As Colorado nears the precise implementation of its fairy-tale wolf “reintroduction” plan, some inconvenient and ugly realities of plunging the massive predator again into the combination of recent society are taking heart stage. First, it appears that evidently wolves harbor extreme contempt for home canines they usually don’t discriminate whether or not the canine or canines in query are working animals or pets; the tip consequence? Fido loses badly.
It appears we’ve seen one thing related in Colorado already this 12 months with the cougar killing spree going down on the state’s entrance vary. Hmmm, I see a sample right here.
Second, in an attention-grabbing try to guard its beloved, transplanted wolves, Colorado is implementing a 60 mile buffer zone with the bordering states of Wyoming, Utah and New Mexico. Sixty miles? That’s laughable as younger wolves or displaced wolves will journey a lot additional than that searching for house ranges or appropriate habitat. It’s additionally precisely how the North Park wolves answerable for killing canines and livestock bought to Colorado within the first place.
To me this try to supply a safe-space shows huge ignorance on the a part of Colorado FWP and is the very same pondering that led to the wolf “reintroduction” run amuck within the Better Yellowstone Ecosystem. Mix stated ignorance with seemingly willful conceitedness that they know find out how to handle a species that’s been vacant from the panorama for no less than two generations of biologists and also you’ve bought the makings of a Shakespearian tragedy; Macbeth – ambition – ignorance – conceitedness – catastrophe. . . you get the image.
I’ll be within the again with my popcorn.
