Chris Says:

The wolf looks so drugged and disorientated.Broken Heart  The antenna sticking out the top of that huge awful collar.Sad  The official has no protective gloves while handling the wolf in the photo.  I wonder if that could be potentially harmful to the wild wolf.Watching from the sidelines 

I think that the collaring is more for "control" purposes so they can find them should any predation occur rather than a helpful "eye" purposes because there are non-intrusive howlboxes and fur catching pads that are very informative but don't allow for control (killing the wolf).


I actually think that Wolf looks pretty darn good for just starting to come out of anesthesia.  I do hate that they are keeping taps on him with that huge collar.  I doubt that the fact that the official has no gloves on will be harmful to the Wolf.  It will most likely be a great scent for the Wolf to share with the pack.  They will probably want to roll on him. Smile

I agree with you Chris that it is for control purposes and not in any way designed to "help" the wolf. Thumbs Down  This is something I would like to see stopped.  Very intrusive. SadBroken Heart

Say Chris are all satellite-tracking collars that big?Watching from the sidelines Seams to me that could enter fear with their daily living and hunting. Watching from the sidelines


Hi, Dreamcatcher.  Yes, that is the standard size used for wolves, large cats, or any mid-sized mammal.  It is large due to the size of the batteries (one is a backup) required to store the data, report transmission, operate the GPS receiver, run the VHF beacon and last a couple of years.
