The Arizona House of Representatives has approved a Senate bill allowing ranchers to kill endangered wolves in self-defense.
Senate Bill 1211 would allow livestock owners to kill a Mexican gray wolf if one was caught attacking livestock or a person.
Wildlife activists say the bill violates the federal Endangered Species Act. But a staff attorney says the bill has been watered down and now meets constitutional requirements.

This was a question? Ya gotta be kiddin.
When is open season on wolf advocates?
Simple common sense. Which means every leftie in the country will object to it.
Jeez, now I don’t want those wolves to die out but it’s absurd you need to pass a law to able to defend yourself or your property from a wild animal, WTF.
What does PETA think people should do, pet the wolf? Buy it some snausages in the hopes they prefer them and leave the cattle alone?
They been whackin them since they re introduced them in the 90s.
Mess with my family, mess with my livestock.
Too bad the overflow of wolves off of gov’t property can’t be sent directly to the State Capitols and to Capitol Hill.
That would be a fair exchange.
i’d say every wolf that attackslivestock or people, tranq it and force an econut to keep it in his house.
i don’t mind if the wolves munch on some peta-pockets.
PETA would rather have you executed than impact an animal’s life in any manner. They are a truly evil group.
I loved the South Park episode about PETA coming to the school and forcing them to change their Cow mascot.
Too bad the overflow of wolves off of govt property cant be sent directly to the State Capitols and to Capitol Hill.
UPS to Harry Reid:
Some items for you senator, just sign here.
Wait, I didn’t order any tortises and certainly
not a THOUSAND of them!!!
Just sign the receipt Senator...
Wildlife activists say the bill violates the federal Endangered Species Act.
ya can't make this stuff up !
the Feds introduced wolves into Wisconsin not too many years ago. Those same wolves have multiplied to the extent they have become a real problem on deer and cattle herds in this area. Hence, EVERY wolf around these parts is indeed an “endangered species” and although still protected by law, WILL meet their demise, upon sight. Some wolves have already reached that milestone I am told.
It’s inanity on a mass-scale.
Before this, if attacked by a wolf you were supposed to just let it eat?
Nice to see Arizona leadership recognize common sense, but it's a statement on the pathetic state of our nation that it has to be spelled out in law.
Yet it escapes me how some folks can be so ignorant about what people can face in the wilderness. Of course you carry, of course you prepare to draw, and you pray to God that the sound behind you in the desert brush is Bambi looking for his mother and not a hungry bear or a mountain lion.
I’m trying to find the part in the Constitution that pertains to wolves. :-)
