The grey wolf was never in the Rockies, and Oregon, Washington. We had the timber wolf, which is less than 2/3 the size of a grey wolf. There numbers are up, and I would love to have a wolf tag.

These wolves were planted and are a invasive species, they are not "native" to this area. there is no control measures for them except to run out of food.

This is the 1 time that only govt dept of fish and wildlife should do the "hunting" or relocation. These wolves are so necessary for eco-system but if problem for ranchers, let fish & wildlife manage.

Wolves are an essential species that we are treading in their territory. It is time we learned to live with wolves, not the other way around.

No not right now because it will give ranchers an excuse to start killing them and then we will have to put them back on the list.

Wolves contribute to our ecosystem in valuable ways.

Once the protections go away, the ranchers and hunters usually lobby the state for seasons and start killing off the wolves in huge numbers. Already happening in Mt and quietly in Wy.

Mankind tends to think they own all. They invade the homes of wildlife and build there. If we are to be the care takers of the world then we must protect all not just our interest.

It’s not that it’s “too dangerous”. It’s that wolves are critical to a healthy ecosystem and they provide many free services to humans, saving us from sickness, injury, and economic loss.

If you don't want them as room mates, don't move in to their home.

They are a part of the natural way of wild life. We should let them be and enjoy them in the wild.

Wolves serve a purpose in our ecosystem. Why would we let people just go out and kill them after we have worked so hard to reintroduce them?

There are too many fools out there that are just waiting to kill a wolf. Releasing them from the protection they now have would be to declare an open season on them.

These wolves have every right to life like any other living thing. Are we going to kill owls because they eat to many rodents? Killing when after livestock I can see but not outright killing them.

Beginning to look like the city wants to be a mini Portland. Not what Central Oregon is all about.
