Passions Ignite as Idaho and Montana Prepare for Wolf Hunts
Associated Press released a report analyzing some of opinions. Norman Bishop of Bozeman (MT) suggested the "Northern Rockies region could support up to ten times more wolves than the current population of 1,651 in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Oregon and Washington." Other voices included one from California who refers to wolves as "hounds of Hell..." As a New Yorker, I sometimes feel I'm at a disadvantage contributing to the wolf debate in the West so I was so pleased to read that some comments from Montana support wolf recovery. Perhaps the comment from CA watches too many horror movies...I expect the conversation will heat up further once Idaho releases their quota in late July. Stay tuned.
