Send the wolves to New York

Last week I read an editorial in our weekly newspaper that stated that the "Friends of Animals" held a protest rally in New York's Central Park against the "state-sponsored slaughter of wolves" in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. If these so-called "Friends of Animals" are so passionate about saving these genteel creatures from the slaughter, then we have a great idea. The "Friends of Animals" can rescue the wolves and take them home.

We would be more than happy to help in the Great Wolf Rescue. You tell us how many you want in Central Park and we will gladly deliver them for you. I believe as few as 25 or 30 of these wolves in the park would surely solve your homeless campout problem, probably your mugger problems, too! Your stray dog and cat problems would disappear and if you placed a few hundred more around in your other city parks we would all live happily ever after. You would solve our problem and you would have saved the wolves. Hurray!

Should any New Yorkers question their safety around wolves, just tell them what the Fish & Wildlife Service wolf experts told us: "Wolves don't kill people."

I await your call.
