Thrown to the Wolves - Wolves are being reintroduced to wildlands to drive people out
The New American ^ | January 27, 2003 | William Norman Grigg

Posted on 08/06/2003 3:48:20 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe

Wolves are being reintroduced to wildlands to drive people out, intentionally putting human life at risk for the sake of creating a UN biodiversity preserve.

Across the nation, particularly in western states, ranchers are feeling the bite of the so-called "wolf recovery" program, which began with reintroducing wolves to Yellowstone National Park in 1995. Stemming from the Endangered Species Act (ESA), this program was followed three years later with the return of Mexican gray wolves in the Southwest, and similar initiatives are underway in the Midwest and Northeast.

As the resurgent wolf packs thrive, they are inflicting serious economic damage on dairy and beef ranchers. Notes the November 9th Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel: "[B]eef cattle ranchers in northwestern Wisconsin say nighttime wolf raids cost them 92 calves [in 2001] alone.... They’ve found calves with their hindquarters shredded, still alive and trying to suckle. They have stumbled upon a pregnant cow ripped open and her fetus torn out. They have seen calves with crushed throats — dead without losing a drop of blood. Killed, they believe, simply for the thrill." "There is a reason the farmers made [wolves] extinct before, and this is probably the reason," comments Cortney Fornengo, whose family runs a beef cattle ranch in Wisconsin.

According to the December 30th Salt Lake Tribune, the impact of wolf recovery on the ranching industry in Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming is measured primarily by "an absence of calves coming home after herds graze [in] national forests." The family of Dick and Betty Baker, sixth-generation cattle ranchers in Salmon, Idaho, describe how wolves have literally intruded into their backyard to prey on cattle and sheep. Seeking to contain the predators, federal wildlife officials "got after them with rubber bullets and helicopters and spent a lot of money," Dick Baker recalled. Despite such cost-intensive efforts, "we [still] see wolves lay right up there on the bench watching the cattle and waiting for dark."

Jay Wiley owns a ranch located along Idaho’s Salmon River. He points out that since 1995, "The [wolf] population just exploded, and [federal wildlife officials] have lost control." Wiley also points out that the owner of a neighboring ranch lost $12,000 worth of calves in wolf attacks during 2001. And with the feds looking to add local species such as the sage grouse and bull trout to the endangered species list, Wiley and other ranchers may be driven to sell off their land.

Heartbreaking though it is to lose a family ranch, losing a family member is incomparably worse. If not for their dog’s protective instincts, the family of retired postal worker Richard Humphrey may have fallen prey to Mexican wolves during an April 1998 camping trip near Safford, Arizona. The family had set up camp in a well-known tourist location when their dog Buck discovered two Mexican wolves lurking nearby. The wolves backed off, and the family assumed that "the wolves were just passing through."

A little more than an hour later, Helen screamed for Richard to grab his rifle. A short distance from the camp Buck had become entangled in a life-and-death fight with several wolves. Armed with his rifle, Richard tried to chase the wolves away. One of them suddenly charged at the Humphreys, and Richard shot him down less than 50 feet from his family. The family gently gathered their seriously wounded dog and went to find a veterinarian. When they arrived at Safford, Richard — in compliance with federal law — reported the wolf shooting to an agent of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS).

The terrifying wolf attack was just the beginning of the Humphrey family’s problems. Notes Range magazine, "Richard had accidentally become a political pawn and scapegoat." Eco-radical groups in Arizona demanded that the retired postal worker be slapped with a huge fine and sent to prison. After six weeks of relentless and invasive questioning by federal officials, no charges were filed against Humphrey, provoking eco-radical outrage.

"By refusing to prosecute Richard Humphrey … the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service has sent a signal that killing wolves is not a serious crime," complained the Center for Biological Diversity. Bear in mind that the supposed crime committed by Humphrey was to defend himself, his wife, and two young daughters from a potentially lethal attack. It’s also important to recognize that it was the FWS that had created the conditions for this near tragedy. As Range magazine points out, "wolves were being fed road-kill twice per week by [the] FWS" in release pens less than a mile away from the campsite where the attack occurred. "FWS had guaranteed in public meetings that ‘Notice of general wolf locations will be publicized,’" reported the publication. "If they had followed through with their pledges to the public, the Humphreys’ calamitous situation would not have occurred."

