Upholding rural Americans' rights to grow food,
own property, and caretake our wildlife and natural resources.
Fish and Wildlife Service are being responsive.
NM Family's horse killed in his own corral (Miller family)
Trapping at this time of the year was not seen as an option because of winter storms making the area periodically inaccessible, difficulty with trapping in the snow (freezing traps, drifting), inability to target a single animal, and danger of injury or death to any animal trapped. IFT personnel remained in the area of the Millerís ranch through the week-end to haze wolves if they showed up.
They also placed 2 radiocollar-activated noise
and light (RAG) boxes in the vicinity of the
ranch. A third unsuccessful attempt to aerially
capture the Aspen male was made on 23 January. The
only uncollared Aspen animal seen turned out to be
a female pup of the year. The IFT will maintain a
presence in the area and continue hazing as
previously agreed upon. The IFT has been in daily
communication with the Millers, apprising and
coordinating appropriate responses. One response
currently under discussion is the deployment of
electrified flagging (turbo fladry) around the
vicinity of the house The Millers have indicated
they understand the hazing process and will
continue to work with the IFT to stop the nuisance
behavior by whatever means prove most effective).
