I saw wolf in wood by my house. It was big hary and good! I live in Canon Fall and it was chasing a rabbit. I named wolf smoky

I am not sure but I think Canon Falls might be a little far south for wolf territory. I will find out and check back to make sure I am not leading anyone astray.

Wolves are my absoulute fave animal!!!
In first grade we did a project on an animal of our choice. Three people did wolves, but I was the only girl. Ever since, I've been in love with the majestic creature. My room is full with wolf stuff! A whole shelf dedicated to little wolfie statues. Whenever I go vacationing in Wisconsin (Dells) or around there, I get something wolf related as a souvenier. I've even written poems about wolves. I'm never embarassed when everyone says their favorite animals (cat, dog, parakeet, giraffe,....WOLF!) and mine is the odd one out. (Which one of these things is not like the other?) If my mom wasn't allergic to dogs, I'd definately get a husky (It'll be close enough, until I can work w/ wolves up close some day!).

wolves are important to the story of europeans in the midwest. as the land was farmed and towns grew they were killed off. most people born after 1930 never saw one.

I would say not likely, but not impossible that a wolf was spotted in southern MN. It was likely a coyote, which are becoming very common in MN. Wherever they are they deserve our respect and understanding. The risks to people really are small and even smaller to livestock especially if the farm animals are properly managed.

Wolves don't eat people.
Wolves are carniverous, but if your children are playing in their yard in complete daylight, no sane wolf is going to come out of his hiding place to attack them. Wolves eat hares, mice, deer, and even bigger things if they're in a pack, like elk or even moose. No matter how big a moose is, though, it is still lower on the food chain than a wolf. Humans are at the top of the food chain, always. Wolves don't look upon humans as creatures to kill and eat, but predators to run away from and fear. You have no reason to fret about your little children and neighbors. Relax.

Thats would be correct, wolves are generally shy towards humans. On the other hand, we're starting to hunt them again, which is ok 'cause they're getting smarter and will eventually outsmart us all.

that is not true in the least wolves are no longer exctinct and to maintain a healthy population they must be harvested and regulated if they are to thrive. if you want to protect something give it value by hunting it.

Kicker Cutleg, Wolf reincarnate says:

That's right, I know for a fact that a wolf will only attack if starved and there is nothing left to eat, or if it's disabled and what it's attacking is the only thing available, and even then, if it's in a pack and just on it's own for the time being, like hunting for the cubs if there are any, it won't endanger the pack by attacking humans. Besides, they are not a stupid animal, and know not to attack anything stronger than the pack.

All though your right, normally wolves do not attack humans, some still might. The ones that are in a pack will never go after a human unless theyve been starving for days because prey is prey, no matter what it is if a wolf is hungry it will attack. Lone wolves will attack humans probably more then a pack would because with a pack they can easily go after an elk or deer or some big animal like that cause they have help, but a lone wolf does not, and if it sees a small helpless child it will attack

I saw a wolf two days ago at the Minnesota Zoo. I was glad that it looked happy; sometimes they look so bored and sad. It is great that we can have them in zoos and still have them be happy because it is essential to educate people about wolves. The International Wolf Center in Ely, MN, does an especially good job at educating and helping wolves. Wolves are also becoming more plentiful at Yellowstone, an amazing natural wonder. Because my family farms and has pets, I know what it is like to be on the opposing side of wolves (we don't have any in our area, but their "cousins", the coyotes present a clear enough picture, having just recently lost a few cats to them.) However, it is important to be on the side of the wolves and help them as much as we can so that not only we can enjoy their beauty, grace, and the wisdom they bring, but so can future generations!

