    Right? I have seen the entry/exit of a .44 mag before......and especially a dome shot.....seems like part of that dogs cap should be dangling from it's head.

    Maybe the media hasn't reported it because the "facts" are murky to say the least. It is a well known fact that most dyed in the wool Idahoan elk hunters resent the wolves tremendously and have been praying for an attack on humans to justify a legal route to extermination.

    There's quite a difference between being "attacked" by a wild animal, and being "charged" by one. Being no expert on wolf behavior, one could assume that an animal that close had intent. However, not seeing a scratch on that woman, and a very clean kill, IMHO, this is just anti-wolf propaganda strung along to get just these type of responses.

    And what fun would it be if I just got to my point, Josh? :thumb:

    Here in Montana, A guy got a ticket for shooting a Grizzly bear. The bear was attacking his hunting buddy. But the game department said it was still against the law. But in the process of shooting the bear he also killed his buddy.

    The moral here is to just let the bear kill his friend. And let the bear go.

    Jezzus the correctness police are all over this thread. I think she shot the wolf then made up the story about it charging.

    Old Man you got the story all twisted. The guy was hunting black bear. He shot a grizzly, and watched it walk into the brush, waited the appropriate amount of time for a kill shot and when they approached, the bear attacked his buddy, The bear was wounded. he then shot his buddy whilst trying to finish the bear off that he illegally shot. and its also an endangered species, and they were in a grizzly bear recovery area. I dont know much about bears, but If I was a black bear, I wouldnt hang out where there are prlly some grizzleys around

    Again this incedent happened in N. ID and was picked up and confirmed by the local press http://www.nbcmontana.com/news/29401178/detail.html . It was posted here to highlight the fact that we have these critters localy now and should be aware that they could be in the same drainages your fishing so please be aware and use caution.

    Article also states she had a valid wolf tag. She was probably bow hunting, stumbled upon said wolf, shot it, then made up the whole story about being charged. That being said, not sure what this has to do with fishing in Washington.

    Washington does indeed have problem you should be concerned with while fishing. It would be tweekers, not wolves.
