Photographic Proof That Wolves Do Kill Without Eating Their prey
You didn’t answer my question. Do you want to add more predators to the wild that will result in the deaths of more human beings than what is already occurring?
You slightly overstate the case. On rare occasion, wolves attack humans, esp sick, injured, or old ones. Then again, it is RARE. See http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolf_attacks_on_humans esp compared to other carnivors. I’m with you on this one.
—Alaska State Troopers said yesterday that a woman found dead in Chignik Lake early this week was most likely killed in a wolf attack, and state authorities are on their way there to try to capture or kill the animals.This from ANCHORAGE, Alaska. It is true. Do not want to believe?
By the way, your ignorance forced me to post the whole article because you are the type that will never follow a link if it proves how ignorant you are.
Candice Berner, 32, appeared to have been killed Monday evening during a run along a remote road outside the community on the Alaska Peninsula, according to troopers. An autopsy yesterday determined the cause of death was "multiple injuries due to animal mauling," troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters said in a statement.
Based on interviews with biologists and villagers in Chignik Lake, troopers concluded wolves were the animals most likely responsible, she said.
The state Department of Fish and Game wanted to conduct DNA testing to help study the incident, but troopers are convinced it was a wolf attack, troopers director Col. Audie Holloway said.
"We are as close to 100 percent certain as you can be," Holloway said.
Troopers investigating the scene found many wolf footprints around the body and bloody drag marks in the snow, he said. Berner's body had been partially predated and had teeth marks on the throat, which was severely damaged and was the likely injury that caused her death, Holloway said.
Investigators were able to conclude after the autopsy that the animal injuries caused the death and were not inflicted post-mortem, he said.
"She was bleeding as she was being moved, being drug, and the damage to the throat," Holloway said. "The medical examiner concluded that she wasn't killed by any other method and that the damage to the throat was severe. There were animal bite marks on the throat.
"Wolves, just like big cats, usually attack the wind pipe area and try to control the victim that way."
It appeared the attack was predatory, motivated by wolves wanting something to eat, he said.
Holloway said troopers and Fish and Game biologists were on their way to Chignik Lake yesterday planning to capture or kill the responsible wolves.
They believe at least two or three were involved, he said.
"We'll stay as long as we can to make sure the public feels as safe as we can make them feel living in Alaska," he said.
Berner, a 32-year-old special education teacher based in Perryville, was found dead Monday evening by a group on snowmachiners traveling along a road outside Chignik Lake.
Berner, originally from Slippery Rock, Pa., stood about 4 feet, 11 inches tall and was an athletic person, an avid runner, according to her family. Officials from the Lake and Peninsula School District said Berner left work at the end of the day Monday to go for a run.
The snowmachiners came across the scene of her death a short time later.
In the wake of the death, villagers began hunting for wolves in the area, which they say have been coming increasingly closer to town in search of food.
Wolves like to hunt and they will hunt people without hesitation. The "mystique" around them is pure advertising.
What about the dozen killed every year by domestic dogs?
Should we eliminate that threat?
I never advocated killing all the wolves, although I think bringing them back into the states was a mistake, but they need a season on them in order to keep the packs in check.
Once they kill off all the deer,elk, and moose in the USA, and in some areas they have almost reached that point, they will turn more and more to livestock and then to humans. Whatever is easiest to catch is what they will kill and eat, and that includes humans. The reason there isn't any records of wolves attacking humans in the USA for the last hundred years is because for most of that time wolves were extinct in the US.
As for EU wolves being more aggressive, that is true of the original gray wolves that the USA had but the ones imported from Canada and Alaska are bigger and more aggressive than the original. There will be humans killed as soon as the wild prey goes away.
Mountain lions didn't start attacking humans in numbers until they ran out of range, becoming over populated in areas with wild game and moving into close proximity to man.
Wild predators will hunt and kill anything that is edible and that includes humans.
As for saying that if they only kill 10 or 12 people a year being an acceptable number, I suppose you would think the same if one of those victims was a relative to you or yourself.
The Irony of this is that the first organization of a government structures by Americans in Oregon were the wolf meetings. These were held to organize people to hunt wolves that were destroying livestock. http://www.ohs.org/education/oregonhistory/historical_records/dspDocument.cfm?doc_ID=40889788-92F9-C578-96471494DA12A34C
When the facts are not on your side, you resort to personal attacks...just like the "liberals" you supposedly dislike.
Do you believe wildlife conservation is exclusively a liberal position?
I am no "liberal" in the modern sense and my 100's of posts on the forum prove it.
You though are acting irrational, not unlike most liberals I have met.
Then you sound like a Leftist! That’s great because Leftists love death. They worship it. They do everything they can to make life as painful and insufferable as possible with death and destruction as the highlight. You should be proud to count yourself among the many on the Left who are working hard every day to bring this to America and to keep Third World countries dwelling in it.
This country needs more criminals, thugs, Muslim terrorists, and those wild and furry wolves to bring more death to Americans. The Left can’t import them or release them from our prisons fast enough to do the job most on the Left are unwilling to do. Thank God for the Left who are making it more and more possible for their desire to bring death, destruction, chaos, suffering, burning, torture, and pain to millions not just to America but across the whole globe.
Were the deaths of 200 million during the 20th century at the hands of the Left enough to satisfy their blood lust? Absolutely not. That was just the beginning!
If it’s illegal to protect your expensive property, and you’re not going to be compensated for predation, then you’re left with few options.
Gut shoot them so the bullet will pass through and leave nothing for the fed scum to trace and keep your mouth shut.
Instead of Shoot, Shovel & Shut-up it’s Shoot, Soft tissue, Shut-up.
How does this support your position?
It's well known that wolves kill livestock. They kill lots of livestock.
Dude, take a pill or something.
Otherwise you may present yourself as an idiot.
Then deliver the carcass to the nearest Korean restaurant.