I have a pet wolf, they arnt really "pets" more of a companion with mutual tolerance. Its legit, he has a 2.5 acre pen in deep woods, with a 8' chainlink walls and a double gate. I didnt pull him from the wild, he was born in captivity so i dont feel bad about not lettimg him go. He eats a high fat science diet dry mixed with 5lbs of raw/ semi-raw meat per day. Wolves are great "pets" and arnt agressive if you raise them correctly. i Hate all this BS around "ohh pet wolf let him go in the wild you a-hole" sheesh. True you cant have them around children or cuddle with them, but then again they arnt dogs. They're wolves. You can pet him and play w/ them as long as you know their body lauange and what to look for. I will admit when people keep a wolf chained to the tree. They are a demanding pet that takes alot of time work and money, but the rewards of being with such a beautiful animal are completely worth it.

Wolves are beautiful, all beautiful things in nature seem to be the most dangerous though...I like the idea of wolves being wolves relatives...it's nice. Never read wolf brother, I'll try it though. Wolves should never be hunted. Hunting for food is okay, but killing wolves (and other animals) for their fur is inexcusable, we've put so many animals through so many hardships just for fasion, really does it mean that much. We need to get a handle on the situation while there's still wolves on the planet. We will not get a second chance. I've only seen a couple wolves, once in a wildlife park...they're elegant.

My family also saw a wolf at Yellowstone in one of the prairies by the road. We watched it pounce on something, but we were not sure what it was because of the grass. A rabbit or rodent possibly? Either way, it was cool to see how it patiently crept up to it, and then pounced!

This is not my story about wolves but I was reading the Aftenposten (a Norwegian newspaper) and encountered a rather unusual wolf story. Two ladies were hiking down a mountain carrying freshly caught fish when they were “circled” by two wolves. The wolves got so close, the ladies could practically touch them! Frozen stiff, the ladies didn’t know what to do. However, the wolves decided to retreat the way they approached. The ladies were left unharmed. Why do you think the wolves retreated?

Elisabeth says:

There are a few defining characteristics differentiating wolves from coyotes. Physically wolves are twice the size of coyotes and exhibit larger ears and longer noses. Wolves howl in long tones while coyotes tend to vocalize with yups and yaps. The Michigan DNR had an excellent pictorial representation of the differences between wolves (Michigan Gray Wolf) and coyotes. To conclude, sheer size seems to be the determining factor between wolves and coyotes.

Wolves DO need to eat you know.

What about humans? Out of all the creatures on this planet, I'd say the human is the absolute worst. If you're going to hate a creature because it killed something, hate humans. Humans not only kill animals, they've caused to endanger and sometimes lead some to extinction.

Wolves are beautiful creatures that have been pushed around TOO many times by people that HONESTLY BELIEVE a wolf will eat their children. LUDICROUS! Wolves do not attack humans, in fact, there haven't been any reported cases of a wolf attacking a human.

So get over it.

That's absolutely wrong. There are plenty of reported cases of wolves attacking humans. When I was doing research for an historical article, I had to read through numerous early Duluth, Minnesota newspapers. During the years 1900 - 1912, I came across dozens of reports of wolf-human confrontations. During one period in 1910 there seemed to be a wolf attack story just about every week.

The most startling newspaper report I came across was a 1911 story from Tashkent in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia which claimed wolves killed all but two in a wedding party of 120 people, including the bride and groom! They were all sledding from one town to another, when the pack of ravenous wolves attacked. I suppose it could all be a folktale or just plain bunk, but here's a link to a copy of the original article which I saved. You can decide for yourself.

That's where you yourself may very well be absolutely wrong. After all, it is highly uncharacteristic that a pack of wolves would randomly strike out and kill (unless under the influence of rabies) one hundred and twenty people - besides, I highly doubt that even a larger pack would be capable of such mass slaughter.
True, just because it was put into print over ninety years prior does not necessarily make it fiction, but centuries worth of fact does.
The only case that is possibly likely of such human killing at the hands of a wolf would be the Beast of Gevaudan, which supposedly had one hundred victims between the years of 1764 to 1767.
Besides, as mentioned before by another commentor, humans are really the most vile and cruel beings on this earth, if take ninto consideration. After all, something tells me wolves are incapable of many of the atrocities we humans do to one another, from genocide, to corruption.

