We are all for introductions, when the goal is not to populate the
species into a huntable commodity.
Wildlife “introductions” sound wonderful as touted by

That agenda is ultimately trapping or hunting yet another

species legal to hunt and not attempt to shoot any protected species.
It’s the law!
