    No matter how you feel about these guys we better get use to them. Even if they establish a manageable population CA will never let us hunt them.

    I honestly think they are cool critters and it is neat to have them returning to their home ranges. With that said once established they should be managed like any other game animal.

    They were reintroduced into the Gila NF where I turkey hunt.....1st off, they're not your smaller Mexican grey wolves (even tho they say they are)....They have wiped out the deer herds and are now working on the elk....Oh, and you can't touch them.

    Here's the trade off.....You want apex predators (grizzlies & wolves) or do we want big game animals....There's a reason our forefathers eliminated them here.

    They would, but they'd first prefer to eat the deer, elk, pigs, turkeys, cattle...

    California will protect them as they do the mountain lions. This is why the deer population is severely being decimated.

    And I am convinced from the timing of the first pictures of the pups that DFW totally planted them in CA.

    Wow what terrible news. I have heard they were in Northern CA. I couple of friends who are houndsmen up there sent a bad pic of a hound that was killed by a couple of these wolves not too long ago.

    This is a bad deal.

    If the wolves would just eat the Feral horses in Nor-Cal...I would say "bring more!" LOL!
