Messing with mother nature brings unintended harms....let nature be. Nature = Balance

    Exactly! I think I read the same regarding Yellowstone. Overgrazing along the stream banks. One of the benefits of wolves, definitely. Now the willows grow, the streams are cooler, the trout are more abundant, and, larger.

    No Mumbles, I got it: The liberals vs. conservatives thing is a diversion. I think those of you opposed to wolves are just worried that your sexual partners (sheep, cattle) will go missing.

    I'm not at all opposed to wolves but I am EXTREMELY concerned about the missing sheep!