If you're anything like me, you've stopped thinking about wolf attacks on humans, and you're wondering what the Beast of Gevaudan is.

Crytozoology buffs, take note: the Beast of Gevaudan is

"...described as being a wolflike creature the size of a cow, with a wide chest, a long sinuous tail with a lion-like tuft of hair at the end, and a greyhound-like head with small straight ears and large protruding fangs. The creature was said to have red fur, and a peculiar black stripe that ran down the length of its back."

Beast of Gevaudan: The text above the drawing translates to, "Drawing of the monster that afflicts Gevaudan. This beast is the size of a young bull. It prefers to attack women and children. It drinks their blood, cuts their head off, and carries them away. 2700 francs are promised to he who kills this animal." (Image from Wikimedia Commons)

Centuries worth of fact have absolutely no bearing on what may or may not have happened to that wedding party. However, our knowledge of wolves behavior does tell us that this would be extremely unusual behavior, and a skeptic would be well justified in seeking additional proof.

What do wolves eat?

posted on Fri, 08/11/2006 - 11:25am
Elisabeth's picture
Elisabeth says:

Wolves have multiple sources for food. Primarily carnivores, wolves eat a lot of meat paired with other foods. Wolves have a large diet ranging from big game (moose, elk, deer) to berries, insects and worms. Depending on the season, wolves may also eat mice, birds and fish.

Wolves tend to consume their food fast, avoiding predator confrontation. Wolves typically eat every 5-6 hours when food is available and are able to fast up to two weeks.

How do we know what a wolf eats? Researchers learn about a wolf’s diet by studying their waste products otherwise known as their ‘scat.’

I think wolves are a beautiful combination of radness and beauty. Combining our ideas and ideals, the pack and the loner, it became for too long more literary motif than animal, but I for one, even as one of those romantically inclined to wolves, think that the violent, cruel and natural ways of the wolf, as well as the benign side of that same coin, the tender mothering (as long as she doesn't eat the little ones...then we're back to violent and cruel), the collaborations, complicated manueverings of several animals somehow communications detailed plans for the hunting about to commence, make the wolf one of the truly complicated, interesting and beautiful beasts that roam our homeland.

I HOLLARED AT THE WOLF,HE LOOKED AT ME AND AMBLED DOWN THE SIDEWALK IN FRONT OF THE BUNKHOUSE TO THE DRIVEWAY. THE FOLLOWING MORNING WHEN I WAS GOING INTO TOWN, THE WOLF WAS DEAD ON MY ROAD. BEING DARK AT THE TIME, I DID NOT STOP, HOWEVER WHEN I RETURNED I WENT OUT AND EXAMINED THE WOLF AND FOUND PUNCTURE WOUNDS IN HIS NECK. I CALLED THE GAME WARDEN AND TOLD HIM ABOUT THE WOLF AND THE WOUNDS WHICH I WITNESSED. I TOLD HIM IT LOOKED LIKE HE HAD BEEN SHOT. THE WARDEN STATED TO ME THAT HEWOULD COME AND PICK UP THE CARCASS WHICH HE DID. THE FOLLOWING WEEKEND I WAS TOLD BY THE GAME WARDEN THAT THE WOLF WAS NOT SHOT BUT HAD BEEN IN A FIGHT WITH ANOTHER WOLF AND THE PUNCTURE WOUNDS WERE ACTUALLY TEETH MARKS. THE WOLF WEIGHED ABOUT 90 POUNDS STOOD 3 1/2 FEET. I WOULD HATE TO RUN INTO THE WOLF THAT WON THE FIGHT. THE END.

A couple weeks ago I was camping up at Itasca State Park. I didn't actually get to see any wolves, but heard a great program led by a park ranger about wolves. The most interesting thing she shared was that the average northern Minnesota wolf will eat 14 to 18 deer each year. And that's not a bad thing (unless you're one of the deer being eaten, I guess). We have a surplus of deer right now so the wolves help keep those numbers under control.