But such situations are the predictable — indeed, the intended — result of the federal government’s wolf "re-colonization" effort. Renee Askins of the eco-radical Wolf Recovery Fund has admitted that "wolf recovery is not about wolves. [Instead] it is about control of the west."

Wildlife ecologist Dr. Charles F. Kay summarizes: "Simply put, environmentalists are using wolf recovery and the Endangered Species Act to run ranchers out of the country and to thwart multiple use of public lands.... Is this what Congress had in mind when it passed the Endangered Species Act?"

While Congress probably didn’t intend for the Endangered Species Act to drive humans off their land, that is the act’s inevitable effect. And this is entirely understandable considering that act’s pedigree. Dr. Michael S. Coffman, a forest biologist and author of Saviors of the Earth?, points out that the Endangered Species Act is adapted from the UN’s Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species of Flora and Fauna.

The ESA’s decades-long assault on property rights thus has its origins in UN mandates. And the "rural cleansing" campaign is part of an even more grandiose UN program called the "Wildlands Project," under which half of the U.S. land area would be converted into a vast biodiversity preserve. One supporter of re-wilding western lands explained that reintroducing wolves and other large predators was intended to "bring back another element that has been vanishing from the Western back country. That ingredient is fear. Wolves are killers.... People will think twice before traipsing into the back country."

Simply put, the "wolf recovery" program is a form of environmental terrorism. Thus while the U.S. government is working through the UN to fight a war against terrorism abroad, it is collaborating with UN-linked environmental radicals to wage an eco-terrorist campaign against rural property owners here at home.

This will always be a problem in the West as long as the cattle industry are essentially partners with the Bureau of Land Management. The very nature of ranching makes it impossible to keep wild animals separated from cattle herds.

no win situation for the eco-nuts! Self Defense will always triumph in this argument! All one has to do is make sure no one is around who contradicts your story and everything should workout.

That being said if the benevolent(sic) bureaucracy starts harassing folks legally for shooting wolves for the sake of intimidation we all should band together and bring suit against the individual government employees involved!

After all fair is fair!

Well unless the wolves get the assistance of permanently deployed, blue-helmeted UN peacekeepers, the outcome of this confrontation is gonna be pretty predictable. The wolves lost before and they'll likely lose again. Man is the superior predator, it's as simple as that.

As an aside, it may be some interest that a dead young wild wolf was found in East Central Indiana {a few miles from the Ohio state line] in the the last day or so. It's the first known wild wolf in Indiana since 1905. It was tagged and released in northern Wisconsin - an appreciable distance away.

Mexican Gery Wolves have been "reintroduced" in Southern New Mexico range and grazing lands. Strangely enough, most of them have been found shot dead and "nobody knows nothing".

No professional courtesy there whatsoever. The wolf is a very noble beast. Revered by Native Americans for it's strength and hunting ability.

On the other hand they would probably receive a lot of professional courtesy from a polecat, or a rat!

UN biodiversity preserve...

Our government actually agreed when this program was started to let the uN exercise power over our private property ownership rights. Under this uN hegemony, fascistic councils in the state who have a belief in confiscating private property to begin with, usurp your right to "use and dispose" your land freely...using a mechanism of fake bio science as a gun to your head. Its been done already. You still are responsible for maintenance, but some appointed govt power decides and controls the use.

This is fascism, plain and simple. If you own land in these areas check it out.

We aren't going to put up with this. I hunt coyotes in KY at the invitation of farmers and the coyotes are bad enough to require hunting as part of establishing a fear factor in the coyote population.

We are facing the introduction of wolves in western Kentucky and the problem of serious cattle losses will emerge quickly IMO. People will face a threat as described in this story. The facts are wolves will die as "varmit" hunters are invited in to take care of the problem.

The first time a human is seriously injured by a wolf in Kentucky the wolves will be wiped out. Count on it.

I disagree. The Wolf is nothing more than a vicious predator that has no business being reintroduced into civilized society.

I think if the right folks get pinged to this thread that is dealing with this issue daily will agree. These wolves are bad hombre's.

