    Wildlife officials consider wolves to control elk

    This is headline on AP news. Feds are considering using wolves to control elk populations in COLORADO. BACA national wildlife refuge. And of course the environmentalist are supporting. I really hope this never happens like it has here in Wyoming. It has destroyed some of our game populations. http://bit.ly/x5FxbA

    Seeing some of the comments in the article just makes me cringe like, "Right now, it's a question. You have a lot of elk, a lot of people would say you need a large predator."

    My question is what is wrong with recreational hunters being used as a management tool or that, "large predator" mentioned instead of introducing a predator that will spread outside the boundary to control the elk herds?

    I know the areas are closed to hunting but what if they opened it up to recreational hunting just short term to control the herds. I'm hoping they learned from Yellowstone and can pick a better plan this time around.

    Kevin I agree. These large predators don't just stay were they are released. Eat there quota of elk and then disappear. These sobs seek and destroy and travel. Some of our moose herds just don't exist anymore. Irritates the hell out of me

    There has been a lot of comments like this for the same situation that exists in Rocky Mt. NP.

    Anti-hunters love this solution. They get to see furry, mangey wolves, and hunters get supplanted by another predator.

    To citizens of Colorado:

    Call your congressman. Email your congressman. Do the same for your governor. Organize a rally. Tell your friends to do the same.

    Sadly, even if you succeed, I think it is only a matter of time before wolves are there anyway.
