Janet Hoben ("Where are the wolves?" Forum, July 11) questions why Utah legislators have such intense hatred for wolves. The answer seems simple: Republican state and federal legislators have discovered that their strategy of hating gays, women and undocumented immigrants isn't so popular at the ballot box anymore.
Hence they need a new target, besides Barack Obama, to blame all society's ills on. So, let's fault and hate wolves!