One time I saw a wolf attacking a woman. Being a very heroic chap I jumped between the damsel and her viscious furry attacker. I was holding only a piece of lanyard, since I had recently returned from camp. Anyway, I used the arts and crafts supply in my bare hand to beat the wolf-killer away from us, careful not mame or harm the wolf permantly. I ended up marrying the lady that I saved. The wolf, now tame, became our faithful pet to this day. He now brings me my paper and slippers in the morning. The three of us get along very well.

Wolves are okay, but they number in the 40 thousands in Canada/Alaska, and there are animals that definitely need more help than the wolf that arent getting it in favor of the wolf. Hyena, African Wild Dog [this one especially, almost extinct, even more gentle and family oriented than the wolf], lions, tigers and snow leopards, just to name a few. The wolf has been romanticized to make it seem more appealing for a while, but MANY animals display the same social nature as the wolf, and they should not be ignored.

While it is true that there are numerous animals who need looking after almost as much as the wolf, the wolf is (in the United States) in much more danger. In Oregon they tried to pass a bill making it so that wolves and wolf-hybrids can be killed anytime of the year. That not only means they can kill a random wolf, but someone's pet. Many people in rural areas here and believe the hype about wolves being serious killers. The fact of the matter is that we build our houses and farms on wolf territory, they don't understand that killing cattle is a bad thing, they're just doing what they think is necessary to survive. People have turned this into something bigger than what it is, and pushed a bill through allowing you to kill a wolf for doing this. While they are carnivorous they only kill what they need to eat to survive. That is a fact. There are more dog attacks in the US than there ever have been by wolves. Since there are so few wolf attacks yet people think they need to be exerminated, why don't we cut down all of the palm trees in Hawaii, they kill more people than wolves and sharks combined.
And to the person who said earlier that a pack of wolves kill all except two people out of one hundred and twenty, I say don't believe everything you read. You seriously cannot believe that eight wolves will bring down one hundred and twenty people. Grow up.
Wolves are beautiful creatures who deserve to be protected and cared for. And to a person who said they just look like a regular dog, you are very mistaken. If you look closely at a wolf you can really see their beauty. Their coloring I have yet to see a regular dog have, and never have I seen a dog with such beautiful piercing eyes.
When I was a child a lady came to my mother and I with wolf-hybrid puppies (and by wolf-hybrid I mean they were about 95% wolf, they had a great great grandmother who was a quarter husky) explaining that she had to get rid of them because, sadly, her new husband didn't want them. My mother was a little nervous at first, but I pleaded. Giving in she allowed me to name her, Dakota. Dakota never once attacked anyone. She was one of the most well-behaived animals I have ever had (and with my family that's really something). When I was little I remember trying to cross a busy road after a ball I was playing with she somehow knew it was not allowed for me to cross the road and held onto the back of my shirt. I began yelling at her, and my mom came running not knowing what to expect. The only reason I was yelling was because I wanted my damn ball. Dakota could have saved my life.
Wolves are not terrible creatures, they're not serial killers, they aren't an ordinary dog, and if you ever get the chance to own a hybrid and are resposible enough take it. You never know how they could save your life.

Here in Idaho we used to have a small but consistent population of gray timber wolves. They mostly kept to themselves and lived in Idaho's primitive area.

Then the environmentalists decided that it was necessary to "re-introduce the wolf to this area", but what they brought in were brown and white Canadian prairie wolves instead of those like our resident gray timber wolves.

Now these non-native wolves have interbred with our original gray timber wolves to the point that there are no more pure gray timber wolves left. Due to this action of the so-called environmentalists, the gray timber wolf does not exist any longer in Idaho. All we have left is these cross-breeds that are not very much like our original timber wolf. This should be a lesson for environmentalists who push through actions without thinking through the possible result.

