HBO — to One Lucky Girl re. Wolves

One Lucky Girl: "OK, you guys obviously don't know the whole wolf situation. They were reintroduced into a part of idaho they were never native to in the first place. And they aren't just taking some elk (which my the way is not pluralized by an "s") and some cattle. They are taking half of people's herds, and their pets, and attacking their kids. Trust me, I lived where they are. You aren't affected by the wolves one way or another, and these people's livelihoods are at stake. So, let fish and game do what is best, and until they prove they can part the seas, i don't see them as trying to play God."

DFO: I see you have your father's fire in your belly, One Lucky Girl. I'm not going to tell you HBOers who OLG is, of course, but I will say that she lived in the Bovill, Idaho, area for some time with an Idaho original for a father who's woodsman. In other words, she knows whereof she speaks. And she brings up some good points here. BTW, I also agree with her. The wolf reintroduction idea has got to be one of the dumbest ones that the feds have come up with.
