Petition seeks wolf reintroduction across country
ap ^ | July 20, 2010 | MATTHEW BROWN

Posted on 07/20/2010 1:53:52 PM PDT by george76

Bad idea if there are feral dogs in the area and there almost always is.

There was talk about re-introducing Grizzly Bears into Washington State and I remember one advocate said essentially that humans have killed far more Grizzly Bears than bears have killed humans. So, this is pay pack time. It is only fair.

Your basic Obama supporter.

Bar Harbor would be a great place to release some wolves.

This could be a good thing. Wolf packs chasing down and eating tree-huggers and other enviro-wackos; just like the grizzly-hugger and his idiot girlfriend. Think of it as culling the herd.

GREAT! So now we’ll have people’s dogs, cats AND CHILDREN killed by the damned things. Of course if YOU should shoot one, you’ll face an incredible fine or perhaps some jail time!! But an least the leftist, animal “loving” whacko’s will be happy

Start by reintroducing them to Washington D.C. and this is a program I could get behind.

Why stop there? How about reintroducing mountain lions back all over their historical range?

While we're at it, let's also clone and reintroduce smilodon fatalis. It too once roamed North America.

This is the link to a seriously disturbing website that opened my eyes to the dangers of re-introducing wolves into clean areas. There’s a reason the wolf is the Big Bad in so many fairy tales.

Extremely graphic photos of dead/partially eaten critters, so don’t look if you can’t handle it.

I imagine the US/Mexico border could also use a few roaming packs of wolves.

Y’know, if a guy had some tranquilizer darts and a box truck...he could drop off a couple of grizzlies at Waterfront Park...I’m just sayin’...

I mean, who’s to say they weren’t trying to get there anyhow?

First place should be Central Park in NYC. Use them for a trial run.

I know of a guy that had to give up use of half of his land because wolves killed his stock. Tens of thousands of wolves released means hundreds of thousands of dead sheep and cows and many people.

Mountain lions are already plentiful in many states.

You know, I read in the USA Today about 3 years ago (I never read that rag anymore) that some environmentalists want to “reintroduce” tigers, lions and elephants to North America. They say we used to have them about 10,000 years ago or something. Yeah, talk about insanity. They accuse conservatives of being ridicules for wanting to go back to Reagan, but they want to take us back to the stone age.

They aren’t on the east coast, or at least here in North Carolina.

You hear reports of sightings, but I have yet to see any proof. Of course, some people SWEAR they’ve seen them up in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Maybe they will cut down the coyote population before sensible people cut them down.

No, that wouldn't be an Obama supporter if he was referring to reintroducing Grizzlies into the urban zone from Seattle to Tacoma.

You'd have what's known as the vanishing species of Americanus Conservativus for that particular ecological zone.

What I wonder is how many Democrats could a well motivated bear kill and eat in a day? 10, 20 perhaps? Maybe more?

Anyone have an idea on this.

They go nuts when a coyote snatches somebody's shitzu.

Imagine how nuts they'll go when a timber wolf snatches somebody's 8-year old.
