Interesting wolf-related story on the Joe Rogan podcast the other night. Joe was relating stories about how wildlife management in B.C. Was being driven by public opinion polling of Vancouver urbanites (the BC grizzly season was just closed down),and he mentioned a rancher who had been issued depredation tags for wolves. A news story brought him unwanted notoriety among social justice animal rights warriors, and he, his wife, and his kids started receiving death threats via the internet. To shut it down, the rancher issued a very public statement: for every death threat sent to him and his family, he promised to gutshoot a wolf so it could die a lingering painful death. Threatening emails and social media posts stopped immediately.
