Not only that, some of these comments don't sound plausible.
Wolves are rarely to never red colored.
So the person seeing that red colored wolf by itself should also consider that wolves very rarely travel or roam without the pack, and you can hear the bunch yip and howl.
Now despite that fellers decription about coyotes, I have never seen Coyotes attack a person unless they felt cornered or seperated from their kits.
There are a couple of coyote packs that regulary patrol the wild wodded area surrounding my home. Last night I 'howled down' a male coyote with my harmonica. The whole pack was listening.
He couldn't compete once my mojo started working.
Now aqbout those reinstated wolves into WV...why would the Gov do that?
In Montana they reinstated wolves, wich might hav e been sound and nagtural, except.....instaed of the smaller native varity of wolf, the infinit sidowm of DC plante the very lerge ALaskan hybrid wolf. They just about wiper out ietock, withc outnumnbers umanas, in OMatna.
I grew up in West Virginia. There are a lot of things you obviously don't know. Yes, wolves area native to West Virginia. As a matter of fact, the coyote hybrids that we have here are a result of the native wolf. Wolves started breeding with coyotes, and therefore that is why the Eastern Coyote is considerably larger than its western counterpart, and as for why they sometimes hunt and travel in packs. So next time when you think you know something, and obviously you really don't, then maybe you should keep you comments to yourself.

I have lived in West Virginia my whole life the last 37 years to be exact and have seen and have helped trapped and tag black bear for the DNR many times, we have a ton of wildlife here, turkey, black bear, coon, coyotes, fox, bob cat, mountain lions, etc....the list goes on and on. I have seen two wolves and yes I know the difference of a real wolf compared to a wolfdog hybrid, I've done research on them for eight years now. We were driving from Milton/ Huntington area and on the side of the interstate on the grassy part we seen two very large black wolves take down a doe and start ripping her to shreds. We were shocked and thought we were seeing things so we slowed down and pulled over and watched out of our back window, the drug the doe into the woods it was an amazing thing to watch. I raise Saint Bernards and English mastiffs and I know what big is! These wolves were taller than my mastiffs they were huge and may I add very beautiful! Wolves are not like coyotes, my brother was attacked by a coyote while he was laying beside a tree watching for deer one hunting season. Unless wolves are no longer afraid of humans they are frightened of us. Wolves are very shy animals, they do not seek ppl out nor do they attack unless they are sick or as I've said are no longer afraid of humans. I have also raised a litter of wolf cubs I bottle fed them and raised them until they were shipped to a zoo they were not the vicious creatures ppl perceive them to be. Thank you

Wolves are very intelligent as you know they have larger brains than than domesticated dogs have. Wolves are beautiful creatures, I've seen many in the last 12 years. I've met with several specialist that study the wolf and raise them and breed them.( the real thing) 80% of the time they only kill the weak or injured this is. Fact! Just because we do not see the animal that they attack and eat limping or injured doesn't mean they don't sense it. But yes some times they are just plain hungry and kill other animals, but so do us humans when we want deer met and go shoot an innocent deer for meat to eat. It's the circle of life. So many uneducated ppl out there go by what they see in movies that's ridiculous! If wolves were in your woods right now, mots of the time you would not see them, oh you would most likely hear them howl that's how they communicate, but they would not be stalking you or your family and attack you or bust through your plate glass window at night to kill you. Again they are very shy animals, that's a lot of the reason when ppl do breed them to domesticated dogs, there is trouble. When ppl see that this cute little wolf hybrid puppy is to much and they end up on the street or in pounds. A wolf hybrid is still part wolf, ppl seem to forget that. Wolves do not do well kennels up or tied up, they need to be free. And when you breed domestic dog to a wolf it leaves them confused, they have the traits of the dog and the wolf. They don't know how to act sometimes. High content wolves do not make good pets for ppl that are not experienced wolf ppl. They can wreak havoc on a house if left unattended. So pleas before you buy or breed to create wolf dog hybrids do your research and be. Dedicated breeder and be very careful who you place your puppy/ cubs with because if your wolf dog hybrid gets lose and decided to visit a farm it will most likes be shot and killed due to the lack of your supervision. But yes there are wolves in West Virginia, and Virginia but unless you actually see them you'll never know.

I just thought that I would share there was a wolf shot and killed in Ky., in Hart co. They guy has mistaken it for a coyote until he saw how big it was and talked officials into checking it out. Most people were conviced it wasn't until DNA test confirmed it was a grey wolf. There is a pic on the internet of it. It was killed March 2013, I think.

The Red Wolf (Yes it is red) is a smaller wolf than the Gray Wolf. There has been a lot of cross breeding between Red Wolves and Coyotes. This has resulted in what some biologist call a Super Coyote, able to pull down a White Tail Deer on it's own. There has been many cases of Coyotes, and the Red Hybrids attacking humans. Any one that thinks it does not happen is a fool.

As for the Gray Wolf, they will attack humans too. Look up the attack that happened at Chignik Alaska a few years ago. Wolves attacked a young teacher as she was jogging after school. The first attack she was able to fight them off and get up and run. Second attack again she was able to fight them off and make a run to get away. Third attack the wolves won. The Wolves ate their fill and left. Yes the Wolves killed and ate her.

We commonly see Wolf attacks here in Alaska, so get ready it's coming to a neighborhood near you. Anywhere their is Wolves sooner or later they will decide humans are a good food source.

By the way, Wolves do not only kill sick and injured animals. I've seen them attack and pull down healthy bull Moose and Caribou. I've also seen Wolves attack and leave animals dying on their feet. Then go chase another one, ripping it's belly open, to die a slow death. Then off they go to chase another one. I came back weeks later and found over 150 dead Caribou. Wolves had killed them, but had not fed off them.

National Geographic had a big story about the Red Wolf, Coyote hybred a few years ago. It was very interesting. I would suggest you look it up and read it. Very informative.

I am not a biologist that studies them a few days a year. I live in their country, and see them daily. I've had more than one try and sneak up on me. I've had them try and get into my horse corrals at night. Talked to bicyclist who were chased by Wolves while riding on the highway. I've seen the aftermath of a pack of Wolves getting into a Musher's dog lot, and killing his entire team.

There is a reason our forefathers killed animals off. It was to protect the farmer and children. It used to be safe to wonder around and not worry about being attacked by some animal. Its bad enough these trash bears are around that DNR takes out of the city and gives to the country folk to deal with. Wv has way more population than Maine and Montana when it comes to people. That being said a lot of animals loose their fear of man since they are used to man and when they cross up with dogs its worse. Sorry but if I see them they are gonna get shot.

I think they're better than coyotes. Wolves are peaceful animals and they won't hurt you, unless it's sick or if you do something to him. A coyote will attack for no reason. I've always thought they're were wolves here. I live in Martinsburg, around a wooded area. And me ad my dad have herd howls, and it wasn't a coyote, I know that horrible scream. It sounded like a wolf.
u say wolfs are peaceful do u really know what you are talking about they don't need to be here and coyotes don't scream the wolfs will kill off most of the deer, turkey population it's bad enough that the coyote do a good job of it

Do your research. Wolves are native to the area. And red wolves are not rare. They're a different species than greys. There is an entire wild red wolf colony in NC
