We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
As Moose populations gradually rebound in New England, and as White-Tailed Deer become pests in some areas because of lack of hunters and of predators, I am all in favor of bringing Wolves back to our neighborhood. Wolves kill coyotes, so there's that benefit too.
The article brought out some of the good results of the wolves (or at least what the author theought were good results). There is a large number of negative results from the wolves too. I predict this will backfire and we will spend good money to reverse or control this.
There is a solution for too many deer: longer hunting seasons and more tags. DUH.
Trust me, you don't want to reintroduce wolves. I live in a state where the elk population has been decimated by the reintroduction of wolves. I have seen elk near my house (suburbia, more or less), which is completely abnormal for elk in our area.
The cattle ranchers are also dealing with wolf problems right and left...I couldn't even imagine what would happen if you reintroduced wolves into a more populated eastern state. Are you also considered reintroducing grizzly bears?
Modern wildlife management should be more responsible than introducing a dangerous predator into an area full of human beings! You are just asking for trouble....
