To who ever shot and killed those wolves. Thank you for lowering the overpopulated wolf numbers in our end of the state. Everone just keep your mouth shut now. It has been admitted by the feds, during a recent de-listing meeting here in Ely, that the wolf population is now duble what this area was expected to hold and support. If they are going to "regulate" the wolf, better hop to it. We have walking the alleys and digging in garbage cans here in Ely, and we are told [like in other areas up here] that we are not allowed to controll the problem, even if humans are threatened.....oh yeah? Thanks to whoever it was, and I`m glad you started the clean up. Ship a few packs into the metro area foe sme real fun.......Over population of deer for starters. They love`em down there so much, let them start dealing with them.

By the way, I`m not one that believes they should be killed off, for you knuckleheads that have no concept of what is going on up here. Just proper regulation and dispersion among the entire state.

Agreed, if they have too many of them, then they should be shot, but legally.

Just so you understand MNMan..... That is what the last de-listing meeting was about up here. The problem is in NOT doing management by the feds. The issue we have with the state management plan, is that it basicly cuts the state into 3 distinct wolf zones. Zone "A' would run from International Falls down to lower Virginia, and over to Two Harbors...that zone is where it would remain as it is now. You can not shot a wolf. Zone "B" would be a line about from Hinckley at an angle through the state up to Zone "A" you could shot a wolf if it is attacking cattle or pets. The REST of the state from there south, you can do what you must to protect anything you need to. Kind of like it is now.

Nobody up here was in favor of "wiping out" the wolf population at all. What it was about, was the fact our hands are tied with trying to deal with "non-management" as the Feds are dealing with it now. They admit to the state, that this area has not only recovered the wolf population, but it now has twice the number than can be supported naturally. This is causing some real problems up here. Without going much more into this, but to say....yes, we want a healthy wolf population, and we believe in co-existance. But when wolves no longer fear people, and are now wandering aimless through streets and in towns, camped at front doors [YES that is a fact], rumaging garbage, attacking pets on a leash within feet of a home, crossing the local get the picture here.....and we can`t do one thing about it except keep our mouths shut. We just want the same rights as others to protect ourselves, and our animals. But like you stated, we would rather do it in a legal way, and in a management form. THAT is being refused us. We are not very happy about it, as you most likely know by this report.

The email about this reward is widespread up here, and our response is to thank all those who keep their mouths shut. The reason....everyone knows "you" might be the next one that may have to "illegally" protect yourself or yours.

Peace to you and yours, and have a safe and happy new years eve,
