I know, someone said that and I almost punched him in the face, but then I saw the dean and the principal really close by and I knew if I did that I would have been expelled for sure..

Ive ever heard anyone say that. Well not infront of me. Because anyone who knows me knows that if they said anything bad about wolves they would get a punch or a every every long list of facts about wolves :D

That's a GOOD THING. England has too many deer, and they're stopping woodlands growing properly because they eat all the new growth. English deer have no predators apart from humans, and humans tend to hunt stags with big antlers, which isn't a very good plan for reducing the population.

When I went to the Anglian Wolf Society (anglianwolf.com) they said wolf reintroduction wouldn't work; that wolves would quickly spread from the highlands to down south, and come into all sorts of conflict with humans.

Opinions?
...What's a signature?

I'm almost always only around at weekends, so I'll reply slowly. Sorry. =(

Well, it would be an interesting idea. They've certainly had a long absence. But in that time, look at how much has changed. Our land has become extremely built up. Only fragments of forest remain, and even these are hardly peaceful and isolated from roads, farmland, etc. In the Scottish Highlands, maybe -- I watched a brilliant Natural World programme the other day featuring a man who was hoping to release animals like wolves, bears and moose on his private land, but I don't think it could get past the fenced in stage. And there is the issue of predation on farms. You might immediately go: "I hate farmers, who cares, wolves wolves all the way" but being a farmer's daughter I see the effects of foxes on our free range hens almost daily. If the amount they kill in the US is bad, then think how much a British wolf would depend on livestock. Most of our little patches of wilderness could maybe support a couple of wolves each, but when their numbers start to grow, they aren't gonna restrict themselves to a few deer. A wolf is an oppurtunist--fast deer or stupid sheep to satiate their bawling pups? What would you choose? And this isn't just about the wolves getting shot by farmers. British farmers have an awful time already -- tonnes of senseless red tape, meagre prices and awful diseases. I would love to see wolves back here, but it isn't the same world they left all those years ago. :)

Yeah. I'll listen to arguments from both sides, but it gets ridiculous when people start saying: "How can I ever let my little son outside if there are wolves about?" People should research their points before they say them.
