Wildlife pushed out by human entitlement

Jonathan Thompson’s editorial pointing out the conflict of the human interface with the effort to protect bighorn sheep in the Teton Range echoes the entire history of the European “discovery” and settlement of the Americas, a “land of opportunity” seen here simply for the taking, an entitlement that built our modern world, now seemingly intent on destroying the Earth’s wonder.
