"weeeding out the sick,the lame and the old there by actually helping the herd become stronger by ensuring only the best genes are past forward."
This statement is false. Do you realize that wolves can take down moose and elk? Do you honestly think that there is a whitetail deer alive in Wisconsin today that the wolves couldn't kill? Christ, in Clam Lake they appeared to figure out how to hunt down prime breeding age cow elk as they cut from the herd to give birth. Those weren't sick, lame, or old. You need to take a look at the physical capabilities of the wolf before making a statement like that. It would be like me saying that you could toss Clay Matthews on the field of a pee-wee footbal game and it would be competitive and that only the best players would survive. He would murder them, all. He is physically capable of sticking it to 320# offensive tackles. Try again.
Also, have you ever read up on the wolf moose study in Isle Royale? When wolves crossed the ice and made it to the island, the researches thought exactly that would happen. That the wolves would settle into a baseline with the moose population and that x amount of wolves would consume y amount of sick, lame, and old moose each year and it would be a balanced healthy population of both. Well, that hasn't happened much to the surprise of the experts who had been claiming that is how wolves are. No, the wolves could kill anything and would do so until the population of prey would crash. Then the moose would spike, then the wolves would spike, and it kept being cyclical. Lately, the moose have had some other issues, but you get the point.
