To the editor:
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department says the new building is a win-win situation for the Big Horn Basin.
The only win is for the G&F personnel and the contractors in flaunting the new building. A perfect example of government out of control.
This new complex will not bring back the resources in the Basin that have been destroyed by the so-called “experts.” You can travel the Basin and see only a small fragment of all species of wildlife that used to be abundant here. Except predators. Those we have in abundance.
For years the area was teeming with our great game herds. The legislative mandate is that these herds were to be maintained in perpetuity for all to enjoy.
They have not been maintained. In fact, it is criminal what has happened to our wildlife, all to pay wages, retirement and large building, while over-selling our tags and not controlling predators. This, folks, is a disgrace to everyone in Wyoming, the resource owner. The culture, heritage and economic base are suffering and disappearing, all built up in former years by hunters.
It’s obvious that the new building is a slap in the face as their track record over 26 years has shown. It appears to be a socialistic agenda to do away with hunting, while tooting their own horns at the expense of our game herds, all for their advancement. Quite disgusting. Unacceptable performance by G&F.
