Re: “Gray wolf ballot measure submitted

For sure, I would love to pay for that- I am sure you would as well. I am assuming you are a contributing member?

Lots of problems with this initiative- first and foremost it is proposed by parties that have a history of mis-information and public deceit- Talk with Idaho and Montana. Secondly, Colorado Parks and Wildlife has already gone on record against this measure- Wolves are already here, they have a plan in place in order to manage continued migration of packs from Wyoming- forcing them to manage and budget this new plan only takes away from already scarce resources. They have lots of smart biologists working for them- how about we listen to the science and stay away from emotion based decision making.

The subspecies of gray wolf that once inhabited Colorado is unfortunately extinct, so instead of calling this a re-introduction- call it what it really is- an INTRODUCTION of an non-native subspecies that never was here (Canadian Grays- as proposed) . That simple fact would probably change a lot of public sentiment who value "restoration of the natural world". I have not seen a lot of support to bolster populations of quagga mussels, or bark beetles- maybe because they don't invoke the "spiritual closeness" to the natural world- as proposed above.

I have no real dog in this fight (other than not really enjoying my hard earned dollars wasted)- as a taxpayer, I sure see this as a waste of management dollars for a proposed solution to a non-existent problem- they will be here regardless. I Guarantee this will be only another example of humans trying to "fix" a human caused issue, and only further compounding it- mixing raw emotion and simple economics is never a good idea.