These new cross-breed wolves do not stay in the high mountains as the gray timber wolf did. They tend to live closer to ranches and people, where they have become a serious problem killing and eating ranchers sheep, calves, dogs, and cats. While they probably do not kill that many elk or deer, they keep these animals moving and running to the point that they are not allowed to eat enough grass and browse in the fall and winter and thus many of these underfed animals die from the cold weather. When they die the wolves, bears, and coyotes feed on their carcasses. While it may sound impressive to think that wolves regularly kill their own meat, they are more often opportunistic feeders who will eat from dead carcases if the opportunity arises.

It is sad that the environmentalists saw fit to doom our beautiful gray timber wolves to extinction by bringing in a non-native species to interbreed with them.

You really shouldn't.

Some breeders sell wolves or hybrid wolves as pets, but getting one without fully understanding what you're getting into, because you "love wolves," isn't smart, safe, or, in some places, legal.

Wolves remind us of dogs, but they're NOT dogs. They're wild animals--it's not fair to them to keep them as pets. And they're not domesticated: you may have problems with everything from housebreaking to aggression.

Enjoy wolves from a safe distance, and keep them wild.

That story of the Wolves attacking from town to town and killing all but two in a wedding is just an excuse to kill wolves. People needed a reason to kill'em, so they made that and created a vision of "threat". Wolves would NEVER go in packs to attack towns, they live in the wild, they're shy and they won't attack a human, unless threatened, of course.

"Wolves are just killers with a thirst for blood!" LIE. Wolves live in packs, they've their rules, they're VERY loyal and protect their pups with their lives (as any other non-human animal would do). They communicate with the other members of the pack with their howls. There're long, short, loud and many other howls, each one meaning a different thing. They fight ONLY when necessary, actually, they try to avoid most of fights. Fights take place only when: a) They're hungry. b) They need a leader or replace the current one.
Another thing to keep in mind: Wolves do not eat the whole prey, which leaves some food for the scavengers (they were starving and had to wait for the cold weather of winter and expect their "preys" to die. With this Warmth that affects us today, caused by humans, winters are less cold and dead animals are not that many to serve as food).
They also play with the other pack members just for fun.

All in all, wolves are noble creatures of wisdom, and you, humans, should learn from us (Yes, I'm a Wolf).

Nuhuinenna - If you actually read the newspaper story you'd realize that the wolves didn't attack anyone IN the towns but rather in the wilderness BETWEEN the towns. Also, the wolves were said to be extremely ravenous. It may have been a very bleak winter. Hungry animals - and even humans- behave very differently when extreme hunger is driving them.

That's because someone keeps that wolf as a pet, and probably made it act savage because they thought it was cool. And if the wolf was tied, it wouldn't feel like it had any way to escape. The sinfulness of man has an affect on the animals he keeps, especially the wild ones. A wild wolf would never kill a boy just because he wandered into the woods.

There are photos on the internet of people who went out and hunted wolves. They stand there holding the wolf as if it were a deer... I find that sad and annoying. You can't eat wolves, as far as I know. Even if you skin it and use it for a blanket, I would think that it would smell and look nasty. (You can't exactly wash a wolf skin) Or even the famous use-the-pelt-for-a-rug thing. How could you even stand on that? It is disgraceful and would probably get full of fleas.

I love animals. I tried to keep my post purely factual and not emotional, but I am sorry - I can understand hunting and eating a deer (to some extent), but why would you hunt a wolf aside from to keep populations down?

I feel much the same way about wolves. Along with ravens and and tigers, I think wolves are probably the most magical of animals. They are strong, and noble, and generous, and I don't think we should stand in the way of any of the gifts they choose to give us - so if they want to feed us by letting us shoot them and eat them, or if they want to keep our feet warm by letting us shoot them and turn them into rugs, who are we to stop them from doing just that? Dumbledore had a plan with his death, and I think wolves do to.

It's our DUTY to protect and honor these wonderful animals, until such a time when they want us to shoot them for some reason.

