We have to get over this notion that an individual problem wolf is somehow too sacred to kill. We do this with other animals all the time, whether swatting a mosquito or poisoning rats and mice, etc. What's the difference other than misdirected anthropomorphism that clouds this issue in almost every forum. Given the ready spread of wolves an individual like this will have little or no effect on the population dynamic of the recovery plan, and in fact may well prevent future wolf deaths if these particular wolves are not allowed to teach their offspring the same behavior.
