No room for wolves


To the Editor:

What a truly wonderful guest editorial you printed recently. 

Every word Jim Ward wrote are the exact words of our family and friends: These wolves do not belong here, except maybe in a zoo-like setting.

We also have witnessed our deer and elk herds and even family pets become prey for these mighty non-selective, protected animals.

I also applaud The Observer for having printed Mr. Ward’s rebuttal to Mr. Sykes in our local newspaper.
