Posted on 11/21/2013 11:48:46 AM PST by george76
Wildlife lovers clamoring to bring gray wolves to Colorado may want to pay attention to those wooden outhouse-style structures in rural Catron County, New Mexico. Theyre called kid cages, and theyre built to protect children waiting at school bus stopsfrom wolves.
The wolf issue is an example, especially with the kid cages, about how youre putting the interest of wildlife over the interests of human beings, said filmmaker David Spady. Every American should be concerned about seeing kids in cages and wolves out wandering around freely.
Spadys remarks came during a Tuesday screening of his film, Wolves in Government Clothing, a documentary on the impact of the 1998 wolf reintroduction on those living in the rural West.
The film focuses on rural communities struggling to cope with the economic and safety issues that accompanied the wolves, including livestock depredations, reduced elk and moose herds, and fewer hunting opportunities, not to mention chilling close encounters with wolf packs.
The Fish and Wildlife Service is expected to rule on the wolf proposals sometime after public hearings conclude Dec. 3.

no more common sense. we need wolves why????
Same reason we need to import Al Qaeda.
Wolves in Government Clothing.
They’re just like big lovable dogs. I’m sure I’d be happy to let the grandkids go out and play amongst them. NOT! Uninteded consequences? Maybe not. When vast areas are declared “human-free zones”, “wildlife corridors”, “earth islands” and “bio-sphere habitats”, things will be just fine cause the wolves will already be firmly in place.
I don’t have a great deal of sympathy for Catron County welfare ranches.
To bankrupt family farmers and ranchers

Uh, Davie-boy, when was the last time that a non-rabid wolf attacked a human, or even a “film-maker” in the lower 48?
Chances are, it would also be the first - - - .
google wolf cages for kids and you will see a link of “google images” with some photos.
By the way, here's a clue: A wooden outhouse side structure is going to provide a young child minimal protection from wolves.
“google wolf cages for kids and you will see a link of google images with some photos.”
And all those images are of winter snow shelters that have been at bus stops for years, which are being re-labeled as “kid cages” now as a political ploy by anti-wolf people.
Kinda pulls at the old heart strings, doesn't it? /sarc
Kid cages are located at bus stops in rural western New Mexico . The cages are for protection against wolf attacks were installed on orders of Reserve Independent Schools officials .
Theyre designed so children can step up in them and sit down and wait for the bus, Catron County Sheriff Shawn Menges
Liberalism destroys all it touches. It is anti-human.
“You guys, you, we entrusted you to take care of our beloved wildlife, lands and waters, to take care of this land, and you need to be the watchdog so the states dont open it up to an open slaughter for these wolves, said Betty Neuenschwander.”
Waaa Waaa, idiots. Whack them all and make a hat out of them!
The wolves probably wouldn’t last long on the 16th street mall on gang nights.

So we have another one in our midst.
Actually wolves very rarely attack humans, they are so afraid of the human scent I wonder how they were domesticated into dogs in the first place.
As it stands now, there is a huge pushback from the locals to stop this nonsense. We seem to be winning now, but the environazis never give up.
And, yes, if the wolf eventually does get reintroduced into my remote part of the county, I guarantee you I will KILL every wolf on sight I run across.
Then I will shovel.
And then I will shut up.

Wolf introduction is a criminal enterprise based on scientific fraud

That’s disgusting. How about some “wolf rifles” instead?
Dad and I have both blasted our share of coyotes ... wolves endangering human life, lifestock or pets deserve the same treatment.
I truly wish you and your fellow Arizonan’s the best in defeating these nuts. We don’t need wolves in the lower 48 nor are they needed for the ecosystem, did just fine without them for many years.
So many that in fact every wolf now has 3 government employees (armed) tracking its movements and the movements of its only effective predator (humans).
Our forebears eradicated wolves for a reason.
The reason is that any interaction between a wolf and an unarmed human or that human's livestock is a meal for a wolf.
“we need wolves why????”
Too speed along the implementation of UN Agenda 21, the depopulation of vast swaths of the American landscape and herd everyone into manageable cities.
You are a useful idiot for somebody.

220-221, whatever it takes.
Todays wolves are not yesterdays wolves...nevertheless...they’re all killers by nature.
I'm calling B.S. on that.
+1 for at least one State Wildlife agency for taking the bull by the horns:
Wildlife agents finish job of eliminating wolf pack
Fatal Wolf Attack Unnerves Alaska Village
Wouldn’t it be simpler than scratching and biting to have a season on predator and prey alike?-and yes, I am a hunter-one who knows the natural world must have a balance so we can all have enough healthy game for food-that is what hunting is for.
That is why there are extra deer tags on your license when the year has been dry and the deer are in poor condition-more need to be harvested to maintain a healthy population, rather than just a big one, because there are not enough natural predators to take out the unhealthy deer.
Anyone who wants the only wildlife around them to be cute little deer and birdies needs to stay in the city-that is unnatural...
I wouldn’t let my kid wait at a deserted bus stop, and that is because of human predators, not animal ones...
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE:
There has been exactly 1 attack by a wolf on a human in the lower 48 in recent history, and that was in Minnesota, and the wolf was brain damaged.
European Wolves prefer horse meat:
Wolves attack horses in French ski station
“In Wolves In Russia,” Will Graves reports on a long history of wolf attacks on people in Eurasia, especially Russia, Pakistan, India and Kazakhastan, including thousands of fatal ones
Way too many wolves have bred with feral dogs over many years, and lost their fear and avoidance of humans as a result-think guard dogs without a fence or master. It has happened with coyotes, too and is likely the result of dogs set loose and gone feral for years-animals revert to the wild faster than a lot of people realize. In normal circumstances, domestic animals don’t belong out in the wild without fences, and wild animals don’t belong inside of them...
The gangs on 16th Street mall are like wolf packs.
See the Urban game : Polar bear hunting ?
People also were killed by wolves in North America before the 20th century.
My horse and I were attacked by wolves in the Gila Wilderness and the wolves wound up being brain-damaged, thanks to hooves, rifle and pistol.
I grew up reading hundreds of books but the only one that really stuck was Call of the Wild by Jack London. Each summer In recent years I have spent time on the Yukon River which is where Jack London’s fictional book was focused. So, basically, the sound of the wolves is truly, for me and many others, “a call of the wild” and therefore beautiful way out in the woods.
That said, the idea of wolves in populated areas is preposterous both for the wolf and man.
So you were the one. ;)
I was one of the ones.
