Notes on his speech-
I guess by now Beers needs no introduction, but the themes he expresses show the anti-wolf folks are really just part of tea party eruption with their efforts to nullify the laws of the United States. He would make the Southern Confederates of Civil War days proud, IMO.
The notes below were taken by someone very familiar with wild wolves who prefers not to have their name released as they don’t want to be “hassled.”
Here are my notes from the talk Jim Beers gave at BSU on Feb. 16:
There were about 150 people in the crowd, including many couples. The average age was 50. More men than women. No kids or teens. There were at least 6 members of the Idaho legislature present, and several members of Crapo’s staff.
In the lobby beforehand was a raffle that included items such as an Alaskan wolf pelt ($900) and the thing most people were standing in line for, an engraved “SSS” rifle.

Beers was introduced by Maurice Clements as a great American who has been relentlessly harassed by the USFWS.
