Homeless people that is.
Don Young Suggests Using Wild Wolves To End Homelessness
SMFH…this guy can NOT be serious.
Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska) suggested Thursday that the solution to homelessness is wolves.
Young made the comment during a House Natural Resources Committee hearing during an exchange with Interior Secretary Sally Jewell. He was arguing that gray wolves should be taken off the endangered species list, criticizing the National Park Service and his congressional colleagues who seek to protect the animals.
“How many of you have got wolves in your district? None. None. Not one,” Young said, calling the gray wolf “a predator.”
“We’ve got 79 congressmen sending you a letter, they haven’t got a damn wolf in their whole district,” Young added. “I’d like to introduce them in your district. If I introduced them in your district, you wouldn’t have a homeless problem anymore.”
Watch Young make the comments above.
A spokesman for Young told The Washington Post that the statement was meant to emphasize that “these predators pose serious threats to wildlife management and their listing has damaging impacts to local communities.”
Oh Republicans, showing your sensitive sides once again, eh?
