"There's no way you can escape the conclusion that there's some agenda at work here other than the Endangered Species Act or other than the environment. It's all about power and money and control," Mr. Walcher said. "There's a reason they haven't reintroduced grizzly bears in California, and of course there's a lot of cynical Westerners like me who say if they want to reintroduce wolves, let's put them in Boulder where they want them. But that isn't where they go."
"As is obvious with the wolf, we're talking about a species that is not in danger of extinction by any definition or any standard," said Greg Walcher, former head of the Colorado Department of Natural Resources and author of Smoking Them Out: The Theft of the Environment and How to Take It Back (American Tradition Institute, 2013.).
