[DELETE] Yep. Sounds like we should focus more on excessive logging and less on wolves. <NT> SirFlipsALot New
If there are only 4 of them (the caribou, that is) they're not likely to be the primary basis of anything's diet for very long, are they?
I did read the links and I saw a lot more about habitat loss than predation as a cause for the caribou's decline. Historically, wouldn't wolves and caribou have shared this area? Why wouldn't success for wolves be regarded as a success and failure for caribou be regarded as a loss? Why transform the wolf reintroduction success into another loss by deliberately killing them off?
I can buy that there is an argument that we shouldn't try to "fix" stuff because we don't have any control over unintended consequences.
I can also buy that there is a role for "restoration" efforts, potentially.
I'm confused that you seem to favor one approach for the caribou and the inverse and opposite approach to wolves.
Wassup with that?
My only point is that human beings are responsible for caribou decline, not wolves. <NT> SirFlipsALot New
The aboriginal subspecies is getting rare to see, but has been sighted as recently as last winter south of here. Gordo New
