Let us tell our representatives to put forward legislation to allow the sale of a well-controlled number of predator hides, meat and body parts.
We know there is a great international demand for gall-bladders, claws, skulls, and every body part of predators.
We must require that all meat, hides and parts be harvested either for personal use, or sold, or donated to charities, so there is no waste, and so their spirits are honored.
This market incentive is needed to effectively and efficiently gain control of predator numbers, which are now out of control. A 5 percent state sales tax is suggested to be levied on these sales to enforce all laws that enhance our public lands and manage our wildlife.
