First of all the woman was Native American, or so I was told. She aught to have known better then to have the wolves in the first place. Wolves belong in the wild, not in peoples back yards. I feel bad for the family, however those wolves should NOT have been shot. They should have been transported across the country to Yellowstone, or someplace in Canada where they could have lived free like they were ment to do in the first place. They had only resorted back to their natural instinques. They are meat eaters, and wild. And not ment to be pets.

I agree with you that they shouldn't of been shot, but I don't think releasing them into the wild would of been a good idea. They were not a pure wolf they had domesticated dog in them and they wouldn't be able to survive in the wild. I also think people are going a little overboard. They haven't even determind if it was the dogs that killed this woman. If she died in the pen, any canine even domesticated dogs would sence that and then try to eat it. It is in all dogs nature. I have 2 wolf dogs and they are the best dogs I have ever had. My oldest is 8 years old and we have had her since she was a puppy. Not once ever has she shown any sign of aggression towards us. Our youngest one, who is the oldests ones daughter, is the sweetest dog I have ever had. They are protective and loving animals. It is all in how you raise them. Any dog can turn visious if they are treated badly or negelted. Our dogs sleep in our bed and let our sons use them as pillows all the time. So I don't think it is fair to judge this cetain animal, it is almost being racist in the animal. Animals are like humans, there are good ones and bad ones, but you can't say this type is bad this one is good, it all depends on the individual.
