I am glad ODFW is issuing more permits to "allow" rancher's to use lethal force to take out wolves that are killing their dogs and livestock. LOL, I am pretty sure as American's we have the right to defend our private property and livelihood without a "permit" from a phony government agency. I will take care of myself, ODFW, without your "permission". But thanks anyhow.


It was the wolves land first. Food for thought.


And the Native Americans owned your land before your ancestors took it from them. Are you prepared to hand it back to them? Didn't think for thought.
