  •  Wolves that attack livestock have never been (7+ / 0-)

    protected and the ranchers get compensated for their losses. But with the new state management ranchers will be able to shoot on sight any wolf, whether it's after their stock or not.

    Lifting the Federal protection is a death sentence to any wolves outside of protected areas like Yellowstone National Park.

      The three original states in the NRM have very strict rules that stop far short of re listing let alone extirpation. Other states such as OR and WA have their own very strict listings. I think it would be impossible to extirpate wolves under any circumstances today in the lower 48, or that's what the experts say. Without poison that is.

        If wolves wander outside of Yellowstone, it's certain death and mostly by humans, either by cars, traps, guns.
