By "alarmist" I'm not sure whether you're referring to this thread or the articles linked in the thread.

The thread is clearly indicated as "Preliminary Steps", so I don't know how one could conclude the the thread is "alarmist".

House Moves to Encourage Drilling in National Parks


https://www.npca.org/articles/1462-hous ... lqbyre4pi8


Congressman Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) last night introduced H.J. Res. 46, which seeks to repeal updates to the National Park Service’s “9B” rules. The rules require detailed planning and set safety standards for oil and gas drilling inside the more than 40 national parks that have “split estate” ownership, where the federal government owns the surface but not the subsurface mineral rights.



These challenges are direct attacks on America’s national parks. Each of these rules provides the commonsense protections for national parks that millions of Americans demand. If the Park Service’s drilling rules are repealed, national parks across the country would be subjected to poorly regulated oil and gas drilling, threatening parks’ air, water and wildlife.


From the link below, you can see that GTNP is on the list of initial targets.

Yellowstone Related News and Politics • Re: Wolf Escapes Yellowstone Bear World; Killed by Owner

Sad event,most tranquilizer guns are air rifles(CO2) and the caliber has to be the size of the drug syringe,larger the animal,larger the syringe.You would probably have to be pretty close to dart a wolf due to the limited range of a tranquilizer gun.

Yellowstone Related News and Politics • Re: Wolf Escapes Yellowstone Bear World; Killed by Owner

Pretty sad that the owner of a quasi-zoo isn't better prepared for this type of incident. Obviously the owner took the most expedient route to resolve the issue, maybe do to liability concerns. However, you would think he could have almost as easily shot the wolf with a tranquilizer dart or just lured it back with food placed in strategic locations. (I'm not sure if a standard rifle will shoot a tranquilizer dart or whether you need a special rifle, but if the owner wants to make a profit by running this type of operation, then he should invest in more humane solutions to an escaped animal.) This surely won't be the last time an animal escapes.

Yellowstone Related News and Politics • Wolf Escapes Yellowstone Bear World; Killed by Owner

I just heard about this yesterday...sort of sad how it seems that the owner just defaulted to killing the animal instead of attempting to lure it back or using some sort of tranquilizer.

I haven't visited this place because they breed their own animals...prefer to visit places with more of a wildlife rescue objective. Curious what you all think.

Any thoughts ? Locals or otherwise?

Grizzlies are already present in B.C. north of Vancouver a bit.
