I note that there is one thing for which there is an iron-clad guarantee about people: They won't go away. They also have this bad habit of agribusiness, and, as well, enjoy hunting. In order to do either, they control whatever forms of predation which have negative impacts.
Re-introduction of a predator creates conflict. Unfortunately, those supporting re-introduction are rarely either farmer/rancher types nor do they hunt. Their lives and incomes don't see negative impact.
