It’s been a while since we posted on this page. We’ve kept most of our updates to our Anti-Hunting news page. One issue that we’d like to discuss is the Canadian Gray Wolf. Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ve heard about the wolf problem the Rocky Mountains are having. Not only in the West but out East as well. There are many different arguments out there. Unfortunately even some hunters are saying that wolves aren’t an issue. If wolves are left unchecked and allowed to spread then I think that we can all agree of the severe consequences that will have on our big game herds.
1. There are around 1,691 wolves in the Rocky Mountains.
2. One wolf can kill up to 35 elk a year. That’s 59,185 elk that can potentially be killed every year by wolves. Utah’s elk population is around 69,000.
Still don’t think we have a wolf problem?
We urge everyone to read this article on Petersen’s Hunting.com and decide for yourself: http://www.petersenshunting.com/2014/02/21/anti-hunters-dead-wrong-about-wolves/
