This sickens me, the point of population contriol in predators is to a) keep the population of the predator healthy and b) to keep the prey populations from being´╗┐ depleted to much. If there really are too many wolves then both prey, wolves and other predators will suffer and so it makes sense to keep wolf numbers in check, however to hunt wolves so that there is more game for human hunters missing the point of convervation entirely it is grotesque and barbaric, and I am deeply ashamed of it.
