A Word About Protected Wildlife

A Word About Protected Wildlife

By Ken K. Gourdin

Apparently, a reward has been offered for information leading to the apprehension and conviction of (an) unknown person(s) who killed a protected Montana gray wolf in Yellowstone National Park.  For Salt Lake Tribune coverage, see here (last accessed May 30, 2017): http://www.sltrib.com/home/5287418-155/10k-reward-offered-for-killer-of .  I think, perhaps, that the priorities of some may be a bit out of whack when it comes to their reaction to the killing of protected wildlife versus the killing of human beings.  Therefore, I responded:

I don’t condone the killing of this wolf, or of other protected wildlife, in any way. If one disagrees with wildlife protection measures and management policies, one should confine his efforts to change them to legal means. That said, why do I have the sneaking suspicion that the investigation into who killed this wolf likely will be more thorough than many of the investigations undertaken to find out who killed humans?

About kenngo1969

Just as others must breathe to live, I must write. I have been writing creatively almost ever since I learned to write, period! I have written fiction, book- and article-length nonfiction, award-winning poetry, news, sports, features, and op-eds. I hope, one day, to write some motivational nonfiction, a decent-selling novel, a stage play, and a screen play.
