    Get rid of Matheson and Chaffetz, not wolves.

    This bill solves the issue around the states.... if states want wolves they will have them under this bill. If they don't they won't. There has been enough tax dollars spent on this animal to build brand new high schools in almost every state in the union! Enough is enough! The animal has eroded the effectiveness of the Endangered Species Act. Putting the Gray wolf in the same catagory as the Black footed Ferret or Whooping Crane is absurd!

    I'm sure it makes sense to "establish" the gray wolf in Washington D.C. too, or Florida, or other places they never were and would never survive in. Such idiocy policy only guarantees that environmentalists get their way forever.

    I'm sure this bill greatly conflicts Jim Matheson. He is such an environmental true believer, it's shocking that he would even consider allowing state control of anything--but then he is up for relection, so time to throw a couple of bones to his constituents.

    This is a necessary and important thing for Utah. We need to be able to control our own environmental and wildlife policies. And since when have all 50 states had to have a thriving population of anything to be declassified as endangered? What a joke! Thank you Chaffetz and thankyou Matheson, who is now behaving like a conservative to try to help his reelection bid. Don't be fooled by Matheson though. He won't stay conservative for long. Only until after the election.
