Salmon Idaho Derby “Winners” Announced

The photo is one sent by someone that was at the Derby. It is not from the Salmon Recorder-Herald weekly newspaper, which is not on line, and which has ranted against wolves since 1995. A friend summarized what the article said in today’s paper.

  1. Why is it USFWS picks the most hostile places to release wolves! No wonder there were no wolves spotted! They were probably poached or ran off? These people are beyond ignorant, they are generations of breeding humans with no ability to feel empathy or identify with other living creatures. This, in any civilized, intelligent society anywhere in the universe would be considered child abuse. I guess this is Salmon’s version of quality time spent with their kids?

  2. They are probably pretty ticked that they didn’t score a wolf! Definitely proves who is the more intelligent of this “contest”! The whole thing is disgusting! And to think that our tax dollars are supporting the majority of the population in Salmon,Idaho because they are at a low poverty rate. Can we educate these people and require them to think before they kill?
