The issue of wolf introduction has become a hot topic in many of the western states.
In an effort to prevent the potential harm caused by the artificial introduction of wolves into the Southern Rockies, Utah Representative Logan Wilde has introduced a concurrent resolution that opposes the introduction of wolves into Utah.
House Concurrent Resolution 19 does the following:
-acknowledges efforts to introduce wolves into the Southern Rockies;
-discusses the impacts of the introduction of wolves in Idaho and Wyoming;
-presents harms to the state should wolves travel into Utah;
-provides that the Legislature and Governor oppose the artificial human introduction of wolves into the Southern Rockies; and
-calls upon governmental entities to block efforts to force wolves on Utah.
Finally, HCR19 resolves that the Utah Legislature and Governor will call upon the President of the United States, the Department of Interior and the United States Congress to block efforts to force wolves on the state of Utah.
