    The sheep must get very nervous when you're around.

    Don't worry it's catch and release only!

    For the record, I could care less really. Like I said, I'm with Roper. Why does it always have to become an "us vs them"? That goes for both sides.

    My point is that they become a problem when introduced, re-introduced, whatever. Not picking sides like some are here, I'd like to think I'm smarter than that.

    I wonder if the word "Brilliant" will be used should they become a problem like they have everywhere else? Personally I hope not, but we'll see.

    Arguing with the "icons" of this forum is like wrestling with a pig in the mud. After a while, you realize the pig enjoys it.

    Wolves! How freaking cool is that!

    If they wanted to do that they should have gotten here before me! :)

    Are you trying to imply that the tribes are not men?

    And now that we all wear water wings in King County, we ain't likely to be going anywhere! :)

    Fuck! We're all nervous when he's around...:)

    Wait, I thought this debauchery was limited to free-range hooved animals like sheep and cows. Pigs too? You're all sick.

    Clearly, wolves are liberals, deer are conservatives, and elk are... teabaggers?

    Bitterroot has a pair of velcro hip waders. He's admitted this much around a camp fire. I think he has more secrets to reveal...and I'm not sure I want to hear about them.

    BTW: Family members over in the Blue Mtns of SE WA recently saw several elk calves killed alongside a gravel road -- hit by farm pickup trucks. Clearly its time to declare open season on Ford F150s to save the elk! They kill indiscriminately and don't even eat what they kill!:rofl::rofl:

    You make a point for all the serial killers out there! Maybe they could use that in they're defense; "You're honor, I was only doing my part to save the earth....you know, going "Green"."

    They were not introduced artificially any more than we were.

    Here is a funny one...

    Two groups of apex predators walked into an elk herd. The one less efficient, more regulated and more inclined to be lazy blamed the other for taking too much.

    I'm not saying the wolves are not or will not be a problem that won't have an affect on man, man's prey or other species. I just think this is a benefical testament to Mother Nature and her resilency through adaptation. Eventually the pack will be too large, or the herd too large, or city too large...each will force an adaptave change on the other.

    If you don't agree with their politics they're better off dead...? You're a quality human being.

    the other place it was mentioned was olympic national park, where there was some talk of reintroducing wolves a few years back.

    "Leave a light a footprint......"

    Celebrate diversity

    Makes me want to laugh and puke at the same time.

    Have you ever spent time outside of a manicured park?
