Shoot a wolf, save a job


Instead of persecuting Tom White for shooting wolves, the Department of Fish and Wildlife should be on their knees thanking him for trying to save their jobs (“Three indicted on charges in endangered wolf deaths,” June 9). Fifteen packs of wolves, unbelievable!

Remember, wolves don’t comply with hunting seasons. It’s breakfast, lunch and dinner 365 days a year and a fawn deer or elk calf doesn’t last long, so pretty quick no game for the sportsman, so no need to buy a license or game tag. Result, no money to operate the department, so then pink slips.

I just spent four years hunting in Germany and Austria and I learned very fast that you better not be a four-legged, fur-covered varmint in the woods over there. I was a hunting instructor for U.S. Forces Europe.
