One questions and I mean this seriously. Exactly what prey base other than livestock in CA can seriously sustain any real population of wolves. Maybe coyotes and ML's, but certainly not deer and damn sure not elk. A pack of wolves eat a lot of protein.
I love best how the Cattleman Assoc rep tiptoes politically to say how they "DON'T WANT TO SHOOT THEM"! I call BS on that. What rancher doesn't wan't the right to shoot a predator eating his profit's. Funny how afraid everyone in Cali is of the enviro's.
I'm glad I moved Kali 11 years ago. I love that state, but the direction it's headed is left of wacko unfortunately.
Now if I was a wolf I might head to the coast for good weather and plenty of wild hog's for prey.
