Re: Stress, pneumonia revealed to have killed Isle Royale wolves

Thanks, I was wondering what happened to the male who made it to the island after checking out the winter report.

Re: Annual Isle Royale report divulges drama on wolves

Fascinating stuff! The longtime pair look strikingly alike. Interesting that the female consistently rebukes the males advances in recent times. I wonder if it is related to their deformed pup that died; I'm not sure if wolves can make that sort of inference. Something has changed since then anyhow...

Re: WQ 2.7 costs $10. Is it worth it?

Despite WQ 3.0 being a free upgrade if you already bought 2.7, I'd be happy to contribute some more dollars to the new version! Happy to see this project still gaining traction :).

Re: Forum Suggestions V2

It looks clunky, but you're going to have to tell me if it works - if nothing else, your name seems to be clickable when the user id is provided even if the post ID and time are not. I got the Notification for this, but I suppose the real test would be on a topic one has not commented on before! ED...

Re: Copycat Roblox game of WolfQuest

I think your explanation of copyright here is very good Frodo1! I agree with you that this is not a threat to WQ--if anything, it could direct new people seeking a better experience to this game.

Cool find though tammyu!

Re: Forum Suggestions V2

I just thought of a potential workaround to pinging a user. Let's say you are commenting on a topic that User X has never commented on before. If you used quote code with their username, would the user get a notification for the topic anyway? I haven't tested this out or seen an example of it, but ...

Re: Vest footage of wolves attacking a hunting dog (Content Warning)

I googled in finnish and man those vests are quite expensive! They seem to do their job though. I have seen another video like this and heard of many similiar cases. Not sure what to think. The dogs are in a lot of danger it seems if the owner is some distance away and unable to protect the dog... ...

Re: First test of oral rabies vaccine brings hope

They have a similar program being implemented in Ontario, Canada right now, but it is targeted to racoon, fox, and skunk. The ads were coming up on my Facebook news feed. Many people were voicing their concerns in the comments, but they seemed to be very on top of replying which was nice. Mostly, p...

Re: Wolf Chat

That scratch reflex sounds adorable! Was doing some research in my copy of Wolves: Behavior, Ecology and Conservation by L. David Mech and found out that sometimes wolves can travel for huge distances for seemingly no reason (OR7, anyone?), displaying a focus similar to their 'homing' behavior if t...

Re: Common Themes for Wolf/Wild Animal Fiction?

I didn't mention this one in my earlier post because I hadn't thought it out yet, but to expand on Flamesky's comment about markings, I realized that animal fiction also commonly makes use of animals' overall body colorations to signify their morality, status, or social values. The popular colors b...

Re: Common Themes for Wolf/Wild Animal Fiction?

Cool topic! I haven't read any of the books you guys have mentioned other than Jack London's pair, but I do agree that the "classic" depiction of a hierarchical pack where there is an "alpha" or leader figure is a common theme in animal books, and I think it's because of its utility for character d...

Re: Herd Any Good Names? (Help us name the elk herds!)

Maybe larger herds could have longer names and smaller herds shorter names. I like this idea, though I'm not sure how you would standardize this. Hmm, maybe by number of syllables in the herd name? That would convert herd names into categorical data with defined ranges of deer numbers: 1-syllable n...

Re: Vest footage of wolves attacking a hunting dog (Content Warning)

What happened to the wolves? Unknown, beyond them running off when Klara's owner approached (translation from Swedish with some edits to improve readability): At the end of [the video], she is just lying down and panting, she seems to have given up. - I never [appeared in the video], but shortly af...
