Thanks to the Trump Administration’s delisting of wolves, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho had the chance to lead in the management of wolf recovery, and in the process prove that Western states could, and should, take back forest and wildlife public lands management from the feds.
Instead they promptly showed that when it came to the disastrous predator removal policies initiated 150-years ago, they had “learned nothing and forgotten nothing.”
The state agencies’ policies are especially bad for elk and cattle because wolves and other predators are the best natural control for the brucellosis and CWD epidemics rampaging through Yellowstone’s deer, elk and bison herds.
Subsoil contour plowing is an excellent way to increase water absorption in the desert grasslands of far-West Texas and Southern New Mexico. The effectiveness of the practice is shown in these before-and-after comparisons.
