Siskiyou County orders study of wolves

The Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors ordered staff Tuesday to do more research into a proposed law that would ban wolves and allow ranchers to kill the ones that do show up. The ordinance, written by Leo Bergeron, a rancher and president of the Siskiyou County Water Users Association, would declare wolves to be "injurious, detrimental" and an "imminent danger to individuals, families and the lives of others." It would also presumably allow the shooting of California's only wolf, the first of his species in the state in almost 90 years. The supervisors asked the county's natural resources policy adviser to put together a study committee on wolf kills and report back to the board later with various options. Link

The study will find that wolves are opportunistic killers of any warm blooded species....and that includes homo sapiens for you mud dobbers and tree huggers.
