Imagine being afraid to let your children play outside in your backyard.
Imagine being concerned about walking to your garage.
Imagine not being able to protect your animals.
Imagine finding your animals strewn all over your property dead and with horrific wounds.
Imagine being promised reimbursement for hundreds of thousands of dollars in business losses caused by government policy and having to fight for years to receive a small portion.
This is what life is like for ranchers in Wyoming who have been subjected to ineffective Federal Grizzly Bear policies.
The Definition of Insanity is Doing the Same Thing Over and Over Again and Expecting Different Results
It is clear that the federal government, as well as environmentalist groups that influence policy, have not learned from past mistakes. The Grizzly bear issue in Wyoming is simply a mirror of a larger problem. The actions of man have upset environmental balance, not just in Wyoming but in other areas of the country. Over the last number of years, there have been many issues where the over protection of one species has unbalanced the ecosystem, leading to the devastation of other species and the development of unnatural behaviors.
