There is a nine line proposed law in Pierre, SB 205, which, if approved, will allow for the slaughter of any wolf seen anywhere, doing anything, or nothing. Allowing the wholesale slaughter of the wolf, makes us the same as what we accuse them to be, "predators and varmints."
Rather than pushing the excess elk problem to somebody else here is an idea: bring back the wolf. Wolves like elk meat. They are good at culling herds. Wolves take out the weak, old, and slow. Strong elk survive.
