Re: Digger driver finds 2000-year-old wolf remains in Suther

Would be interesting to get a DNA sample from it. I've always been curious on whether the extinct British wolves were a distinct subspecies.

Re: 2002 'review' of wolf attacks on humans

Really needs an update, particularly for North America, considering two people have died since its publication 16 years ago.

Considering the tiger-wolf situation in Russia's far east, won't the natural expansion of Jaguars into the southeastern US pose problems for them expansion and increase of endangered Mexican wolf populations?

Re: Interviewing Dr. David Mech [Deadline removed]

If it is eventually found out that the red wolf is in fact a distinct species, wouldn't it still make more sense from a phylogenetic perspective to class it as a specialised large bodied form of coyote with some superficial wolf like traits due to convergent evolution?

Re: Wolves prey on dogs during Wisconsin bear hunts

A risk that needs to be taken if wolves are to be an accepted part of local fauna. I hardly wish to tell the bear hunters how to do their job (my own experience as a hunter is merely with rabbits, pheasants and squirrels), but I think it would be worth it to coat their dogs with body armour, or at l...

Re: Article: Bringing more wolves to Isle Royale

Considering the wolves of Isle Royale are such recent arrivals, and have barely had enough time to develop into a unique subspecies, I say let them and their moose die off, then reintroduce the animals that nature intended to be there (the coyotes and lynx which Koa mentioned). Wolves have plenty of...

Re: Wolves and Leopards

Surprisingly, I can't find any accounts of the two interacting, despite the fact that both occur in India, Nepal, the Caucasus and Far Eastern Russia. Still, it's fun to speculate. Would a wolf ever fight or chase off a leopard, or would a leopard be more likely to do that to a wolf? A lone wolf wou...

Re: Latest on red/eastern wolf taxonomy

I just read the study, and it seems like there are coyote genes in ALL North American grey wolves (obviously not as many as in eastern/red wolves), including those in Alaska, where eastern/red wolves have never lived. This is significant, as the pro-distinct species crowd previously stated that the ...

Fragment from http://www.wolfsongnews.org/news/Alaska_current_events_3015.html The latest brawl occurred in October between the Clear Creek Butte and Tatlanika packs. Judging from what he can piece together from his tracking flights, the Tatlanika Pack traveled more than 40 miles out of its territor...
