  •  I can see how complicated it is to have (0+ / 0-)

    state by state protection with different rules for each state instead of one rule for the country. There's nothing to stop a hunter from poaching in one state where wolves are protected then moving their carcasses across the line into a state where it's shoot on sight for most of the year.

    The more complicated the rules are, the easier it is to break them and claim ignorance of the law. Which seems to be the intent. The agency charged with getting the statistics USFWS is the one making the rules. They can say there are 1,000 wolves in an area and base the bag limits (if any) on that figure. Who can dispute their figures?

      aren't familiar with wildlife management in America.

      Speculating about wildlife biologists lying about numbers is kinda out there, just sayin.

      How big is your personal carbon footprint?
