Wolf Sanctuary Bill Pt 2
KRETZ ... "I just don't believe someone that has basically no apex predators for hundreds of miles should be able to tell those of us that are dealing with an overpopulation of wolves in Northeastern Washington and they have been completely unwilling to help us fix the problems we've got or deal with anything, so it's frustrating."
Kretz says it's more than an educational bill ...
KRETZ ... "I've had people say, oh you know, you should have taken the high road and, you know what, let's have the discussion because if you allow her bills to sit out there, another one precluding lion hunting, cougars, that's the statement out there and I'm always going to respond and I'm going to try and get a word in and now we're having this discussion and, trust me, multiple places around the state about how can we really, actually deal with issues we have with apex predators."
But, why couldn't Western Washington lawmakers come and see the problem first hand?
KRETZ ... "We have brought a few over, but with this bill we can deliver them right to them. I've had lots of offers from the 7th District, if you need my stock trailer, I'll bring a load of wolves."
Neither bill is expected to get a hearing, but serve to further discussion.
