Ever hear of Shaun Ellis? Strange guy, but his research has shown us that wolves aren't the monster the agriculture, and hunting lobbies try to make them out to be. They're just trying to survive in a world dominated by man.

"First known fatal wolf attack in the U.S. in modern times."

That line says it all doesn't it? One attack and people like you feed off it. Dogs kill 18-20 people annually, are you going to start shooting every dog you see? This is whats referred to as fear mongering, and demonizing an animal for an underlying cause. It's simple, hunters want wolves gone because they're competition for the animals they like to hunt, e.g. elk. Ranchers want them gone because a couple head of livestock are picked off every once in a while, and they lose a few pennies. These people only make up a tiny percentage of the American population, but you sure know how to whine in order to get your way, don't you?

I never said the wolf was a monster. Yes I am familiar with the research of Shaun Ellis, it's a bit unscientific. I have nothing but respect for the wolf and would see them do well. On the other hand I believe that not recognizing that they are alpha predators of the highest order and will take humans (and domestic animals) as prey is a big mistake. The lie that wolves are friendly little puppies is just as dangerous as the lie that they are evil, ravenous killers.

It should have read "First fatal wolf attack in the US since we killed 90% of them, reintroduced them, and lost control of that reintroduction". If the wolf is not contained in the wilderness areas set aside for them......they are doomed. The massacre will begin all over again. If you can't see that you're as blind as Ray Charles.

BTW, you are aware that all dogs have one common ancestor, aren't you? They are nothing more than domesticated wolves.....mans best friend. When dogs go feral they revert to their natural way and live like wolves. Which means that they will take humans and domesticated animals as prey. The fact that dogs kill people is nothing more than an affirmation of wolf behavior.

History is a good thing, you should study up sometime. The killing of wolves actually coincided with the expansion of agriculture, coincidence? You just eat up propaganda like a fly eats sh*t, don't you?
No, the mass extermination of wolves coincided with the expansion of agriculture. Man has been killing wolves in self defense (to avoid being eaten and to protect food sources) since we learned that we had the ability. You need to brush up on your history and stop feeding on propaganda. Start with the Russian wolves of about two centuries ago.

Considering that wolf numbers are in some cases ten times the agreed upon population level, I fully support regulated wolf hunting. And if it boils down to me or the wolf killing the elk for food, the wolf will lose most of the time.

<quoted text>I'm sure the story was dramatized for entertainment purposes but the portrayal of wolves as stalkers of human prey is very accurate. Wolves are alpha predators and anything they can bring down, kill, and eat is fair game. I have only seen the trailers so far but the story is set in the frozen north in mid winter where food for large predators is at a premium and then in drops a group of unarmed, inexperienced humans. You do the math.
I respect that you are a hunter, as am I, but you are a bit misinformed about wolves. I live in Minnesota and we have at least 3,000 wolves in our state, only Alaska has more and the next most populous wolf population is Montana with about 700 wolves and about 500 people. There has not been a documented case of a wolf attacking a person in Minnesota in modern times. Wolves to attack livestock and pets. I also know of a guy who when he finally got to his whitetail deer three wolves were already feeding on it. We have land in northern Minnesota and there are 6 wolf packs nearby. I watched this movie and found it so outlandish that about an hour into it we just shut it off. It could have been a good movie, I certainly could have been entertained by it, but I was not. The film was badly researched, written, and poorly executed.

Minnesota will have a wolf hunting season this year that will coincide with deer hunting season. The DNR will sell 400 tags but expect few of them to be filled. When I was quite young, actually before I was old enough to hunt deer, we went on a deer hunt in northern Minnesota. I remember seeing two wolves hanging with about a half a dozen deer that a group of hunters had shot. This was just before the timber wolf was put on the endangered species list.

I still haven't seen the movie but I have seen my share of wolves. If the population of reintroduced wolves is allowed to expand, unchecked, into man-territory there will be modern reports of wolf attack on humans. That my friend is a simple fact. The wolf will not make any special allowances for humans, they will do what is natural to them. They will defend territory and they will take as prey anything they have the opportunity to take. If left in the wild places where contact with man is infrequent they will be fine. If they encroach on man-territory people will fall prey, stupid people mostly but the wolf will be back on the kill on sight list after a few stupid people are killed and eaten. I wouldn't want to see that happen. You and I may know how to conduct ourselves in the presence of large predators but civilization in general does not. Civilization will be the death of the wolf all over again if the population isn't contained to those wilderness tracts set aside for them.

They are magnificent creatures, aren't they? If the proper respect is given them in the wilderness they are little threat. In a target rich environment like suburbia it's a whole different story. I would like to see a sustainable balance set to preserve them and keep them to the wilderness. Regulated hunting is a tool that can be used to achieve this. I don't hunt predators but I do understand how it may be necessary as a control method.

Minnesota has about as many wolves as it can handle. There is livestock predation and the laws have been changed so that wolves can be shot if they are going after livestock or pets. Our neighbors have two dogs a larger than average German Shorthair and a small, little mutt. The wolves went after the little one and the bigger dog went after the wolves. They both got scratched up a bit but the wolves did take off. The cattleman owner witnessed the dogfight but could do little other than throw sticks as he was not armed at the time. I don't really believe Minnesota will come to the point where hikers and bikers on our many northern trails really have to worry about a wolf attack. You should hear the naysayers however. Boy are they pissed that wolf restoration has been so successful in Minnesota that their population now must be controlled.
