Re: “Canis Lupus

If we are really interested in keeping the wolf population in check, why don't we just use hormonal implants in the females or nueter the males? I know there are enough people who care about animals that we could raise the money and put in the time to do this every year. A year ago I called Fish and Game to suggest this, and the person who took my call snidely remarked "You can just send that money to me" and went on to insinuate that I wanted to save the wolves so I could "view them" as if they were for entertainment purposes. It seems our department of Fish and Game is not considering the welfare of the wolves, but rather the entertainment of Idaho's citizens, and sadly, many think it is fun to kill.
Shooting wolves is particularly evil as they are members of families and have very strong emotional bonds; just one kill shatters the lives of the entire pack. It is unfathomable to me why we would re-introduce wolves just so we can shoot them. The entire ordeal is a horrible tragedy. The Idaho lawmakers who allow this and the people who are participating in this bloodsport should be full of remorse and shame for the pain they are inflicting on these animals.
To shoot animals for food is one thing, but to kill sentient beings for sport is just plain cruelty and should be illegal. How were these people who enjoy torturing animals raised to have no compassion?
