Re: “One Arrested at Idaho Statehouse Pro-Wolf Demonstration

Humans are so stupidly selfish, short-sighted and greedy. We want to kill off everything we don't understand, don't like or which might be inconvenient, even though, in reality, those creatures (like wolves) are essential for the running of the planet.

Wolves have every bit as much (if not more) right to be here than we do, with our resource-hungry, destructive, unsustainable, spoiled lifestyles. Wolves drive biological diversity, healthy ecosystems and improve herd health and vigor. The opposite of human-effects on wildlife populations.

Humans, on the other hand, are the only species in the history of the planet who will utterly devastate our own home and every other living creature in it, for greed. Or in this case, cattle. Cattle which are non-native, destructive, invasive and have no right being released onto our public lands -

I (and millions like me) have every right to wilderness, to wolves and other wildlife, to open spaces and vibrant, biologically diverse forests and a healthy planet. Yet the small-minded, the fearful, the self-serving and pandering, like Butch Otter, steal from us.

The complex biological diversity this planet had been blessed with has already been diminished by our ignorant, greedy actions. And we're already suffering the consequences but are too blind and pigheaded to see it.

The world is NOT about us. We are like spoiled children, wanting our way, with all the willfulness and petulance (and even temper-tantrums) of a toddler who wants his way no matter what. We're running ram shod over Creation even though, in truth, we have no idea what the heck we're doing.

Leave the wolves alone. No one with any education believes your horror stories, they are tired and trite. Loose and feral dogs are a bigger danger to children, pets and livestock than wolves, coyotes, mountain lions or bears. Fence your livestock, use range riders, fladdery, livestock-guarding dogs. Not lethal force.

Lethal force as a first defense is the first sign of a small, weak mind.

This is about bigger issues than just wolves. Our intolerance will be our undoing. We can't get along with other species and we can't get along with each other.

Maybe our change needs to come from within, not by lashing out against nature.
