    Predators of what, Benny? Prey animals that we introduced relatively recently that have no business being on that land in the first place? God forbid a couple of dimwitted walking sides of beef get eaten by animals who actually belong there.

    Cattle ranching has made more progress in destroying the west than just about anything else, nearly as I can tell.

    Ranch on your own land and you can do what ever the fuck you want.

    Ranch on our land and you respect predators that keep much of the other herd animals in check.

    People love wolves. I love wolves. Down here in the land of yuppies and weed, we really have no plan for the wolf introduction. I'm always conflicted on welfare ranching as it isn't a real good use of resources but it does protect open space. I think the only guarantee is that the cow punchers will shoot, shovel and shut up.

    I like the back and forth on this thread. It's got that Pivot vs. other bindings passion vibe going.

    I’ve lived in the west my entire life. There are coyotes, wolves and cougars in my neighborhood and behind my house. I personally haven’t seen the wolves but someone took pictures of them on the hillside behind my house. I’ve had personal encounters with coyotes and cougars. My dogs got tangled up with a cougar and my cat got mauled by a coyote. I’m cool with it.

    Don't worry, the wolves will be fine. Wolves breed prolifically. They are not in any danger of disappearing from the landscape. Worst case scenario for wolves is too many wolves. It causes public outcry among a significant segment of the population, not to mention powerful business interests, and leads directly to situations such as this, which are best avoided if you truly care about wolves.

    Always good clickbait though.

    agreed. never mind the whole methane deforestation thing.

    yep. So, CO voters passed wolf reintroduction (last year?). I wonder how that plays out for wolves who are reintroduced on those same public lands.

    CO generally a free range 'fence out' state I think, so if you ranch private lands you gotta fence the predators out?

    I wonder how ranchers protecting animals (private and public) will mix with legally required wolf reintroduction. Will have front row seating up here.

    As a child, I signed a petition for reintroduction into Yellowstone. I have no regrets. My family, which includes (non-public-land) ranchers going back 5 generations, reveres wolves but also understands wildlife management.

    Humans manager other wildlife populations. Why should wolves be special? Because they remind you of Fido?

    Wolves will be a disaster for CO state public lands and will accelerate fees-for-all and fee increases.

    If you don't know why, then you don't understand the issue in Colorado.

    There's a pretty big difference between wildlife management and killing for sport.

    21 dead wolves so far. NW Yellowstone

    If you don’t want to coexist with certain animals in what is currently or once was their natural habitat maybe move somewhere else FFS.

    Personally, I have fond memories of sitting in my hot tub underneath the stars on quiet, snowy winter nights, and hearing the wolves howl to each other from the ridge across the river from us. Utter tranquility. This was just a few miles outside that NW corner of the park, so the title stuck out to me. I never did encounter any on my many hikes, although I'm pretty sure I've come across a den or two in the forest where my otherwise incredibly fearless dog said "Eff you, I'm not going in there!" when we were out bird hunting. She either sensed wolves or maybe it was a griz. Bones everywhere. Either way, I heeded her warning and backed out of the area. Interesting how they can be so prolific in the area, yet wolf attacks on humans in North America have been EXCEEDINGLY rare. No documented kills either since maybe like the freaking 1800s if that. Definitely a creature to be respected, but I don't think there's much to be afraid of either.

    If you're a rancher, toss some donkeys or llamas in the herd. Maybe a couple Great Pyrenees for good measure. The herd will survive. Even so, sure, a rancher has a right to protect his herd by any means necessary, but what I DON'T get is non-ranching hunters killing/trapping wolves for fun. Besides, trapping is a totally bitch method IMO.
