Do we have 300, 400, 500 or 600 in the U.P.? It makes no difference of how many we have.
It does make a difference of how many we have in an area. I suggest we do control by counties and let the people in each county vote if they want to reduce the wolf population. If the vote is yes then the DNR steps in with a program.
That way the people that are affected and the experts can work out a realistic program.
When you see wolves trotting along lakes edge in a residential area I vote you have too many in that area.
When you see a wolf looking at you through your kitchen window I vote you have too many in that area. When you see a wolf trotting up your driveway, I vote you have too many in that area.
When you have dogs and catch a wolf on a camera 150 feet away from your house you have too many.
Let's let the people with excess wolves too near them, and the DNR take care of them. Not people who love to see them trotting down the roads.
