My God, what monsters - I hope they all die a horrible death, that some plague kills them and all who have had a hand in this wicked and callous slaughter. I have come to one conclusion, that anything and everything that happens to and with animals, we are the culprits!

This is terrible and should be prevented. Once again man is invading the animals' territory and then has no other way but to kill them because of the resulting conflict of interests...

Our state and federal governments, livestock (especially cattle) ranchers are low life scum for alowing the slaughter of wolves. Their natural prey is gone because of hunters and habitat loss. Stop blaming wolves and basically all animals (livestock excluded) for everything. I hope karma happens.

No, they didn't need to be wiped out.

Once again the rancher involved had for long refused to consider use of nonlethal methods to deter predation on his welfare ranching on public lands (sufficient stats on my assertion exist to use the adjective).
Other ranchers attempted to assist in persuasion to such methods but he, as is hinted at from bits quoted here, persists through irrational hatred of the wolf, a native species with far more right to live and thrive on the land than he.

I made a mistake in noting this biased editorial, and hope that others will refuse to note it, after reading.

The point of posting is to keep apprised of the actions of the other side and their reasons for them. If we want the wild of this world to survive then we must know what the opposition wants so that we can seek a common ground from which we can convince them that protecting the wild is in their own best interests.
We assume that their motivation is greed, which is probably true for many, while for some it may be a matter of survival. For generations these people have had access to range areas that are now the planned or current homes of wolf packs. If we cannot come up with a plan for them to coexist we will be left with an adversary that will simply take any opportunity to dispose of any wolf they see, legally or otherwise.
Just as we have seen with poaching of other large species, worldwide, where the laws meant to protect them do not matter if there is not the manpower to enforce them. So it is here with our own endangered species. There is an old saying that rings very true here and that is, “Know your enemy.”
So, note articles and share them with the explanation that these are the heartless beliefs of the opposition that we need to defeat. Tell your friends in support of the wild, that this is what we are up against. If you are going to play chess you must know the board and the placement of all of the pieces.
