    This post is about not using an emotional and scientifically untrue basis to manage wolves. The general public has been misinformed by polemicists such as Mowat who are willing to use information that is untrue to skew how we manage wildlife and predators in particular.

    Wildlife management is dictated mostly by scientists, not ranchers, not uninformed lay people, not hunters or the HSUS.  Most states have a commission appointed by the legislature that makes decisions about wildlife informed by their scientists. Legislatures and commissions are influenced by publicity. For best outcomes I wish for scientists working at divisions of wildlife to dictate wildlife management as much as possible. They usually do a very good job if left to their own devices.

    When a large number of people interested in wildlife have been misinformed it makes it very hard for scientists to do their work.

    Wildlife management should be done by scientists guided by sound scientific principals.
