Rescind consent to kill wolves

In response to John Peavey's "Rumors about wolves need correcting," I would commend him for an important first step. The next important step, and one that might help in dispelling the rumors he refers to, would be for him to rescind the ongoing permission he gave Wildlife Services to be able to shoot wolves on his property. Since permission was already in place, no further calls were needed after his neighbor requested action from Wildlife Services. Rescinding ongoing permission would lead to more control by John over Wildlife Services' activities on his property.

His plan to move forward with more non-lethal methods is most commendable, and we applaud him and his family for this important direction. We hope other ranchers would follow the lead of John Peavey and his fellow rancher at Lava Lake Land and Livestock who only use non-lethal means.
