nette i dont want to read the link .... i know it will just make me simultaneously upset and angry.
i just do not understand why our ranchers here in the states cannot use livestock guardian dogs to protect their sheep, goats, steer and whatever else they raise ?
if the farmers in africa can use anatolian shepherds to guard their sheep against cheetah and baboons and the other much more dangerous wildlife that is in africa ...... why can we not do the same ? pisses me off when there is a viable solution that does not include maiming and killing our beautiful wildlife and people wont use it to their advantage ...... GRRRRRRRR !!

i read the first paragraph and couldn't stand to read more it makes me so made that they are willing to just wipe out the wolves because they are getting in their way...ehy don't they stop moving in to the wolves area. it jsut makes me mad, we are going to overpopulate this world and then there will not be enough room for anything but skyscrappers...errr...sorry
Scout1- Thankyou so much for saying that. I've been working for the past two weeks reading Idaho's Conservation and Wolf Management Plan that was released in 2002. I've also been reading the Nez Perz Wolf Management Progress Report for 2004 along with the bill that the federal gov. just past to give control of the Wolf Conservation and Management to Idaho Fish and Game and other Idaho officals. The same people that stated "we will get rid of this wolf problem by any means nessary."
Ok, two people from Idaho have spoken up that they are against what thier state goverment is up too. I can't believe that there are only two people from Idaho that feel this way. I live in Washington state and I know many people here that have signed a petistion telling the Idaho Gov. that we want them to protect the wolves as they have promised to do. I can promise you that if this was going on here in Washington I would be on the state capitals door step beating on the door until someone listened. As it is, I have told my work and my family, that if need be I will be going to Idaho capital myself.
I'm sorry. This is something I'm very passionate about. It makes no sence to bring back a spiecies from the brink of extinction, just to turn around and repeat the sins of the past. I am only one person. I don't repesent any organization or anything like that. I promise, I will not give up, I will not be ignored and I will do everything I can to save these animals.
The only thing I ask is that if you really do care about these animals take a stand! It does not matter if you are an adult or minor...YOUR VOICE MATTERS!!!
Write letters, make calls...educate yourself with the facts. The only way to stop bad things from happening around us is to let the powers that be know that we disapprove of what is being done....YOUR VOICE MATTERS!! Don't let any state or federal goverment make you think that it doesn't.
