I adore the Yellowstone area of Wyoming.
Grand Teton National Park is also one of my favorite spots to visit.
I've never seen such breathtaking scenery before or since. I've been literally aching to get back.
Wyoming, I hear you about the wolves. I know they were reintroduced in order to keep the balance of prey/predator more even, but why on earth anyone thought they'd 'know' to stay within Park boundaries is beyond me.
As the packs grow they need more territory, and each pack won't willingly give up their own territory for another, so they expand to different areas. I'm no scientist, but I could have predicted what's been happening.
They're thinking about reintroducing elk to Virginia. I have no idea why. We're frickin' overrun with white tail deer, so hey, let's bring back even BIGGER deer! The only predator we have that can take down a white tail is coyote, so I foresee an explosion of elk unless they reintroduce wolves.
I wonder if these biologists actually think things through?
