Reintroducing large predators into ecosystem is very impressive. I spent time at the Lynx introduction program in Germany last year but why bother in places when the following is going to happen.

------------------------------------------------------
Idaho’s governor, C.L. “Butch” Otter told the A.P. that he wants hunters to kill 550 gray wolves. Allegedly 100 gray wolves would then be left to sustain the wolf population. Otter’s reasoning behind this move? Well, other than impressing about 300 hunters who were gathered for the speech, Otter also sited failing elk populations as the main reason behind his wolf vendetta. According to the governor, wolf populations are interfering with elk hunting season. Of course, the facts tell another story. Data collected from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game presents a varying picture. As wolf populations increase, so do the number of elk hunter’s take in each year. In 2005, hunters took more elk than they did in 1993, two years before wolves began to be reintroduced to the area. Like any primary natural predator, wolves ensure the health and balance of populations such as elk and deer. They take the weak and the old from the herds, and this limits overgrazing and allows healthy populations to thrive. When wolves are erased from an area, lesser predators such as coyotes and foxes move in to fill the niche. So why is the governor calling for the extermination of local wolf populations? It looks like a clear cut case of prejudice on behalf of the governor. His thoughts? “I’m prepared to bid for that first ticket to shoot a wolf myself,” he said to the raucously applauding hunters at the assembly.

1: I love wolves and I envy this man.
2: Does anyone remember the release of the cartoon "Bambi"?
In Maine, back then, they went out and hunted wolves with rigour.
The deers rebounded and destroyed crops bigtime.
There has to be a balance.
If the deer populace drops, the wolf populace drops and vice versa. It is a natural balance.
Let us try to keep this balance.
