I have read several articles in your paper about the wolves and they remind me of a few years back; when the Peregrine falcon had a nest on public or private property, everyone had to stay eight hundred feet away from the nest. A pair of Peregrine falcons made a nest on the Fremont Bridge in Portland and when a well-known politician of the time reminded the people of Portland of the eight hundred foot restriction, they laughed at him.

The people who want the wolves do not live where the wolves live. If they want four breeding pair in the state I would suggest the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife trap and relocate the four pair — the first pair to Washington Park in Portland, the second pair to Forest Park in Portland, the third pair to Baker Park in Eugene and the fouth pair on the Oregon State Capitol grounds in Salem.
