Thanks to U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy's ruling (PDF file of preliminary injunction order) that the Endangered Species Act protections must be reinstated for wolves in both Montana and Idaho, be prepared to hear of more reports about large packs of wolves roaming the countryside in neighboring states like the one that was filmed in Oregon. Even though neither state, Washington or Oregon, were part of the Fish and Wildlife Service's wolf reintroduction program, they are definitely a recipient of the outcome. It was the late "90"s when the first wolves made it to Oregon, now they are beginning to roam in large packs.... (excerpt)

I like the photo, but wasn’t that proven to be fake?
I have a friend who is with Fish and Wildlife in Oregon. They have been working with a rancher for a couple of years who has done everything they suggested to protect his livestock from wolves. He just lost 30 yearling sheep.
When the wolf reintroduction was proposed, supposedly the ranchers would be reimbursed for their losses, but it was never funded so he’s out of luck - as is every other farmer/rancher in Oregon.
Typical liberal thought process - here’s what we want (wolves are nice creatures and won’t it be nice to have them in the wild again) - bend over.
\ Grow up. Bears and Lions both are hunted and in the states they aren't hunted they are kept in check by people shooting them illegally. As for dogs, they generally don't run wild and most of the killings are by a particular breed or breeds, the owners are responsible and in some cases have been sent to jail for murder. This keeps the amount of dog attacks down to a minimum. However, you answer the question of wolves attacking humans by your own senseless arguments. If Dogs attack people then wolves sure as he** will, and do, attack people.
Coyotes, which are in reality small wolves, attack people every year, they are also hunted, which tends to keep attacks on people to a minimum. Fear of humans does that. By not allowing these wolves to be hunted they have no fear of man and are more likely to start snacking on humans, they certainly have no fear of coming onto ranches and killing off livestock, which my tax dollars have to pay for.
Seems to me you have some more recovering to do. You are another who claims to be smart, but your own statement proves you are ignorant of the facts.
Go back to smoking your pot and singing coom by yah at the campfire with thin injuns lib.
That is absolutely correct. The European wolves were very aggressive toward humans and were killed off as a result.
I see folks citing articles that are composed of conjecture (and there are refutations to most), but I have yet to see a link that substantiates a documented case of a wolf killing a human in North America in the last 100 years.
And, even if there were 10, I would ask this audience: Compare that to 12 deaths annually in the US due to Domestic Dog Bites!
Should we kill all domestic dogs?
You earned that award! Just grand
“This beautiful photo of a wolf jumping over a fence elicited the usual rabble of “fake!” claims when it won a prestigious wildlife photography competition. The photographer denies the claims, but he’s just been stripped of the award.
Unusually, nobody doubts that it’s a real wolf (as opposed to some sort of photo manipulation)the controversy is that the wolf pictured may in fact be a tame wolf by the name of Ossian. The evidence: It’s an exceedingly rare species, hardly ever seen in the wild; a wild wolf would be more likely to squeeze through the fence than leap over it; and, um, it looks like Ossian (I guess there are people out there who can tell wolves apart; I can barely tell that it’s not my neighbor’s dog). Jesus termed it “the ultimate FAKE internet whining.”
The judges for the Natural History Museum have decided after awarding this photo the top prize that the wolf pictured is in fact a tame specimen, which breaks the rules of the competition.”
If you read the caption to this photo, it says Veolia Environment Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2009.
Jose Luis Rodriguez was forced to admit the wolf in the photo is a tamed wolf he rented out for the day to take the photoshoot. The award was rescinded.
Whoops! Wrong Wolf pack!
I don’t know whether that remark should be classified as wacky or just plain idiotic...
Evidence provided by Rodriguez's accusers point to a black scar under the wolves' right eye
That aint gonna put me to sleep!
Bears usually avoid human beings but there is an occasional attack due to cubs being around or the bear is starving. Where do you think the term, “bear market” originated?
Mountain lions are usually very solitary and attacks on humans are rare. Between 1890 and 2004 about 20 people have died from being attacked.
Why should we add more predators to those that are already out there? You want to see more human beings die?
As a New Englander ignorant about these matters, is there anything practically that will prevent some public spirited hunters from plugging these things and moving on if the packs become a problem?
Under that logic, should we kill all domestic dogs? Domestic dogs kill 12 people per year on average.
What happened to common sense?
If a wolf is causing a problems, coming onto private property getting near kids and or killing stock on private property, kill the damn wolf...Can the government and it's over paid agents not see this as justified?
What is the GD problem?
The way I see it, if the wolves are not bothering anyone, leave them the hell alone, but if someone shoots one on their private property for good reason...So what?
Lemme guess, this is against federal law?
...you answered my question
