I am a conservationist who is interested in working towards wolf reintroduction in Scotland. I am curious to find out what anyone who may be affected by such a reintroduction thinks about it. Therefore I would welcome any comments and discussion on the topic.
I am also not adverse to stalking or hunting and feel that if control of a wolf population was to be at least in part regulated by sporting estates (who would keep all fees paid by those wishing to shoot a wolf during a given season) then it could be valuable source of income to estates. Obviously it would be hoped that a wolf population would regulate deer numbers and allow the continuation of the strongest genes as they mainly predate on weak or sick animals. This would hopefully reduce the need for expensive culls which seem to be causing huge difficulty for estate owners.
Please let me know what you think, I understand this can be an unpopular subject for many people and no offense is intended by discussing the subject!
