  •  You have to look at the map in Wyoming (10+ / 0-)

    Wyoming has promised to keep ten breeding pairs outside of Yellowstone.

    Have you been to Wyoming? It's pretty darn big. Lots of room to roam.

    The Yellowstone ecosystem is 18 million acres alone. The wolves in the park will be protected by nature of the park boundaries (no hunting, unless they cross over)

    The policy in Wyoming labeling the wolf as a predator species that can be shot on sight, at any time, is not a science-based policy. It is a bloodlust policy with little relevance towards humanity.

    Basically, Wyoming plans to keep the wolves in Yellowstone, like a zoo. It's simply not a science based policy, but another example of  industry telling local officials and even Washington D.C. what to do.

    •  Interesting where hunting licenses will be issued (3+ / 0-)

      According to the article, the south and eastern borders of Yellowstone. Sounds like they will issues licenses so the hunters with the most wolf-hate can sit right outside of the park and shoot them as soon as they stray out.
