Wolves are not like hunters at all. They are present 24/7/365. They alter moose behavior in very different ways than humans, and that has impacts that we are only beginning to understand.
It's not about how many moose get killed, it's how they die. Control is not simply mortality. And moose are not moo$e. The DNR and feds are not supposed to be profiting from wildlife. That's not their mandate or mission. I don't understand why hunters have such a hard time understanding this.
I thought the problem was herd control? How are wolves a better choice than hunters? How do you control wolves? You do know that wolves don't always eat what they kill. They just enjoy killing. They also go after the young. What happens when the herd is where they want it. How do you stop the wolves from killing too many?
Hunters are a better choice when everything is considered. Why is that hard for you to understand?
I understand they want to add wolves to the wolf pack. I ask why? We have no wolves in Colorado and we're doing fine. It's much easier to control elk and moose than wolves, coyotes, and bears.
