I presume you're speaking about weeds literally (not metaphorically), and I would generally agree. Where the F&WS went wrong, in my opinion, was forcing the wolf introduction on Forest Service lands in Arizona leased to ranchers for grazing. It would have been better to release them in the Gila Wilderness area in NM where they would have much less of a chance to come in contact with humans and their livestock (I know -- grazing is allowed in wilderness areas too.) But putting an endangered species in direct conflict with people just trying to make a living is utterly stupid.

I hope it was just stupid and not something more sinister. Trouble is, knowing when it happened (mid-90s) means it was probably done with malice aforethought.

I was. Weeds are a serious environmental problem that requires careful, detailed work by highly trained people, often under difficult physical circumstances.
Who is going to do that kind of work in an environment that endangers life and limb?
