"[T]hese predators pose serious threats to wildlife management and their listing has damaging impacts to local communities," said a spokesperson for Rep. Don Young of Alaska.
I can't but agree. Humans have done nothing but continue to destroy the balance of innocent animals and plants who only want to continue through the circle of life in peace. Nonetheless, I don't think that homo sapiens was the intended "threat" he spoke of.
This statement follows a comment made by Mr Young in regards to siccing wolves on homeless humans to "deal" with the "problem."
While wolves are certainly predators, like coyotes and sharks, they suffer more through the proliferation of rare instances, bad publicity, and common misconceptions than humankind does from our interference in their lives.