THE WOLF

There he was, there he stood,
He gaze met mine in the cool wood,
His coat was a thick hazel grey,
His stood tall and proud, blocking my way,
The snowy sky above mirrored the snowy ground,
In the quiet morning there was not a sound,
I blinked and dropped my glance at last,
And in that second the moment of challenge past,
For I heard his paws crunch on frost,
He knew I was just a traveller, lost,
I heard him go but then he turned back,
As I looked, behind him came his young pack,
And he raised his head and cried to me,
The howl carried far over the mountains, wild and free,
With a last glimpse back he trotted away,
The youngsters followed and I carried on my way.

Hunting is wrong. How would you like it if you were in your house and a giraffe bursts in and shoots you and makes you into a rug? HUH?!? Wolves deserve the best treatment. Just like dogs or even better. Plus they are helpful. They hunt the deer and rabbits that make out back yards into litter boxes and eat our gardens. So if you think wolves are bad or huntin g them or any animalis good then you are evil in my mind!!!

I agree with Q. hunting IS wrong. for all animals. and its true that they are a part in the food chain - they help keep the deer and rabbit population down so that they eat all the grass, starve themselves and all other creatures who eat the grass, and kill all the insects and small creatures e.g. rodents that live in the grass.
and i am also the same as Q in the sense that i too think that hunting wolves and any other animal is very CRUEL and EVILLLLLLLLLL

I had an encounter with a pair of gray wolves on my porch here in Ketchikan, Alaska last night...and I live inside the city (but right below a wilderness mountain). My dog started woke me, barking and growling at the window, I have a chicken house on my porch and I looked and saw a head and pointy ears between the window and the chicken house. I figured it must be a dog after the chickens so I went out to run it off only to have two very healthy looking wolves run around the house and face me, the closest being a mere 5 feet away! I yelled and was ignored, they just kept staring and finally grabbed up some rocks I had sitting there and lobbed them at the closest, at which point the trotted off while watching me over their shoulders. I checked with animal control and these two have been reported attacking and killing some small dogs in the area lately. The eerie part of the entire encounter was the total silence of these animals.

I'm from just north of Toronto so I don't see many wolves. Whenever I travel north with my dad, though, I'll usually encounter one in the wild. I have to say it's an overall breathtaking experiance to be within a proximity of a wolf. Especially enthralling is the sight of a dark coloured wolf in the middle of winter when all that can be seen is white on the horizon and on land. The beauty and majesty of the wolf can only truly be experianced fully by seeing one in reality, in it's own habitat. I don't entirly recomend going out looking for wolves, as the experiance is enhanced when it's a chance encounter (though it really is your choice to do so or not, so you dont have to listen to me at all XD). Being partly Cree I find wolves to be one of the most religiously entwined animals on earth. If your really a commited wolf fanatic, I would suggest picking up a copy of the novel "Julie of the Wolves" by Jean Craighead George. It's a compelling, heart warming tale of an Inuit girl who is trying to preserve Eskimo tradition, and escapes a reserve to trek the Alaskan wilderness. There she is accepted by a wolf pack usind old Inuit techniques to seem like a wolf. It's a really amazing story, very factual, and I recomend grabing a copy.

I love wolves and would never hunt one.although, granted, I have never seen one in person (They aren't at the St. Louis zoo) I would be ecstatic if I did. They are probably the most beautiful and graceful creatures in my eyes. (My homepage is my own wolf rpg)

Oh, and yeah, I HATE WOLF HUNTERS!!! wolves kill small pets because they do not know the difference between Pet and prey, and need to eat. I have also picked up this fact: In recorded history, a wolf has never killed a single person. wolves are amazing, and absolutely breathtakeing-even on internet pictures. yep, I'm that person who hasn't seen a wolf yet. the wolf rpg person.

I think that the story of the three bears should be changed to the three wolfs, and goldielocks should be changed to goldeifox. In a new story of course.

