But thats all a wolf is though, a wild dog.
It was by using the idea of natural selection that humans could breed dogs from wolves.

Until you witness the issue first hand, you have little idea of what you're talking about.

All I'm saying is that all dogs are decendents of wolves.

I have a lot of family in WY that have lived their a long time and raised horse etc. I also have a lot of family that are farmers, and some family who work in coal mines. I understand that it is hard on farmers and ranchers. Coyotes and other animals are hard on farmers here, and environmental restrictions are hard on coal mine workers. You can't discount a species just because they interfere with human activity, and humans can't just do whatever they want, they need to work with the environment, it needs to be a compromise.
Paying attention to only human needs have gotten us into many bad situations, and always end up hurting humanity in the end anyway. (*cough cough* global warming, ddt, etc)

You should add that it hurts humanity more than the intended species.

Another person who likes the Tiger! I'm glad I'm not the only one.

Well they're not really endangered because they're a cross-breed. It's a male lion and a female tiger. =]

The other version is a Tigon, a cross-breed of a male tiger and a female lion.
