From The Desert News: Sen. Allen Christensen, R-North Ogden, has proposed a bill that would require state wildlife officials to capture or kill all wild wolves that wander into Utah -- even those in areas where they're protected by the federal Endangered Species Act.
Christensen said he worries that wolves from neighboring states could eventually decimate Utah's elk and deer populations and hurt the livestock industry. . . .
Wolves were wiped out of Utah a century ago for good reason, he said.
"Their lifestyle isn't compatible with ours. People say that's a haughty attitude. I'm sorry, we're here to stay," Christensen said.
