    Not one wolf researcher.

    There are wolf researchers that are extremely pro wolf, at Oregon and also working at Isle Royale. None of them have commented that I know of yet.

    I do recognize J B. I read Jeremy Bruskotter's blog comments often he goes by JB, he's an assistant professor of whatever in ohio. His last project was trying to prove the media is anti wolf. Doubt he makes full professor.

    What researcher shot wolves? You mean darted? They like to pose with the drugged wolf. Scientist trophy hunting. You know a lot of the original introduced wolves were caught in leg hold traps. Safe and non injurious.

    The Salt Lake article of course only had quotes. You boxed a good one. You went through the motions of objectivity. Why not go ahead and read what the folks at USFWS have to say?

    How big is your personal carbon footprint?

    •  Here's JB's comment from a few minutes ago (0+ / 0-)

      Where did you read that Dave Mech says that wolves were restored to 80% of the habitat that they could occupy? I’d like to see that article.
      JB is so informed he is clueless as to what the world most renowned wolf researcher has to say on the de listing.

      I laugh and laugh. So many people only talk to the like minded and then when reality rears it's ugly head.. oops. Like that poster upthread that thought no one had ever been eaten by a wolf in North America. Good Grief.

      Although wolves roam only a small portion of their historical range, it's about 80 per cent of the area they realistically could be expected to occupy today, said David Mech, a leading wolf expert and senior scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey in St. Paul, Minnesota.

      Even without federal protection, wolves are likely to migrate into several Western states, Mech said. The primary barrier to expansion isn't lack of habitat or prey, but human intolerance, he said.
      "The primary barrier to expansion (in the remaining 20% available) isn't lack of habitat or prey, but human intolerance" Are you working towards greater tolerance or exacerbating divisions?

      Your opinions are entrenched and never vary from supporting the government.

      I read what USFWS has to say and did not choose to repeat their propaganda in my diary. Write your own diary.

        I like government. "I'm from the government and I'm here to help" Love that stuff. The government as bad as it is, is the most knowledgeable honest broker in the deal. I'm a Democrat, I believe in government.
