They are concerned about the decreasing game populations they rely on for sustenance. So they're happy to get rid of them.

Meanwhile, we keep reading the other side insisting wildlife aren't affected in the wolf states.

"Wolf Conservation and Management According to the CCTFWD Management Plan and reconfirmed by Tribal Member input (through a web-based survey, informational flyers, and public meetings), the management of gray wolves on the Colville Reservation is important to the Colville Tribal People. Wildlife managers must strike a balance between: 1) maintaining a subsistence culture dependent upon thriving ungulate populations capable of providing sustenance to the Tribal membership, and 2) the recovery of gray wolf populations. Understanding the relationship of gray wolves and ungulate populations and their movement patterns across the landscape will ultimately promote informed management decisions that will benefit both wolf recovery and the maintenance of existing ungulate populations that are vital to the people and culture. For gray wolf recovery to be a success on Colville Tribal lands, it is imperative to continually monitor gray wolf distribution and abundance in order to define annual gray wolf harvest quotas that will achieve the management needs of both wolf conservation and the maintenance of healthy thriving ungulate populations for the Tribal Membership. " Source google search, this tribe and its reaction to wolfs, past and present.

THEY WERE SMART ENOUGHT TO INCLUDE IN THEIR MANAGEMENT PLAN, WOLF POPULATION CONTROL PER HARVEST QUOTAS. YEA, A GOOD WAY TO HELP IN HARVEST QUOTAS IS TO SHIP OFF 15 WOLVES TO COLORADO. Smart!
