I love your work on the big screen but just cannot support your stance on the Grey Wolf introduced into Idaho. As I am sure you know the Grey wolf introduced into Idaho was never indigenous to Idaho. The Northern Rocky Mountain Wolf, however, was, yet those who decided to reintroduce wolves into Idaho made the decision to bring in a much larger and more aggressive species of wolf, which have wreaked havoc with the local ranchers and in some cases taken hunting dogs and pets as pray. Idaho is blessed with abundant big game and this much larger and stronger breed of wolf has had easy prey diminishing our herds of Elk, Deer, Sheep, Cows - big game and domestic livestock alike. For someone who does most of her hunting at the local grocery store, it is difficult for you to understand that someone has to calve, feed, raise and protect those animals for you and the rest of the nation to enjoy. The newly introduced Grey Wolf plays hell with our ability to feed our families and the rest of this hungry nation by selectively killing those cows and sheep we are unable to protect. Not to mention the big game we hunt to help feed our families.
I’m glad you have a soft spot in your heart for our wild life, as do I, however, you might change your mind with regards to the Grey Wolf if you saw a pack of these over sized killing machines kill several elk from one heard not to feed their hungry pups but to teach them to hunt kill and be aggressive, only to leave the carcasses to rot in the Idaho sun. Their bellies too full to eat any of the kill. It would turn your stomach to watch the killing process, I‘m sure.
