Yeah, well, there is no massive support for wolves, bighorn sheep, etc. 
in ranching territory. That in combination with the violence the 
ranchers have been using with the connivance of local lawmen who have 
the same reactionary outlook means that there will be encroachment on 
natural habitats. I don't think it is "liberal" to demand that the cops 
do their job. In the Deep South, civil rights workers were being killed 
left and right in the early 60s. The movement demanded that the FBI find 
the killers and arrest them at the same time they held press conferences 
and organized rallies. And after they arrested some KKK members, the 
campaign continued to find them guilty. Demanding equal treatment by the 
cops and courts is a democratic demand. We are for democratic demands.
