The point was made that this legislation states that once the gray wolf is removed from the endangered list it cannot be put back on if hunters reduce their numbers again. In affect this bill is calling for the complete annihilation/extinction of the species all because the wolf is a predator. Plus there's all the bad press wolves have gotten over the years. For example, several big bad wolf characters from Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, Peter and the Wolf, and The Boy Who Cried Wolf among others. Were taught to believe that wolves are out and out killing machines. We are rarely shown that puts wolves in a good, positive light. Wolves are not as bad as is believed. Yes, they're predators, but they kill to eat, and that's different from humans killing just to kill.
