Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Wolves and Wyoming...:
Blaming the big predators for all problems ought to be a thing of the past. Considering the small number of wolves out there and the general competence of elk -- I'd imagine that none of them in good health are in terrible danger from wolves -- this shouldn't even be an issue. I've read some of the old accounts of how wildlife populations were treated in the old days, and the prejudice didn't extend only to predators. Pioneer communities literally beat the bushes to drive wildlife into killing zones, with the intention of wiping of them out, thinking that wild animals competed with domestic animals for forage. Turned out they don't even eat the same things. We should be smarter than that now.
