    • The Donald is playing to all the people who have the attention span of a slug plus a liking for the inane and sensational. Slugs have an excuse.

  1. That is a problem with bans–they can be overturned. And, yes, red wolves are endangered. Some sanctuaries, such as Wolf Haven, are allowed to breed them captivity in order to avoid extinction. The coyote hunters will probably kill any red wolves they see and claim they thought they shot a coyote. When it comes to a chance for killing, hunters can’t seem to tell a deer from an elk, a wolf from a dog, or a moose from a horse.

  2. “Coyotes are nonnative and invasive – they’re very destructive to the native wildlife,” Cook said in an email.” Cook doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Coyotes are native and imbued with special talents in stories of indigenous people. Permitting nighttime hunting with lights is extremely cruel. People should read up on co-existing with coyotes instead of satisfying their blood thirst. http://www.projectcoyote.org/
