Not what I stated. I said that an area of Idaho in the plains has historically had high levels of elk UNTIL the wolves took over. I was speaking to one of my friends tonight who noted studies by an elk foundation finding the government numbers completely wrong. Instead of 700 Idaho wolves, they found over 3000.
I will try to find the link to the study. Your argument further defies what we know from the Bible that God created the earth and then put man in charge giving us dominion over all creatures. The eco argument fails because they remove man from the "natural" world, when in fact, God made the earth for man to inhabit and have dominion over it. The wolves in Idaho don't belong here and we created that mess.
Predation of wolves is our only way to manage the entire ecosystem at this time.