I completly agree. Goldielocks and the three bears gets kind of boring. Maybe this new virsion can be a chapter book for grownups. Thanks and I'm sorry this is not about wolves.

Have you seen a wolf before?

WOLVES ARE BEGINNING TO COME INTO TEXAS FROM MEXICO, I JUST FOUND SCAT IN MY YARD,, (I LIVE IN THE COUNTRY IN WEST TEXAS ) THE SMALLEST PIECE WAS 1.25 IN THE LARGEST WAS OVER 2 INCHES IN DIAMETER. COYOTE SCAT IS SMALLER. THIS HAD LOTS OF GRAIN, PROBABLY FROM THE CROPS OF MANY BIRDS AS IT IS HARVEST SEASON FOR GRAIN. WE HAVE HUGH PACKS OF COYOTES, A FEW WINTERS AGO WE HAD A PACK OF AROUN 50, WE SAW THEM SEVERAL TIMES IN THE COLDEST PART OF WINTER. COYOTES ARE SMALLER THAN WOLVES. COYOTES LOOK SKINNY KIND OF LIKE A STRIPPED DOWN RUNNER. THEY RANGE IN COLOR FROM WHITE TO GRAY TO BLUE TO PINK, THIS HAS TO DO WITH THE GENETICS BUT ALSO THE KIND OF DIRT THEY TAKE A DUST BATH IN AND THE LIGHT THEY ARE SEEN IN. I HAVE SEEN COYOTES WITH RABIES TRY TO ATTACK ANYTHING THAT MOVED. A WOLF PACK THAT HAS RABIES WOULD PROBABLY DO THE SAME. WOLVES AND COYOTES HELP CONTROL THE RABBIT POPULATION AND OTHER ANIMALS THAT EAT OUR FOOD CROPS. TO HAVE THEM AROUND MEANS THAT THE ECOSYSTEM AROUND YOU IS PROBABLY IN FAIR SHAPE. I LIKE TO HAVE THE RABBITS GONE, BUT BOTH THESE ANIMALS AS WELL AS DOGS KILL CHICKENS AND YOUNG FARM ANIMALS SUCH AS CALVES AND COLTS, ALSO SHEEP AND GOATS. JUST LIKE ALMOST EVERYTHING ELSE IN THIS WORLD, THERE ARE GOOD POINTS AND BAD POINTS AND WE SHOULD ALL LEARN TO CO EXIST.

I ran into a pack of wolves last night about an hour after dark. Right here in town, close to Grand Rapids, along the river. I was going to the Grand River to fish. I was extremely surprised as I never saw a wolf and I've been out in the woods in some pretty remote places. I didn't feel safe at all, but nothing happened, they just watched me as I slowly backed away. I want to tell you that I did not like it. And all you weirdos that think wolves are so neat wouldn't think so either if you found your self surrounded in the darkness by wild glowing white eyes, silently floating tween the sticks on top of pitch black shadows of death. I hope the DNR will come to their senses and stop bringing them here, and start getting rid of them somehow, but I guess most of you idiots think having wolves running around the city is a good thing. Go hug a tree, you hippies, and maybe a wolf will come take a bite out of YOU, then you won't think it is so cute.

As sprawl and human encounters continues to encroach upon denning sights, has their been a decrease in fecundity for established packs in our northern boundaries? Have the data changed significantly with the DNR recording record number of deer populations and decrease in juvenile mortality among grey's?

I used to have wolf hybreds. They were magnifecent but even so our 20 acre land was not enough They were always wary and enterjetic. One of our male wolves was named River He was my favorite because my mother ? if he had any husky in him he might have been pure bred wolf!!! And one day I was sitting in my sandbox outside and River came up to me and licked my face!!! My mom was just standing there shoked he had never licked anyone else in the whole world before! but trajedy struck that made my mom vough to never ever ever have wolves again River and his son anook Were playing really rough and Rivers bottom jaw got hooked un Anooks collar and since wolves do not like to be caught he strugled feaircly and broke his bottom jaw my mom had to put River down because he could not eat and she also put Anook down becaue he could not survive without his father and was to spireted and she could not handle him with our 25 other dogs!!!! River still lives in my heart even though he is gone I will see him in the rainbow bridge when it is my turn to say goodbye!!!

