One of the reasons I wanted to work for the USDA forestry division is because I wanted to work with the reintroduction and preservation of apex predators.
Wolves are an apex predator. If they kill a few cattle on Federal land leased at ungodly cheap rates, tough cookies. It should be the price paid for having such cheap rates.
When deers starve, the strong ones survive, improving the health of the following generations. I would much rather see an old, maimed, or sickly deer die of starvation than see the prized buck mounted on someone's wall. Humans impact wildlife in the reverse order of natural selection. Starvation, sickness, predation remove the right individuals.
Apex predators are doing just fine where they are there is no need to introduce them to populated areas. I bet you think humans should move out of those areas their ancestors populated 4 and 5 generations ago too...
In reply to the OP, this is crazy! im glad they let you go over it, but did they let you keep the fruit or was it confiscated as 'stolen goods'? lol..