Yeah the eco-nuts reintroduced coyotes in southern Ohio and now packs of them are starting to wander onto farms and rural homes attacking livestock, pets and even small children.

Lots of shooting going on and the federales and statees don't like it none!

NUTS I sez to 'em!

Varmints is Varmints and if they don't want'em shot then don't let;em get near me and especially on my land!

Maybe packs of ravenous wolves should be reintroduced along our southern border, along with plenty of mountain lions, endangered rattlesnakes, and grizzly bears.

I agree on the reintroduction part but they are very beautiful and noble animals! The pack is all to them they cooperate amongst themselves to hunt, they take great care of their young, they mate for life.

That being said if they mistake me for prey well that is their tough luck!

Brilliant! Superb thinking! I wonder how we
can get a movement started to reintroduce these
varmits on the border. Perhaps instead of killing
the wolves, maybe folks should get tranquilizer guns.
When a wolf intrudes on their property, just tranquilize
it and call some group to truck it to the border
for re-release. Same with the snakes, pumas, etc.
I like your idea!
Is there enough water for alligators to live in the
Rio Grande?

Lived in wolf country most of my life..spent a lot of time outdoors working and playing (hunting trapping camping etc)

Ive spent time with lots of old timers some of them the children of settlers...
Wolves were an abomination to the farmers....their livestock and their children....they were as big a threat and enemy as the two legged predators of their day.

They had to be taken down in such numbers that they feared man and his property and stuck to the wilds..surviving on what they could find

Now that man has become so sissified and treats predators with kid gloves they have become emboldened...(as have the two legged predators) they seem to know that they are "protected" and flaunt it

People need to get it through their heads that when they hear a shot in the middle of the night in the direction of their neighbors house to NOT get on the phone to the Sheriff or DNR agent
as your neighbor may very well be looking after his property and yours..

The DNR around here protect coyotes (they come onto porches and take pets) and rattlesnakes (closed down a guys quarry operation because of snake nesting sites)
The DNR is no friend of our citizenry...imo

I have a better idea. Find out where the people live who pushed for or made the screwball decision to release preditors where people live and camp, then go to their house one day when they are gone and "introduce", oh lets say, some scorpions or a sack of really angry black racer snakes to the inside of their house. This is hypothetical, of course.

There is actually an interesting split in the eco-freak camp on this issue. The more Green nuts actually oppose the open borders agenda because they hate to see their pristine southern states begin to fill up with people. The more Red nuts know they are only using environMENTALism as a mask for communism, so they oppose any attempts to control the borders on the grounds that all the fences, roads, trucks and people are destroying the ecosystem near the border.

It may be possible to drive a wedge between them and alienate some of the more ideological greens away from the movement, and maybe even recruit them into the "Wise Use" camp.

They've just misdirected their energies in a futile direction.
It'd be much more beneficial if they worked toward replenishing the populations of game animals: pheasant, quail, elk, antelope, wild turkey, bunny rabbits, walleye, trout, etc, etc.

Then everybody would be happy.

I don't see how the Greens can possibly be happy with the liberals after seeing California --- right now the immigrants might seem ideal because they're willing to pack 3 or 4 families in one home, but there won't be much green places left in California once they start seeing that others live one family per house and decide they want that. A million illegals a year plus countless other numbers of immigrants ---many heading to the SW where the environment really cannot support the huge population centers that are popping up all over ---- something has to give. You won't have gray wolves or much of any kind of wildlife with very large cities and urbanization like you see between Chicago-Detroit-Toledo. The national forests will have to be converted into urban areas quite soon with the rate immigration is going.

No "re-introduction" needed or possible.

200 years ago coyotes weren't found east of Texas. In the last 50 years or so they've spread all the way to Canada and the East Coast all by themselves. They apparently represent little threat to humans, but they are sheer death on pets.

One thing somebody living in these areas might consider:

The next time the wolves kill a calf or a cow, set it out in some open area and sit there 300 yards back with a 300 winmag or something, i.e. far enough away the noise won't spook the wolves, shoot a half dozen or a dozen of them, and leave the carcasses piled up in front of the ecoterrorists offices with some sort of a message letting them know how you really feel.
