Less one wolf pack - WI

I'm not sure how I feel about this. Well, I know I don't condone the Fed on it but I can see the other side.....sorta. Than again I'm not a farmer or local.

Relocate....capture....feed em humane society dogs....No. Let's just take out the whole pack :o And if you escape the first slaughter we'll hunt you down.

TOMAH, Wis. - The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has killed a pack of wolves in western Wisconsin because the animals were becoming too accustomed to humans.
The state Department of Natural Resources says the agency killed six wolves that had staked out a territory in Jackson, Monroe and Juneau counties.
DNR biologist Adrian Wydeven says the agency is looking for one or two more wolves from the pack, known as Bear Bluff. Wydeven says the wolves were showing a lack of fear toward people. He says no human has been attacked, but wolves from the pack have killed three dogs and injured four others this year.
Wydeven tells the La Crosse Tribune that once wolves lose their fear of humans, it's very difficult to change that behavior.

I support "taking out" stupid people who put out food for wolves and other wild animals. (Don't know if that happened in this case but it certainly does happen.)

The wolf debate is certainly a hot one in Wisconsin. Not sure exactly where I stand, either.

Wouldn't all these things result in even less fear of humans?

I realize some of your post was in jest.

I'm all for the wolves but, if they don't have an plenty of animals to eat I can see a human being an easy meal and more so that humans dog. Coyotes also eat the family dog as well. I'm also not familiar with wolf issue and the counties in wis. involved.

well, theres more deer in wisconsin than ever, but ther are also more dogs and people. its not a question of enough food, but of which food they will choose.

like every species, they will conserve energy for making little woves by transitioning to eating the easier catch....er' so says that Darwin guy, or something.

by that principle, though, i don't see how killing a bunch is going to solve the problem. i think either wolves or humans (with all their animals etc) will end up being here, and not both.
