When a species is finally thriving because of protections under the Endangered Species Act, that is a success! It’s not a finish line. Hunting wolves for sport is just being cruel. Claiming wolves are eating too many deer is false. Wolves and deer existed long before man showed up in the picture. Claiming wolves are eating too many livestock animals, or family pets, is saying the wolves are more intelligent than man. We are the top dog in the animal kingdom, and we are the most adaptable to change. It’s our job to figure out protections without resorting to killing off a beautiful, magnificent animal species.
