Of Wolves and Tapeworms - Rewriting Genesis

Via a participant at a hearing on wolves in north central Washington:

Top moment from yesterday's wolf hearing: An upstanding Okanogan County Commissioner expressed his concerns (yet again) on how wolves carry a danger of infecting us all with tapeworms. This took a while, so he got buzzed at the three minute limit. But he continued after the buzzer to add this morsel of ultimate relevance: "When I last read the bible, Adam and Eve were here before wolves." I'm not sure where in the chronology the tapeworms fall.

The Commissioner needs to reread Genesis, "And God said, 'Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds' ...And God saw that it was good. Then God said, 'Let us make man in our image, after our likeness' : So FIRST the wolves and tapeworms, THEN the people.
