If you're inclined to believe the Minneapolis StarTribune, you'd likely take their word for it. I, on the other hand, don't trust the red rag any farther than I can throw it. They've simply had their integrity proven moot too many times - thanks in large part to the local guys at Powerline blog !
To any Minnesotan, particularly a northern Minnesotan...to take out the wolf factor so quickly, simply doesn't smell right. I used to hunt in the northern wolf country and I know landowners up north; there can be no way of convincing them there are not too many wolves. The wolves are now federally protected again, to the dismay of most landowners.
Go read the Powerline take and read up on how the Startribune makes the case for global warming affecting just the moose in Minnesota.
