    Here's an article in the Spokane paper about billboards outside YNP requesting "saving the wolf".

    http://www.spokesman.com/photos/2013/jun/04/210940/

    It says 20% of YNP wolves have been killed in the Montana wolf season. What this means to me is the YNP wolf population is too robust for the territory/prey base and the wolves are expanding because of either or both.

    There were signs all over the entrance to barter faire last year saying wolf haters weren't welcome. I don't know why the signs were put up, they had no relevance to the barter faire, but they made me chuckle.

    You know... I was going to mention I thought it odd that a wolf thread hadn't been started in a number of weeks.... here it is! :)

    WaFF has more wolf threads than a furry convention.

    Things were too quiet. If no one wanted to hear about more wolf threads then why did the Spokane paper publish it. They're responsible, not me.

    Considering the volume of this topic, maybe a wolf forum is in order. UNLESS, this thing comes full circle and somehow ties into Fly Fishing. :eek:

    Too quiet, yes. I have pictures where Tri and I fly fish down a beautiful creek/river. Tracks everywhere. Big tracks. Fly Fishing has become not only about fishing and the process to watching your back outside in my neighborhood I fish.

    Does wolf hair make good wing material? Keeping it fly fishing related.

    I have similar thoughts whenever I see a coyote that didn't make it all the way across the road. I confess to having a roadkill problem. I think I would be in hog heaven if I came across a polar bear that got hit crossing the road while carrying a seal.

    Farmers will shoot anything on their land that eats their livestock. Can't really blame them for that.
     
  13. I eat 'livestock' all the time; in fact, I'm planning a bar-b-q tonight...

    I guess I'd better not set foot on their land, although they'd lose some business.

    Those Wolves that were planted in Jellystone Park have spread to all the states that suround the park. Here in Montana they go out and slay sheep for sport. Blame the planting of wolves on the goody two shoes. They felt that we needed the wolves out there in the park.
