Fish & Wildlife propose hunting Red Wolf

Im not a "Farmer" but it seems to me it would make more sense to compensate the farmer for the lost livestock instead of allowing for a species to be made extinct. I would bet that most "lost livestock" are probably chickens or small animals not horses or cows.
Extinction is forever! Livestock are not endangered and can be replaced.
How many people can distinguish the Red Wolf, from the coyote, and all the other mixed breed wild canines?
