It’s their country too, or not too?

Two kids in Catron County New Mexico were followed home from their bus stop by a wolf.  Two sets of wolf tracks were found in the area when adults investigated later.  A 14 year old was on a family hunting trip in the same county and was surrounded by 3 wolves.  The incident ended with them walking off.  A wolf was seen checking out the Glenwood elementary school playground, in Glenwood, New Mexico.  A deputy is now stationed there during recess.  In Dark Canyon, New Mexico a wolf pack killed an elk between two houses 1500 feet apart.  The small children who live at those houses formerly played outside.  Some of the communities are erecting wolf proof shelters for children to wait for the bus.  Other families are coping by driving their kids to the bus stop and waiting there with them in the car. 

The US Fish and Wildlife Service has been quite successful with their reintroduction of canine predators into the wild.  And into rural communities as well.  They are not making any effort to remove or relocate these wolves from the areas where people are living.   Children will just have to get used to the idea of not being able to play freely outside.  Coming soon to a forested area near you.

Our tax dollars are spent to reintroduce predators into our midst and then again to protect us from those same predators.  Too bad we can’t get some protection from the wolves in DC.
