Predators and the Public Trust – important new paper!

4 November 2015. Predators and the Public Trust. This might be the most powerful professional paper written  to date on how wildlife is managed undemocratically for a minority interest, especially in regards to predators. This will surely trigger lawsuits and/or corrective legislative action and eventually more equitable management for predators and the people that study them. The take home point is that the present way of managing for narrow interests does not hold the trust (predators like wolves) as an asset for future generations. From the article: “lethal uses of predators need immediate scientific scrutiny to justify their proposed contribution to the public interest.”
