In county commissioner Steve Parker’s letter to the Statesman-Examiner in the April 3 edition, Parker said, “We have had enough but the Washington Dept. of Fish and Wildlife hasn’t given enough. I guess this proves that it really is better to give than to receive.” I agree with this statement. The department operates very slowly-if they operate at all. What is the truth? In the Holy Bible we read about the truth when it says, “Demetrius hath good report of all men, and of the truth itself: yea, and we also bear record; and ye know that our record is true (III John 12).” The truth is that wolves kill and hurt the farmer’s livestock. Like the verse says, this is the true record when it comes to wolves.
I have a solution to the wolf problem! Do not kill all the wolves, no, no, no! Save some for the zoos. Since we don’t want them to go extinct, of course. Just quickly kill all the rest. Wouldn’t it be nice if Fish and Wildlife would listen to the public and act quickly to protect our private property and livelihood? In the recent meetings between the department and landowners, Fish and Wildlife representatives acted like an unresponsive brick wall.
