Lobo watch

The LOBO WATCH column at takes a lengthy look at an ever growing wolf problem
in the U.S.

Our Department of the Interior has already wasted millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars to unleash a devastating
ecological disaster on some of the wildlife richest areas of this country. And wildlife populations are
now in serious decline, due to wolf depredation and the never ending stress that wolves put on big game
populations. Still, an out of control U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service continues to defend the "bad science"
that has destroyed elk herds in some areas by 75 to 80 percent - and continues to pull down other big game
populations as well.

Did you know that wolves have taken Yellowstone's moose population from 1,200 (in 1995) to ONLY 117 animals
now? And the once great Northern Yellowstone elk herd has crashed from around 19,000 to ONLY around 5,000 today.

Wolves continue to destroy the past hundred years of conservation work in the Northern Rockies (and the upper
Midwest as well)...and the fools who manage the Wolf Recovery project continue to waste millions of dollar more
every year.

The Two Part column can be found at the following links, which take a look at this disaster...who has been at
fault...those who blew the horn "wolf science" in other parts of the world was foolishly ignored...
the damage that has already been done...what it will take to reverse big game losses...and the decades it will
take to rebuild those wildlife a hint at what it will cost.

Part 1 -

Part 2 -

Unless our Shooting & Hunting Industry gets fully invlolved and finances the court battles it will take to attack
the idiocy of the USFWS Wolf Recovery Project, and the environmental groups which have forced this project, hunting
will quickly become a thing of the past - and so will the wildlife watching that so many non-hunting Americans
also enjoy.
