Plan to end protections for wolves makes sense

May 1, 2013

Southern Minnesota and northern Iowa are not directly concerned about the predations of gray wolves. But there are other trouble-makers that residents watch out fo....

Fred IS smart. I am from Fairmont, and I am proud of that. I visit my family and friends often, and promise you I will never misspell it. I will say that Gary Anderson publishes opinions and tows lines of interests in molding his newspaper. $$$ Wikipedia it. It's the #1 in one department.

No1 here has any affiliation with PETA. Is that really all you have? That and "go home"? I'd be fine with that UpNorth. We need to learn how to coexist. Being too quick to release energy in the form of dislike of an organism is weaksauce. Soft. It takes more courage and power to understand and resist said urges...

A person can really tell where those peta yahoo's live. How about this. Stop hunting & live trap 500+ & put them in metro-area parks?? Then we can see how fast the joggers really are!!

Remember when George Bush caused the extinction of the t-rex?

I saw those wolf shirts too. Very sweet, and if you can't pull the ladies while wearing one of those, there is seriously something wrong with you.

...might make this fine publication almost as popular as FOX news, although I highly doubt it. If so, you know who to thank though. Controversy is popular...so is Jersey Shore!

StumpJumper comes through with another insightful comment and wildthing wants people to go home, as usual, when he has no meaningful response to others' sentiments. It is very dangerous for man to believe he is so intelligent he can balance all the intricacies within nature which have taken many thousands of years to achieve. We have, never the less, attempted to do so and are paying the consequences. Future actions must be weighed carefully. Once change is introduced going back to the original position is neigh on impossible. I fear the long term effects of such changes being introduced are slowly leading us to our own Armageddon. Annihilation should never be considered a solution. The ideal is a symbiotic relationship. May we be wise enough to find a happy medium.

Oh, I get it. The Sentinel must be Fairmont’s version of The Onion because certainly no responsible, respectable writer, publisher or editor would present such misinformation and expect to be taken seriously. Did you, like, just watch the excellent documentary Lords of Nature and thought it’d be funny to test publishing a totally trash, really dumb article in which you refute every scientific fact you might have learned in such an intelligent, thought-provoking film about the vital role that wolves actually play in maintaining the balance and health of the ecosystems in which they live, the devastation that actually results to the environment when wolves are removed, and that hunters can't control prey populations as predators like wolves do naturally? Maybe you weren’t trying to be funny, and instead it’s “Opposite Day” in Fairmont where truth is the opposite of what you write. In either case, I do hope the good folks of Fairmount can truly appreciate you two for the jokers you are.

To the uneducated person who wrote this article, Please write another article after you have educated yourself on the topic. Good grief I would expect this out of an uneducated child but not a professional writer. Your so dead wrong you embarrass yourself and make the people who are educated in the science and history of the wolves cringe. Will you feel anything when the last elephant falls in Africa too?

This is the most asinine, uninformed opinion I've probably have Ever read regarding the de-listing of the grey wolf. Seriously this is the best you could come up with? You could've at least thrown in the age old we need to eliminate them or they will gobble up our children & grandchildren while they wait for the bus as justification for your hate towards the wolf. To say they do not have a place within our eco-system is beyond asinine ignorance. God created the wolf & other predators for a reason,to keep the sick & the aged deer animal populations in check. Obviously Mr. Anderson & Mr. Smith have zero idea what they are talking about,most likely old farmers who want to return to the 'Good Ole Days" back in the early part of the 2oth century when all the Natural predators were eradicated for fun. Fortunately there are Many of us who do Not & Will fight to protect the wolf from ignorant fools such as these.

Once I saw a tee shirt that had 3 wolves on it. It was pretty cool.

No it doesn't...it makes DOLLARS!

We are one just one sliver in the vastness of the geologic time-scale of development. Let's not un-thread eons of a the beautiful process of creation/evolution (call it what you want, it's one in the same) with selfish behavior. The Universe (we) is one large "organism" of organisms, just like bacteria in your gut...
