    I blame the furries for the entire controversy.

    From this thread I see urban dwellers have different perceptions than people that live in rural areas


    206 ( west side) wolf





    509 ( east side) wolf

    If you guys want to see wolves regularly, come up here as soon as the snow starts to fly.

    That said,

    I am surprised and let down that a sensationalized wolf thread draws so much message board attention and responses. That makes the apathy from the majority of the masses ignoring the things you can actually do something even more appalling. If the state of your rivers got this sort of attention regularly, the political situation revolving around your rivers and waterways would more than likely change.

    A furry is one of two things, both fucking strange:

    A person fascinated with animal drawings with anthropomorphic features.
    A person who actually believes they are an animal drawing with anthropomorphic features.

    Furries have huge conventions where massive orgies occur with people dressed as or costumed up as animals. No I am not joking. One of the earliest sub-cultures to emerge out of the internet, back before www even. Strange shit.

    I hardly think a discussion about wolves can tell you anything about apathy of the masses but I have seen people make that stretch many times.

    I have seen threads on this board that have changed restaurants menus across the northwest. I have watched as river clean up outing have been suggested, planned and successfully carried out on this board. I have seen where email campaigns have changed political views and provided significant input to instigate rule changes. The list of things accomplished by the members of this board goes on beyond the few things I have listed. Is this the apathy you are referring to?

    Ding ding ding. The original version is appallingly misleading. The ticketed hunter mis-identified the target (and apparently didn't do a great job of shooting it). Not that it's always easy to distinguish between a black and a brown, but easy/not-easy isn't the point: it is the hunter's obligation to do so. Hence the ticket.

    The only reason it gets a lot of attention is because most of us here refuse to take it seriously. Instead of a polarized conversation full of hatemongering, you have a bunch of assholes (myself included) making light of what's obviously a viral propaganda attempt. Most of us kill steelhead, an equally magnificent animal, so it's going to be hard to get fly fisherman riled up from the green perspective (for that matter, these are, essentially, hatchery wolves).

    If you look at how "up in arms" most other boards are over the subject, you'll see retarded freepers wishing death on environmentalists and retarded environmentalists wishing death via wolf on anyone with a gun. All over a picture with zero verifiable facts except that a female bowhunter in idaho shot a wolf. Furry porn is so much more entertaining and actually makes a little more sense.

    ...but if you post a pic of a dead hatchery fish everyone would applaud you. From what little I've read if you skip the sensationlized BS there's a real concern from hunters and ranchers. If you choose to focus on this type of propoganda then that's what you'll get.

    Both sides have valid concerns, but they'll never be heard because of all the hyperbole involved.

    I would agree Flyborg. Facts aren't newsworthy, but given who's in charge of managing the resource and it's impact on fellow sportsman's activities I would expect a better understanding of the issues.
