To the editor:
First of all an antelope can go as fast as 60 mph, they like wide open grasslands, and the largest weight of a male is barely 120 pounds. These three factors would make them undesirable for a family of wolves. Wolves are very economical in their movements.
It also states that they were hunted into near extinction, saved by a closed season from 1905 to 1922. After they were managed, and without a natural predator their increased population almost exceeded the antelope's food supply. I am sorry that they are hesitant to jump fences -- must be like shooting fish in a barrel for hunters.
One more thing: I have volunteered for the Grand Canyon Wolf Recovery Project extensively and can with all honesty say that I have not asked one person for money. GCWRP educates the public and asks the public for their support.
