Seems Christopher Wolf, a postdoctoral scholar in the College of Forestry at Oregon State University in Corvallis. is proposing we make 191,500 sq miles a sanctuary for Wolves. This amounts largely as federal lands in the following states California, Oregon, New Mexico, Washington, Nevada, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado and Utah. Just looking to offer an opportunity to weigh in on the matter. Though to be honest I am unclear as to the options to weigh in.

OSU Forestry school was destroyed in the mid 2000s. Now they'll give a sheepskin to anyone.

Shouldn’t they be able adapt through evolution? The environment is placing stressors on them. Evolutionary processes should be kicked in and working.

And they will prosper and remain harmlessly within those bounds.

Seems a lot of preservationists have moved into what used to be conservation careers.

Post Docs are usually PhD's that can't find a real job.

Being a Utah resident

I'd much rather see elk calves.......deer & antelope fawns

Private livestock owners will agree

Wolves need to be kept very well in check

Most people I know will consider a wolf a big coyote

Poor wolves.

Who is protecting the elk and the deer and the livestock?

Where are these post doctorate scholars at OSU?

That's a big chunk of land, much larger than the entire state of Montana.

Wolves are adapting quite nicely to people and urban areas as they move 8nto central and southern wisconsin, much to the surprise of all the biologists and wannabes who said they could 9nly survive in near wilderness areas. Can't wait until Madison and Milwaukee are enjoying them as much as we do in the northern part of the state!

Anyone with a brain who see's the 90% drop in ungulate populations in my favorite summer spot - mountainous ID, would advocate for complete extermination.

Washington DC is already a huge wolf sanctuary. What more do they want? But I hope each greenie personally protects a wolf. Maybe the wolf can wear them as body armor.

They have wolves in nw south dakota occaisionally but what they don't have is ranchers dumb enough to talk about it. Sss is alive as a doctrine among those who have learned from their neighbors.

The trouble is, you don't just run out and kill a wolf. They're very hard to come by. Very few are taken by hunters primarily after deer or elk. In Idaho, you can buy an unlimited number of wolf tags and the price is very low, $11 for residents, yet the wolf numbers are growing. More are taken by trappers but there are too few trappers to thin them out.


Sin wouldn't be so attractive if the wages were paid immediately.

I don't have a problem with the wolf huggers creating sanctuary.

But I have a HUGE problem with them doing it on public lands with our tax dollars, and the infringement it has on lands already historically leased to ranchers, who suffer the most collateral financial damage due to these programs, as well as the wildlife and hunting issues. mad

If they want a sanctuary.... Fine. Buy a bunch of land, high fence it, and do as you please. But don't force that crap on our public lands.

Seeing the wolf devastation here in northern MN I can relate first hand.
With all the holy protections given wolves these days here no one animal lover is any the better off nor has seen any more or experienced any more wolf interaction than any other time.
The only tangible result of the explosion in our states wolf population is the ungulates have been devastated, livestock predation has increased tremendously, and other canines including domestic dogs are being attacked and killed in greater numbers.
Then again, with no ungulates to hunt our moose season has been long cancelled and the number of deer hunters is dropping fast. No big game to hunt, no need for big game seasons, no need for guns eh?
I think there is a long game here and I think the article/topic at hand is pushing western states in that direction as well.
Wolves are expanding just fine as is, pay no attention to that man behind the curtain….

These kinds of regulations always come from those who have no skin in the game.