Back in 2005, I went to a Zoo with my family&friends for my sister's party. I know it was 3 years ago, but yeah. Anyway, we took a long time looking at the Monkey cage, than we went over to the Tiger&Lion cage. We looked at the Lions&Tigers for a while and soon after, I left, because I wanted to see what other animals were there. (I don't go to the Zoo very much).
I came across the Arctic Wolf cage and I got EXTREMELY excited, because I've NEVER seen a wolf up close before. When I first got to the cage, I couldn't see any wolves, anywhere. I urged my family&friends to come over, because they were walking towards me. When I looked back into the cage, an Arctic Wolf walked RIGHT UP TO ME! That got me even more excited.
I dunno how it happened really, but we started to race each other! ! We raced each other for a LONG time and whenever I'd take a break and lay down in the grass, the wolf would pace up and down the front of its cage, and look over at me! There was another wolf in the cage too, and I think he wanted to play with us, but he had arthuritus. My friend tried to race with the wolf too, but she didn't run very far with her, because the wolf paused halfway and just looked back at me!
When we all went to the other side of the wolf cage to check out the Panther cage, my friend told me to look down, (because we were on top of a bridge), and the same wolf was looking right at me! She paced around in front of her cage again and would look up at me every now and again, too. It was so cool! When I went back the next summer to see her, she remembered who I was right away! But that time when I took a break and would lay down, and she did the same thing as before, an old couple who was watching us told me that that is something a wolf does whenever they think a family member is hurt and are worried about them. Ever since summer 2005, wolves have been my favorite animal and they still are!

Back in 2002, while visiting my brother in a suburb some 15 minutes (with the metro) outside of Stockholm, Sweden's capital city, I encountered a wolf while resting from a jogging session at 12:30 midnight. It was by a lake surrounded by dense woods. The wolf approached me unti he/she was standing only a few feet away from me. Although it seemed more curious than imposing a threat, I was really scared and could almost hear my heart beating! The wolf was stearing me in the eyes, and it was those eyes that really scared me. At first, out of fear, I tried to scare it by making noises and gestures, but it just lowered its head and kept stearing at me. Then I decided that my only good alternative would be to slowly turn around and just walk away, which I did. After having walked about 20 feet or so - all along fearful that the wolf would attack me from behind, I turned around to see if he/she was stalking me, but the wolf was gone!

We think that wolves are very interesting animals. We think that they are very unique also. They are very good hunters, and when it comes to mating it can get pretty rough... Wolves are very smart when they hunt in packs. Wolves have very beautiful coats.

The wolf recovery plan and now wolf management plan for the Great Lakes Region has been very succesful. Wolves are now common in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan. It is really cool to see wolves and wolf sign (scat & tracks). The wolf howl is an amazing experience! Alaska, Canada and now the Great Lakes States now has a wolf population that is a renewable resource, much like ducks, grouse and coyotes. Conservation is the wise use of our natural resources. We know that if we use our natural resources wisely, they will always be there for the next generation. With the right management and rules, wolves are a resource that we could and should be able to harvest by trapping or hunting. They have a beautiful and valuable fur.

Did you know that hunters put more dollars, sweat, tears and passion into the conservation of wildlife than any other group of people on the planet? That's right, no other segment of the population has given more money to wildlife conservation than hunters and anglers! That's right hunters and anglers fund wildlife management professionals, habitat projects and the purchase of public lands. Really all people benefit from the conservation work that hunters and anglers provide. Clean water, air, wild lands and open space that benefits the quality of life for all of us.

If you really want to do something special for wildlife, buy a hunting and fishing license (even if you don't plan on going) and join a non-profit conservation organization.

Have a great day and take a kid outdoors!
