Re: Yellowstone's 'Famous' Alpha Female Shot and Killed

Agreed. The sole reason the killing of this wolf is making headlines and creating "controversy" is because it was a collared and publicly recognized wolf. But as stated, this wolf was legally shot - just because an animal is collared doesn't mean it cannot be hunted. Collared wolves are just wolves ...

Re: Wisconsin Senate approves wolf hunt bill!

Wolves do participate in surplus killing when it comes to their diet. This hunting going on in Wisconsin is beside the "bloodthristy" point, though; I think a lot of folks have come away from that and are more for or against the issue of cattle; in addition to that statement, I think a lot of pro-w...

Re: The Shaun Ellis criticism thread

With all due respect to Mr. Ellis, he doesn't portray himself in a way that would make any sensible person believe he's well-educated about wolves and their behavior. Many of his claims are unrealistic, inaccurate, and unscientific. He is very biased towards these animals, and that bias comes across...

Re: Russian Woman Attacked By Lone Wolf

Whether people want to admit or not, it's already been established that wolves all over the globe are losing their fear towards humans (this is proven by biologists such as Mark McNay and Valerius Geist). Habituated wolves are usually perfectly healthy individuals and attack completely unprovoked - ...

Re: Wolves in Zoos-Discussion

The wolves were frightened. They paced around their cages. I could see a visible trail on the outline of the cage where they had paced. A majority of zoos have a so-called "no-touch" policy in place - which basically means that none of the animals have been hand-reared, trained, socialized or condi...

Re: The Wolf Boards: Your suggestions

Re: Wolves continue to plague Minnesota livestock owners

The DNR doesn’t believe the killing of up to 700 wolves this year – which would include 400 allotted in the hunting and trapping seasons and those killed in depredation cases – will hurt the wolf population, estimated at 3,000. Critics of the hunt disagree. “For them to say this season will have no...

Re: Are today's wolves preserved too much or not?

Excellent topic, Koa. Gray wolves are definitely being preserved too much in North America. Protecting a species that doesn't require any protection whatsoever is unreasonable. Canada alone has a healthy and stable population of 52,000-60,000 wolves. United States has an increasing population of aro...
