Following the removal of Endangered Species Act protections from gray wolves in 2011, the state of Idaho has waged an increasingly ugly assault against these animals.

We should nurture compassionate thought. Since we wish to live, we should not kill any other living being. Furthermore, the karma of killing is understood as the root of all suffering and the fundamental cause of sickness and war, and the forces of killing are explicitly identified with the demonic.

The highest and most universal ideal of Buddhism is to work unceasingly for permanent end to the suffering of all living beings, not just humans.

Here was my quick response to the ABC propaganda about wolf numbers remaining steady despite the hunts of this past year:

"Not exactly true.
Montana numbers have been reduced, Idaho numbers reduced, even Yellowstone numbers reduced. Minnesota numbers reduced.
Only dispersal into Oregon, Washington and the continuing dispersal into Wisconsin and Michigan have assisted those numbers, because the persecutory hunting ha snot yet occurred in those places, or at most for only one or two years.

There are less wolves in ANY state than in a single human urban area of 6000.
It is impossible, apparently, to find out just how many cities of 6000 there are in the USA, but there are 20,000 towns of over 30,000, so perhaps we might multiply that figure by 10 in a wild guess. Humans have a far huger ecological footprint per individual than does a wolf.
The huge state areas composing the Northern Rockies wolf population segment are Eastern WA and OR, Idaho, Montana, WYoming, on which there is much federal public land - largely National Forest, which belongs to the US as a WHOLE, and NOT to the states which are trying to near-eliminate the wolf, have ONLY 1674 wolves, according to the most accurate estimate.
Minnesota, which had well over 3000 wolves in a STABLE population for over a decade, before delisting and killing, now has 2200, and the other two great Lakes states with any wolves at all, MI and WI, have about 1450.
Almost none of you live in an area in which the human population is that small,
And almost none of you live in areas where the human popuation is as low as 5300, the approximate number of wolves in the Rockies and Great Lakes combined.
If you've ever been to AZ and NM, as have I, the 75 small "Mexican" wolves in those two states equals none per square mile.

Hunters hate wolves because the wolf changes the behavior of wild ungulates, making them act less like congregating cattle eroding river bottoms and presenting themselves like cattle as targets. Even though the high-powered rifles make it easy to shoot things over 1/2 mile away, the immense masses of hunters want their targets to be rather immobile and in crowds.

There's much more, on the corrupt use of wolf killing as political tools by those you elect, and the (recently propagandized) rage of the public lands welfare ranchers (Animal Unit Months charged by BLM and Forest Service are a public loss, as cattle and sheep overgraze YOUR lands at rates low as 1/7 the market rate for grazing on private lands) attempting to prevent restoration of healthy intact, reduced-erosion ecosystems.

The massive increase in water-borne parasites in the USA is directly due to overuse of the land by ranchers, who have a tradition stemming from the original British nobility who saw the free grazing opportunities available in the US West in the 1800s after the bison and pronghorn were killed off, and the grizzly, wolf, coyote, vulture, hawk, eagle, and others starved by the incursion.
It was those large cattle interests who poisoned their way to profit, and who so fiercely hated the US federal government. Their legacy is the poisonous mining, the fencing, stream erosion, the groundwater loss and water pollution to which the West is heir.

1674 wolves in all the Northern Rockies? Other large mammals with populations that tiny suffer from inbreeding, and are justly recognized as being in extreme jeopardy of extinction from all causes."

It is all worse than you know.
There are many more poachers, some successful especially due to hunting technology. They do not report their actions to those managing the wolf for any agency, state or fed.

Ranchers learned the value of shoot, shovel and shut up, for their liesure time guning when the wolf was first listed under ESA.
cowboys everywhere seem mostly to use their sightings to grab a rifle and kill. This broups, includes people who offroad for sport, truckers I have met, and those of every job sporting the fashion and buying guns in the West. You can meet them in any bar or restaurant or even school in many states.

People who want guns want them for one reason : to kill something.

There are, true, many subsistence hunters, many of whom draw back at the idea of killing a wolf, but most still support the politicians who move the killing of the wolf into law and regulation.

Lethal "management" of native wild species must be ended. SUbsistence hunting is and should be personal choice. The wolf is not a target upon which humans subsist.
