This is a really messed up story.
A young woman researcher was forced to climb to safety after being stalked and then attacked by a pack of at least 3 Grey Wolves.
It gets worse.
After making contact with local authorities, who immediately requested  helicopter assistance because the woman was in a remote area, (3 hours by foot) The Washington State agency told local law enforcement that helicopters were not permitted to startle wolves due to their protected species status.
After insistent pleas made by the local police, the State agency decided to make an exception  allowing the use of a helicopter in
the rescue effort.
Apparently the wolves' well being is more valuable than human beings to this particular agency. Thanks to  local law enforcement and the Department of Natural Resources (Federal)
in persuading this crazy State agency to do what should have been a  "no-brainer".
People have really become second class citizens and are apparently expendable to other species of which have acquired protective status.

Washington State is also one of the States that simply refuse to work with Federal Immigration law enforcement putting it's citizens in peril by allowing dangerous foreign criminals sanctuary within it's borders.
Once again, making people (Americans) second class citizens.
These crazy governors need to go!

Oh wolves have similar protective status in EU. Shit is out of hand. I think it's ok to startle a wolf that's threatening a human 13.gif

Bureaucrats that have nothing better to do than enforce pointless laws and ordinances are a constant in the universe.

Skewed priorities. Whatever you do, don't interrupt them from doing nothing.

People here "take care of them" if they get too close to the villages.  Romania killed or relocated 140 bears and 97 wolves following a rise in the number of attacks on people last fall.

Quote:In July, two shepherds were seriously injured in a bear attack in the Carpathian region.

A month earlier, authorities were forced to temporarily close the famous Poenari Castle—the inspiration for Bram Stoker's gothic novel "Dracula"—after tourists came face to face with a mother bear and her three cubs.

I'm pretty sure it was a reluctance to break Federal and state laws that was the problem. Typical politicians don't consider incidents when they make knee jerk reaction laws like that.

Those wolves went after a person and need to be put down. The next person they encounter may not be so lucky.

I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971

It's actually worse than that,
They now want to reintroduce Grizzly bears to the northern Cascades.
We already have the wolves, cougar and black bears.
How many Apex species do we need?
Is it really right to make the forest more dangerous for camping and hiking just so a few tree hugging leftist could feel warm and fuzzy?
Apparently, they believe that recreational use of the forest is racist
It's true.
