URGENT! Montana Wolf Hunt Comments Due on 24th
Wolves - Topic page at Spokesman.com
The grey wolf has made a comeback across the Northern Rockies, thanks to federal protection, and Idaho and Montana now allow wolf hunting and trapping to keep the population in check. Summary Few wildlife conservation efforts have been as controversial as that of the grey wolf in the Northern Rockies. Federal efforts to protect the wolf have clashed with state efforts to control wolf populations and protect livestock and game from predation by wolf packs. Idaho and Montana have been given federal authority to manage wolf numbers using public hunts. Federal officials require Idaho to maintain a population of at least 150 wolves and 10 breeding pairs.
Even they know that wolves are NOT the culprits… http://www.spokesman.com/blogs/hbo/2013/jun/21/study-wolves-dont-cause-elk-drop/ June 21, 2013 1:22 p.m. Any hunter who’s spent time in wolf country can attest to the predators’ influence. We see wolf tracks, find old kills, and often times we spot fewer game animals. But exactly how wolves affect big-game populations is still greatly unknown.
Study: Wolves Don’t Cause Elk Drop
click to enlarge Jacob Jones Robert Roman has likely killed more wolves than any other hunter or trapper in Idaho. Robert Roman cradles a pale wolf skull in his upturned palm. He does not hate wolves, he says, gripping the hollow eye sockets and turning the bleached bone in his hands. Perhaps God just built the wolf too well. Working along the ragged jawline, Roman runs his thumb against the curved point of each tooth, edged almost like knives.

Listen Isle Royale wolf intervention at center of debate The wolf population on Isle Royale is down to eight individuals and for the first time in 50 years of intense study there is no evidence of reproduction over the winter. The National Park Service faces a thorny set of choices to either intervene or let nature take its course. A panel of experts Thursday evening will debate the options and explore possible consequences. • Today's Question: Should humans intervene?

Now Rancher McIrvin Wants Washington Wolves Poisoned
>McIrvin says killing the wolves is the only solution. He believes the calf carcass should have been laced with poison to get the “culprits.” “Until somebody gets serious about opening season on these wolves, I don’t know that there is any answer,” he said. Just as he did last year, McIrvin plans to continue to refuse compensation from the state.
Wolf that chased motorcyle on B.C. highway likely ‘accustomed’ to being fed by humans: park officials
The mysterious grey wolf that gained international attention for chasing a Banff, Alta., motorcyclist along a B.C. highway seems to have appeared at least two other times, leading wolf-watchers to the grim conclusion the animal’s days are likely numbered. “This is not normal behaviour for a natural wild wolf,” said Shelley Black, co-founder of the Northern Lights Wildlife Wolf Centre, a wolf sanctuary just one hour north of the reported sightings, which occurred in Kootenay National Park. Whether the wolf is crushed by a passing car or winds up in the gun sights of an animal control officer, Ms. Black held out little hope for its long-term survival. On June 8, motorcyclist Tim Bartlett was cruising along Highway 93 near Radium, B.C., when an adult grey wolf darted at him from the trees and pursued him for more than one kilometre. “It probably got to within a couple metres, easy, maybe a metre.

Recently the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) announced it would strip protection under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) for gray wolves in the lower 48 states. As a result management for wolves will now largely be a state agency responsibility. The one exception is the Mexican wolf, a subspecies found in Arizona and New Mexico that will remain listed.

Besides its wealth of husbandry information, Wolf Park has contributed to a large number of research projects.

Ridiculous “Testimony” From Sham “Wolf Advisory” Committee Sets Stage for Mass Slaughter of Wisconsin Wolves
Wisconsin plans to slaughter 275 more wolves this fall. When the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources “Wolf Advisory Committee” met last month it was a foregone conclusion that they would push for an expanded wolf slaughter for this fall. The DNR has stacked this committee with anti-wolf groups and representatives of various anti-wolf government agencies. The only pro-wolf entity on this sham committee is a representative from the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission. The Timber Wolf Alliance pretends to be pro-wolf but in reality are pro-wolf hunt and they have never put up any objections to the reckless “management” the DNR keeps pushing. These are the members of this sham “committee” that set the yearly wolf slaughter numbers:
The lengths USFWS has gone, to justify the delisting of wolves across the lower forty-eight, is truly mind-blowing. Did someone drop a couple hits of LSD and come up with “the fairytale proposal”? “Okay, Frank.

Western Gray Wolf: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
Wolf restoration in the Northern Rocky Mountains (NRM) has been an amazing success thanks to both the resiliency of wolves and the cooperative efforts of Federal, State, and Tribal agencies, conservation groups, and private citizens; including ranchers, sportsmen, and outfitters. The most recent data available (end of 2013) indicate that the NRM wolf population contains at least 1,691 wolves, at least 320 packs, and at least 78 breeding pairs. This population has exceeded its recovery goals since 2002. By every biological measure the NRM wolf population is recovered and remains secure under State management.
