Idaho governor offers to 'replace' Oregon wolf with 150 more
The Outdoor Pressroom ^ | 2/14/12 | Valerie Richardson

Posted on 02/15/2012 7:58:27 PM PST by girlangler

In an obvious tongue-in-cheek propostion, Idaho Governor C.L. "Butch" Otter has sent Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber an offer to "replace" the collared wolf from Oregon that was shot by a hunter in Idaho.

"I am offering to send you 150 wolves from Idaho," Otter wrote. "Idaho has more than a sufficient number, in fact many more than the federal government originally required we have, and can spare a few." Washington Times.

Check that collar carefully, might not be a wolf, just a lawyer from Eric the Bigot’s office.

A Hunter in our Deer Camp last November LEGALLY shot a huge wolf. These Federal wolves have killed off the deer herd and other species in the area where I hunt. I can find no justification to pay BIG BUCKS to the State of Idaho to hunt deer that are not there do to Federal Wolves.

That’s the point Gov. Otter was trying to make.

LOL! Gov. Otter probably ticked off Kitzhaber with that bit of humor but I’d bet Otter was serious, in a way.

OR and WA are starting to feel the effects of the wolf problem and libs Kitzhaber (OR) and Gregoire (WA) are probably on the side of the enviro-nazis.

I was elk hunting in North Idaho last fall and was following a set of tracks down a muddy road. All of the sudden, a set of wolf tracks appeared on the same road. I followed the tracks back towards our camp and when I got there I ran into a guy that just saw a wolf take down a calf elk 200 yards away from the camp.

Kill a wolf... save a hundred elk.

Wolf season is closing here only 163 of the 220 quota killed. So we could spare at least 57 more...

I have good friends who live in a (very) small town along the St. Joe river south of St. Marie’s, ID. Their area is overrun with wolves.

Last weekend they sent a photo of an elk fetus that had been ripped from its mother’s womb by a pack of those bastards. They took about a 12” square of meat from the cow’s hind quarter and left the rest.

Don’t tell me that wolves only kill for food! There is too much of this thrill killing going on in Idaho and Montana to be a fluke.

The species of wolves that was introduced here is NOT native to the area. There is a reason that wolves were wiped out of inhabited areas many years ago. Now we are once again seeing why that happened. They are the jihadis of the natural world.

The next wolf lover who tries to prosletyze me is in for some trouble.

Wolf season is open in Idaho until the end of June so I’d like to invite EVERYBODY to come and kill a wolf.

If only they could be trained to hunt and eat liberals...

I can’t account for the slowness of FR’s servers to respond to my post. My message needs repeating for the citizens and businesses in Idaho that depend on hunters for a large portion of their livelihood.

Do you have a posting police badge number? :>)

I’ve been doing the same thing. It takes forever for me to load FR, then when I try to post it is so slow and I post two times the same message. I’ve also read where other freepers are having the same problem.

Oregon has its own problems with wolves....see the legislation currently under consideration allowing for their killing if they are predators of livestock...

This pic was just sent to me by a close friend who lives in Eastern, OR. He and some fellow ranchers and hunters have come up with a wolf management plan, this is the driver side door of his pickup and looks great to me. :-).

OR Wolf Plan

LOL. The folks near here (in the Gila NF) are not happy about the Mexican Gray wolves released here.
