Back in the late 1950's through the 60's these same wolves did their damndest to destroy my dads sheep, goats, baby calves and anything else that they found tasty. My dad wan't a Big Corporate Ranch and neither are most of the ranchers today. There was a bounty on these wolves and I myself caused the demise of many of them and would do so today. Untill you know about the dangers of these animals, and not just economic, you should keep your mouth shut.

The New Mexico game commission has taken a much needed step in the right direction.With the Wallow Fire now burning in the wolf recovery area,it is a good time to stop and reconsider the program.This program should be relocated to Big Bend National Park and Old Mexico,where it has a better chance for success as the program in Yellowstone thrived.Com mon sense and compromise should prevail over biased agendas of all sides concerned.Taxpayers and wolves will be be better served when logic is served.

Hell no. Not nearly close. You must be one of them I mentioned. Without a doubt. Why dont you quit wasting tax payer dollars and get to work instead of sitting in a office on the tax payer reading a bible and scrolling google earth to only go and comment on ADN.

As time goes by ,it has become obvious to me that the Mexican Grey wolf recovery program was an attempt at creating a wolf eco-tourism industry in Arizona and New Mexico,similar to what Yellowstone National Park has.I believe this location was chosen because it is centrally located between population centers that have potential tourists.I have also come to believe that the Endangered Species Act has been used against the people of Catron County by USFWS and the Federal Government as retribution for past conflicts.Wolf recovery is essential to this scam,so that USFWS can save face and justify the waste of taxpayer dollars.It should be terminated or relocated to Big Bend and Old Mexico ,where the Mexican Grey wolf belongs.Is this program not about wolf recovery?Then,common sense dictates do what is best for wolves and human beings.

I want my state government spending my tax dollars on restoring an animal that will then cost me more dollars because it kills my livestock. Only a liberalism IS a mental dis-order type would think this was a good idea.

Well it has been 8 hours,how did you like USFWS's assessment of their experimental, nonessential wolf recovery program in the Blue Range Wolf Recovery Area?Did you read the conclusion? I thought it was very concise and to the point.Especially, where they said the location,failure to achieve required numbers,flaws in the program itself,and other sundry factors could lead to failure.This was done before the Wallow Fire ,a situation they said could compound the situation and lead to failure.Is it not time to rethink the program?Common sense says it is,so let's pick up the pieces and relocate the program to Big Bend and Old Mexico.It is the logical choice,if this is about wolf recovery and what is best for Catron County and the American taxpayers.Vaya con Dios mis amigos.

It's Thursday,surely someone in Albuquerque or Santa Fe has read the "Wolf Conservation Assessment"website.I wish to hear your educated opinions.I starve for intelligent enlightenment on this experimental,nonessential program which faces failure due to a combination of inadequacies of this program.It also states that an environmental catastrophe,such as the Wallow Fire ,could cause failure to the program.Especially when combined with the inherent weaknesses of the program itself.Com mon sense says abandon the Blue Range Recovery Program and relocate to Big Bend National Park and Old Mexico.The environment and circumstances there are more conducive to success for this ill conceived and initiated program.There's no success like failure and failure's no success at all.

Just what I was asking for,a brilliant ray of intelligent enlightenment.Now,if I were Sigmund Freud, I could explore the deep ,dark chasm that is Mr. Pogo's mind.That sounds like a line from the comic strip.A bit of humor to season this blog.
