    There are so many legitimate, pressing environmental problems today that these groups would increase their credibility and actually do our country some good if they would focus their efforts on something constructive; water quality, stopping the Las Vegas water grab, preserving wild lands, air pollution, stopping commercialization of national forests, ad infinitum. Protecting feral horses and donkeys, trying to restore the pre-settlement population of wolves and other quixotic goals are fools' errands. They dilute and discredit the environmental movement.

    Animal advocates are fighting a losing battle and government does not care about animals or wild life as long as developers, states, and business can take the land and develop it and pretend the country is recovering from an economic recession.

    The biggest problem for the environment is clean air environmentalist out to destroy the wilderness and subterranean earth dozens of miles below the ground and out of sight. The land is dead and no longer able to support wildlife or what nature has created and animals can't win but a temporary reprieve.

    The wolf and wild life will naturally die off by attrition and loss of habitat and prey making all efforts to restore extinct animal populations a priority. Feral dogs and cats are the new wildlife also protected by state laws and pet stores who provide the new feral wildlife.

    The ground is dehydrated, trees and forest are dying, and H20 is becoming a precious element as we deplete and remove billions of barrels of water from the environment by toxic commercial and human consumption. Fires are more common and fire departments are blaming human hikers for the scorched earth environment reaching the North and South poles.
