A leader in the Oregon Legislature is taking heat for his response to foreigners who gave their opinion protecting wolves. State Senate Minority Leader Ted Ferrioli says he doesn't need any advice from foreigners about protecting wolves. He sent a blunt reply to a South African singer living in Greece when she wrote him about keeping wolves on the endangered species list. Ferrioli says input from European union residents make no difference to him, and that he should be writing EU Ministers to stop bailing out Greece because he says it's a ``haven for morons.''  The Oregonian reports that wolf advocates from around the world are demanding an apology. Ferrioli says he's ignoring them.  But, as of this morning, Ferrioli has a – somewhat -change of heart and says “I offer my sincere apology to the citizens of Greek extraction wherever they may reside.”
