I'm kinda uneasy about wolves. Goggle the wolves killed in Idaho and look at the size of these beasts, they are pretty scary! The wife and I got run out into the water to escape a pack of wild dogs and it was a scary experience, but these dogs were about 40 lbs, not the monsters that are showing up in wolf packs. As soon as they eat a few folks, I think the problem will be resolved.....just hope it isn't me!

Jeez...here we go again.

Let me know when 'they eat a few folks'. These 'monsters' have been round humans for millenia....they may compete for wild game, and eat some free range cattle, but yer safe. Now go change your grampers..ya got a 'pant load'.

I think that the tire tracks conclusively show that the driver deliberately swerved to hit the wolf. Keep an eye out for a car or truck with bits of wolf blood and hair on its left front bumper and report the culprit to the authorities.

Yeah , let's introduce a Canadian wolf to the western states that were never native species to begin with !!! Not trying to start anything , but there is a lot less elk in Idaho where I live and hunt over the last few years ! Anyways that's good news for me !!

Salmo G......

That reminds me of a story when I was in the Russian Far East working on recovery of the Siberian Tiger. One of the American Forest Service employees asked an old codger if it was a good year for tigers.

The old man "grinned and nodded yes.....I got four".

I remember a very smart Forestry professor at Berkeley that said...."managing forests is fairly easy....it is managing people that use those forests that is difficult."
