    And any of the bison that try to winter outside of Yellowstone in Montana are usually shot because Montana has a hunting season on bison.  The ranchers make another bull shit claim that the bison pass brucelloses to their cattle, even though there's never been a documented case of a bison passing brucelloses to cattle.

    There are some good ranchers in Montana that know that there are many ways to prevent wolves from bothering their cattle, like having dogs around, but many of those ranchers are simply gun toting, fox news following, nature conquering red necks who have no business running a ranch anyway.

    And don't forget, many of those cows that get attacked by wolves or bears, are grazing on OUR public lands for unbelievably cheap prices.  Rancher welfare from corrupt politicians of over a hundred years ago.  Those are OUR lands, and I want to see a wolf on MY public lands rather than a damn cow!

      and I'm all for funding programs which would help ranchers deal with wolves.

      and those predation compensation programs are still in effect.

      everybody needs to read "wolfer".
