Killing wolves for a contest or to appease cattle ranchers is completely reckless and unacceptable. There is no “skill” or particular merit in riding around on snowmobiles, chasing and harassing wolves to the point of exhaustion and blasting them to bits with powerful rifles, all so someone can win some prize money.
“This is not about putting food on the table or feeding families, this is about feeding the egos of small men with big guns.“
