Re: Game Commission to get update on trapping ban

According to the 2010 population count data, there're 21 wolves living in the wild in New Mexico. Not sure on that one... Federal wildlife officials said Tuesday they have counted 50 endangered Mexican wolves on the Arizona-New Mexico border, up from 42 wolves a year earlier. Source: http://www.azc...

Re: Canis lupus tundrarum and Canis lupus pambasileus

It's too bad that alces has gone extinct. I would have liked to have been able to compare that subspecies to these two.

And indeed, I have heard of both of these two subspecies.

Re: Blood purity of wolves

I think it "ruins" the bloodline, but like you guys said, it might prove to be biologically useful. In addition to the black coat thing, introducing certain dog genes into the wolf population could have some beneficial and interesting effects on their biology. This random thought just popped into my...

Re: Enviros slam gray wolf delisting as unconstitutional

I knew somebody would challenge this. And I'm glad they did. While I will agree with wolves in the Northern Rockies being delisted, I was furious when I heard that the animal would be taken off of the list by this random legal rider that was tacked onto a budget bill. PLEASE, manage wolves according...

Re: OR: Wolf sighting reported near Cold Springs

I think the wolf-coyote hybrids--"coywolves"--are prevalent in the eastern United States; Oregon is in the western United States.

But I suppose it's possible that it was some sort of wolf-coyote hybrid; it's always biologically possible for wolves and coyotes to breed, regardless of location.

Re: MN: Another wolf push is on

I personally support this. These three states seem to be much more sensible about wolf management than the states in the Northern Rockies, in my opinion. The gray wolves in these states are recovered, and have been for a long time now. But federal regulators have added a new twist by using genetic s...

Re: Wolves and Huskies

Look back when humans were not evolved yet, the dog was wild, it might have bread with a wolf and made a smaller bread of wolf that is mixed with another kind of dog. The human might have found an easier way of companioning with the dog and then pups were born, raised and domesticated. You mean to ...

Re: Chase Community Giving- Support Wolves!

Normally advertising-type topics like this aren't allowed, but seeing as WolfQuest is supported by the International Wolf Center, I think it's perfectly reasonable for us to help them out a little bit in return. :] I've personally already voted for them, but I highly encourage anybody who hasn't don...

Re: False advertising of wolfdogs

The whole Mexican Gray Wolf claim is as false as it can be. Currently, there're about 60 of Mexican Grays in the wild, and since they're an endangered subspecies, I seriously doubt no person can privately own (let alone breed) them (excluding professional animal research centers, wolf parks, and zo...

Re: Top Dogs Got Killed?

Please read this quote posted by WQ Coordinator in 2007: Let’s talk about pack hierarchy. If you don’t want to read a lot, here is the gist of this message. In WolfQuest, the only pack members that will be distinguished in any way are the dominant wolves, also known as the breeding pair. Studies hav...
