Hunters kill the prime animals


It has now been established in print and on legal record that wolves do not kill trophy bucks. That argument is now no longer valid for the wolf haters to use in their endless battle to exterminate all wolves with untrue facts.

The beautiful bull elk that was slaughtered illegally in Bellevue and left to die was by a human, not a wolf. It was left to die for sport, not food (gratefully, the hungry people of the valley will be eating elk) and slaughtered on private property. I truly hope the same karma will come to the human who killed him—justice would then be served.

I passed yet another truck coming out of the mountains this week with a rack of a buck in the bed—not a sick, young, weak animal—a healthy buck in his prime.

To the wolf haters—you have lost your ability to argue the above fact. I guess you will have to hunt for another.
