Sixteen-year-old Noah Graham of Solway is lucky to be alive after being attacked without warning by a wolf while sitting at a campfire with friends last month on Lake Winnibigoshish near the town of Bemidji in far northern Minnesota.
the willingness of the Clinton administration to accede to the demands of DOW and other environmental groups, wolves were reintroduced in Yellowstone National Park in 1994 and quickly spread over a 500-mile radius to all corners of Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. Earlier this month, a pack of wolves stampeded 176 sheep two were bitten and killed; one was half eaten; the others died of asphyxiation.
After a wolf attacked and repeatedly bit a 6-year old boy in April of 2000 near Icy Bay, Alaska, the State of Alaska began a study of 80 wolf-human contacts in Alaska and Canada, which it published in 2002. Since then, the reports continue to pile up. In November of 2008, in an episode called by one expert, the best investigated case to date, a 22-year old honors and scholarship student, Kenton Joel Carnegie, was killed in northern Saskatchewan by a pack of wolves.
In March of 2008, Candice Berner of Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania, a special education teacher in Perryville, Alaska, was killed near Chignik Lake by at least two wolves. In October of 2011, a North Idaho grandmother on a hunting trip for elk was attacked by a 100-pound wolf; she unholstered the .44 Magnum on her hip and shot and killed the animal. In December of 2012, a wolf attacked a trapper riding a snowmobile near Tok, Alaska; Lance Grangaard fought back but sustained a three inch gash on his arm and underwent rabies inoculations. And so on and so on and so on.

There is a reason that the world disseminated wolves.
Whaddaya? some kind of Sheep Dog? /s
Go armed when in large bodied predator habitat, lest you be dis-armed, dis-legged, disemboweled.
When gunpowder speaks, predators obey.
Libs know best; wolves would never harm a human. /s
Idaho's Wolves -
and SHUT UP!
As wolves begin to be hunted again, they will again become more cautious around humans.
Beautiful animals. They are also big, strong, fast, armed, and attack in numbers. I’m always carrying in wolf or bear country.
Lieberals see only the beauty not the mortal danger.

This wolf always carries in two-legger country for essentially the same reasons.
They also “play down” shark attacks since they want ALL sharks protected similar to a Catch & Release policy. They also play down mountain lion attacks and want all snakes protected. NC already protects ALL poisonous snakes and now has the largest number of Copperhead snake bites in the country.
Yeah, way-to-go animal huggers—along with the idiots in government who listens to them and generate laws protecting dangerous animals. Remember, Shoot, Shovel, Shut-Up when encountering any/all dangerous animals, to include free-ranging dogs..
There is a reason wolves were hunted into near extinction.
wonder if they could develop a taste for RATS?
Policy created by a bunch of losers in mom’s basement surrounded by empty pizza boxes and flacid cheetos bags who will never have to face the consequences of the policies they push.
The way to prevent a wolf attack is similar to the way you can prevent a shark attack.
Take someone with you but make sure you are faster.
That's insane! NC must have some certified idiots in their legislature.
My uncle in Texas killed over 50 copperheads when clearing the brush from his half acre lakefront property. It would have been impossible to stay there if he hadn't.
Yeh and those giants in the pics are Canadian timberwolves which get huge. They are not indigenouse to the western states like Idaho and Montana but the crazy environmentalists managed to get them introduced there not re-introduced. Now they are wreaking havoc on the elk and deer popuations as well as livestock and hunting dogs. And of course people look like an easy meal.
