Let the agents manage wolves

John Gaither's letter (Jan. 18) was quite informative about wolves; they do kill people.

Since this wolf predator from Canada was transported to and released in the United States, they have been causing domestic violence.

This violence has been very rapidly increasing across the state of Idaho, along with other states. Sheep and cattle were killed here in Blaine County just last summer, some even here in the Wood River Valley. I'm glad it wasn't a tourist camping or hiking, or a child from our community.

It's very good to see they have finally put these predators in the hands of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. This organization has the knowledge to properly protect, manage and help control this predator, as it has done with other animals, fish and birds.

With their controlled fishing, hunting and trapping, this helps keep down the population to prevent disease and help with the domestic violence problems.

With this predator, you can plainly see the endangered species programs have not been working at all. So, work with the Department of Fish and Game, not against them.

Some people should calm down and relax. Put away your whistles and quit blowing your loud horns. Just let Fish and Game and the government agents do their jobs,
