Candice Berner, 32, Killed by Wolf Pack. Wolves Being Hunted
Associated Content ^ | Mar. 12-2010 | Sherry Tomfeld

Posted on 03/12/2010 3:46:32 PM PST by stillafreemind

It's been reported that many wolf tracks were around the body of Candice Berner. At least 2 wolves and as many as 4. Bob Berner, father of Candice, said the troopers told him that there appeared to be a struggle that lasted approx. 150 ft. before Berner went down. There were also signs that she was still alive as the wolf pack dragged her along. The wolves went for her throat, as many predators do, she did not die instantly.

I think life in prison would be more appropriate.

Nature will be nature.

In the land of fang and claw the average unarmed person is prey.

Now someone do a google search and find out how evil Sarah Palin is for allowing hunting of wolves in Alaska.

(that was sarcasm, only in liberal loonyville are wild animals sweet and cute... just like they are on the paintings in their hallway)

But... I thought wolves don’t attack people! That there has never been a documented attack by wolves on people in America!

This is what happens when someone that depends upon the LE or Game Wardens to protect themselves meets the Eco terrorists’ pet projects. I guess the argument that wolves will not attack humans goes out the window, eh?

Article says she was only 4ft. 11 in. tall. I wonder if that computed in the wolves brains that she would be easy to take out.

3 weeks ago I was in the Northwest Russian wilderness, those wolfs don’t mess around. The first night we were at the cabin we kept hearing them rustling up the snow all around. If it wasn’t for our well armed contingent with Saiga 12’s and AK’s it would have been Pipietz!

The next morning we say tracks in 4 ft deep snow as wide as our fattest member. Fired a few shots the next night but they only went away for a bit, the smell of shashlik and smoked fish was just too much for them. I hear they have an even more wild time during the summer with all of the brown bears around. There are plenty of horror stories with wolfs and bears.

Hungry wolves are nasty critters - they will kill and eat whatever is handy, including each other. While moose hunting in southcentral Alaska, we came upon a bloody patch in the snow with wolf tracks and hair all around. Lying there was the foreleg of a full grown wolf - the pack ate the rest. Kind of like being the smallest piranha in the pond.

Exactly. Wild animals being wild animals is no reason to kill them. If you jog in their territory all by yourself, you need to know the risk. I have no particular love for wolves, but if you have a problem living with a species, either eradicate all of them or learn to live with them.

Like the article said, she probably never knew what hit her until it was too late.

They seem to be as persistent as liberals pursuing their Health Care agenda. ;-)

My theory is the wolves were merely scavenging, after she was hunted and killed by a pack of bunny rabbits.

I think we should let 100 wolves go in Central Park, and make it illegal for New Yorkers to harrass them in any way.

Why are they hunting the wolves? They had no comprehension of what they were doing. I thought that's how our legal system works. Certainly here should be a hearing with the wolves represented at taxpayer expense before any final determination.

Yes...wolves being hunted exclusively by the sole arbiters of nature and law—government employees. It will happen again and again.

We have a bear that is roaming around our area, Fish & Game has posted signs.

Here's the definition of environmentalism boilerplate:

[A] retired Fish and Game biologist said the attack was highly unusual. It may be the first documented case of a fatal wolf attack made by healthy, wild wolves in Alaska.

Too bad that they discount untrained accounts of people that actually lived, worked and traveled the land they now think they administer. Not much better in the lower 48 either.

It is plenty of reason to kill them. any wild animal that attacks a human needs to kill swiftly.

I would rather have had the victim kill the before she was eaten. But that didn't happen now it is up the the rest to do the job for her.

Heh. There are plenty of ways to keep predators from bothering livestock or residents without getting in any trouble and making sure that they multiply enough in gaper zones (public areas) to devour the visiting animal worshippers. The lazy retirees/regulators from the coasts will go, too. We're fencing in large parts of the range now. No trespassing.

And they didn’t even read the wolves their Miranda rights . . .

The worse thing is these wolves now have had a taste of human blood. They’ll need to be all hunted down, even moms with cubs if any or they’ll seek out other humans exclusively. That pack has just learned just how vulnerable humans can be, and wolves are smart...they’ll learn how to avoid humans with guns and go after the ones that don’t have guns.

You say that as a joke, but in fact, just now, a website which takes a close and critical view “Palingates”, has a post about ... wolves. And the flaws in Governor Palin’s policies. It must have gone up just before this appalling coincidence of a woman being killed by wolves in Alaska.

My sympathies to Candice Berner’s family.

People should hunt wolves as a method of population control. Attacking and killing a bunch of wolves out on the chain is just stupid.

An Amish family lives by my brother’s hunting property in Northern Minnesota and when the wolf population got out of hand near his farm he hunted the pack down and killed them and then skinned the wolves and tacked the pelts on the door of his barn.
