    Unless I missed it, surprised there haven't been any Twilight references. Don't you guys that fish Steelhead on the OP see wolves all the time? I guess it might be hard to tell since they can change back and forth from human to wolf...

    Jim,

    I suspect you were probably in more danger from the wild dogs than you would be from wolves.

    Don't agree with the message here, but it reminds me of a T shirt a buddy of mine who was an air force fast mover pilot wore during Desert Storm--A crosshairs on a an arab with an AK riding a camel. It said "I'd walk a mile to smoke a camel". Loved that message.

    Not even close to true (the part about "too many"). Florida panthers are extremely endangered and they are hit by cars. There are even stretches of highway with vastly reduced speed zones and flashing lights and signs and they get hit. When the population is tiny, each kill is devastating. And, by the way, from what I hear you don't want to get caught speeding in one of those zones, although a lot of people do. As to Gary's other point, the guy who did the hit and run on this wolf should be nailed.

    Hey.... the wolf was on the road without any insurance. Car guy has to pay for the wolf's negligence. Probably didn't have a license either. And was a migrant wolf without a green card.

    At one time, "commies" and "reds" were the bad guys. Nowadays, it's "wolves". I suppose it could be worse and we could be dealing with "commie red wolves".

    Nope... today the bad guys are moderates. The other two sides must hate them.

    I didn't think there were any moderates left. Certainly none in DC or on the news.

    Wolf threads, like the 'Jelly of the Month Club', is a gift that just keeps on giving!

    Close Kerry, the bad guys are the moderators for not putting the smack down early and often in the misguided spiraling threads of doom and chaos.
