Wolf populations have to be managed the same as many other species. Even the Humane Society acknowledges that hunting is a viable management tool.

It was a hunt, not a trapping.
The wolves were not trapped first, spent a day or so in a trap, and then shot dear. They were just shot. I'll wager that the pelts wind up on the walls of the hunters and not on the fur market. I also suspect that the individual hunter wolf quota was ONE per hunter.

Try actually researching what you are commenting on dear. It will make you look smarter, and perhaps you may discover the real truth in the bargain.

I disagree with the writer's claim that wolves are shy.
They are elusive, but certainly not shy. They are a top predator. Top predators are most certainly NOT "shy". They are elusive because they hide from their prey as part of their stalk technique, not because they are shy. When they see their opportunity from their hiding places, they are FAR from "elusive" as well. They attack. And they sure as hell are NOT shy when they do ... they are deadly ... whether their prey has four legs, two legs, or wings.
Only people who are not familiar with wolves would think them shy.

<quoted text>How about managing human populations? All of these bible belt losers calling the result of unprotected sex a blessing lol. What did you think was going to happen?

Nature can take care of itself without some pussees going on a killing spree. Do you think the fat, camoflaged cowards are going to kill the oldest, sickest animal like nature would?

Of course not. The pathetic couch potatoes think murdering a virile animal with a powerful rifle equals them being virile and powerful.

Hunting is obsolete in first world countries. If you want meat, go to the grocery store. If you must hunt a wolf to prove you're a man - track down an alpha male with a knife, and I'll come piss on your grave afterward.
Actually, in addition to being a very efficient and cost effective way to manage animal populations, hunting is a viable industry in the US which generates $B to our economy annually. Hunters also fund nearly 100% of state managed conservation projects. My home state of Arkansas has more than 3M acres of protected habitat set aside as Wildlife Management Areas which has been purchased exclusively from $ generated from the sale of hunting and fishing licenses.

Obviously you're not a hunter and you have strong feelings about hunting but the truth is you have no idea what you're talking about, nor do you know what you're missing.
