    Default Objections to Wolf Hunt in Michigan?

    https://www.michfb.com/MI/Farm_News/...hidden_agenda/

    Our friends are at work again, opposing limited hunt on wolves.

    I'm vehemently opposed to hunting for fun- hunting for food, fine. But no one is going to eat their wolf, so they are just killing them for fun. If they must control the population, surely they can find some other way to do it.

    First, don't call me "Shirley."

    Second, why is this not a legitimate method?

    I agree there are probably other methods that should be used in conjunction to control them, but what will will work as effectively as hunting? I wouldn't say it was just for fun though either, it's to keep them from killing livestock, I'm sure some farmers aren't going to consider it fun but necessity. If they were attacking my fenced animals, I'd want them gone too. I wouldn't want to wait 10 years for some gentler way to get rid of them.......

    considering that domestic lifestock does not respond to cyclic events like natural food sources, like deer for example, I don't think there is a 'kinder' way by hoping that the numbers regulate themselves with a constantly set table.

    Hunting is a good way to not only control the population but to also teach the survivors to be respectful and afraid of people, and dogs. Serves a purpose. It protects the wolves that aren't killed by hunting by making them easier to live with for the people in the area. Where I live you can barely take your dog for a hike without risking having it killed by a pack of wolves.
