Сегодня День Святого Духа. Этот день напоминает нам о времени отпущенного нам для свободного выбора его использования. Тому кто поставил себя в позиционную сторону времени, можно рассчитывать, на……летальный исход….и .. исчезновение.. он сам становится временем прошлого, для тех кто его будет помнить.Князь_Цыцак

Gray wolfs have been here long before the Europeans came. These majestic animals should be protected from poachers and hunters like the American Bald Eagle, whales, elephants and rhinos to name a few.

My comment:

This is a cynical and misguided action that I assume is only possible because of the dilution of the staff of the US Fish and Wildlife Service during 8 years of Bush's deregulating fervor.

Wolves have a highly variable population owing to their nature as top predators. There needs to be a lot more of them, and over a much larger area, in order for them to be considered not endangered.

I spend a lot of time in Wolf country. I can tell you two things:

I spend a lot of time in Wolf country. I can tell you two things:

a) You almost never see them because they keep to themselves; and

b) Over the last three years I've never had a conversation with a local man that did not eventually turn to the wolves, during which he boasted that he and his friends had a "culling" trip planned where they were going to go to a particular piece of forest, find the wolves that live there, and shoot them out.

They are endangered and the Fish and Wildlife Service is not protecting them. I wonder if taking them off the endangered list is a way of avoiding

Fish-Game and Wildlife think they have the power of life and death with the wolves. They are wrong.

Gray wolves are part of the fabric of life of which we are a part. Do not delist them!

Gray Wolves were driven to extinction before by the follies of human interference and lack of understanding of nature. Wolves have not yet recovered from this forced extinction - it is unconscionable to put them in a position to be further decimated by the stupidity of human greed and fear.

Gray Wolves were driven to extinction before by the follies of human interference and lack of understanding of nature. Wolves have not yet recovered from this forced extinction - it is unconscionable to put them in a position to be further decimated by the stupidity of human greed and fear.

Because of the ranching industry's political clout, State and Federal wildlife managers kill entire wolf packs when a single sheep or calf may (or may not) have been killed by wolves -- even when the ranchers may foolishly have turned out their livestock in the midst of a wolf den. Eliminating domestic livestock grazing on public lands in wolf areas is one key step to reducing conflicts and ensuring the future survival of wolf populations - a critical goal.

Wolves are mandatory to sustaining the proper functioning of ecosystems by keeping prey populations in check and sustaining bio-diversity. Wolves normally take weak and sick animals, resulting in stronger and healthier herds. (continued)
