    where they come from. Schweitzer hates wolves, loves gun, and supports big oil. DK would be flaying him alive about 3 seconds after he got elected.

      of course, he'd hate wolves.

      I used to own a horse, and if a wolf threaten him, I'd shoot that wolf without remorse.

      I live in CT and respect Nature, but that doesn't mean my friends and I weren't going to protect our horses.  About 10 years ago we had a female coyote building a nest in our barn in the attic above the horses' stalls.  Her rustling was driving one of the horse nuts.  The stable owner had a friend who hunts and his friend and son tracked the coyote out into the woods until they found it and killed it.  Once they start nesting in a place, they will keep coming back no matter how far you relocate them.  Our philosophy was that we'd leave the wild animals alone, but as soon as they invaded the stable or posed a chronic threat to the horses, our horses got priority over the wild creature's life.
