Everything in balance. We need predators; uncontrolled, their prey cause a lot of damage. Witness the rise of deer in North America. There are now more than when Europeans came here. I read somewhere that deer now are found in every state of the US and every Canadian province. Over grazing prevents new growth of trees, then more erosion. Too damn many of them around here, we have an increasing number of deer/vehicle collisions every year. On top of that fewer young people are hunting, too busy indoors playing video games? Who will be the predator now?
Nothing wrong with wolves, we need them, and if their numbers get too high, there is nothing wrong with a controlled hunt.
