Wolf Madness

YellowStoneFly has developed a new category: "Environment". What is "madness"? As per Wikipedia madness is "Insanity, a severe mental disorder." Within the last two years the moose, elk herds and many of the whitetail deer have all but disappeared from our state. The moose are all but gone. The deer numbers have decreased. Elk herds are still here, but their numbers are significantly down and they stay down low in the valleys all year.

Why? Rumor has it that "problem" wolves have been imported from areas such as Yellowstone Park and now they are proliferating. They now kill for fun and not food. They are even killing livestock and horses. Small children and domestic pets may be next. Their numbers must be culled.

Who am I to say that if you accidentally shoot (while protecting yourself of course) a wolf with a low caliber bullet in the gut that it will not be here tomorrow to kill and harass. The pack will make sure it disappears. They will eat their own. You know blogs are supposed to be controversial. Let us know what you think about these beautiful yet menacing creatures. Should we continue to allow this insanity?

Come and fly fish Idaho soon.
