Actually Wyoming is already very well versed in handling mining and environmental protection. I was born and raised in Campbell County where there is a very large coal mining industry. Outside of the active mines you would never know that mining took place there.
I think a lot of it depends on the region. Some areas the populations have natural checks on them, and Arizona would be a good example of a place where the natural checks would help keep the population under control. Between the mountain lions and dry climate the population can’t go as crazy as it can in regions with few large predators and lots of water.
Where I’m at the little bastards are all over the place and just demolish the landscape, and they’re vicious as can be. They live close to people and are pretty damn aggressive. I remember driving out of my old apartment complex one night and seeing something beside the road and thinking how strange it was that someone left a love seat sitting there, and then I saw the thing moving and rooting around. Biggest dang boar I’ve ever seen in person by a long shot. It wasn’t hogzilla big, but it had to have been 4+ feet from snout to butt.
