The largest wolf harvested weighed 117 pounds. The most wolves killed on any one day was 10. The oldest hunter to shoot a wolf was 70 years old. The youngest was 13.

These are just some of the facts contained in a summary on this year’s wolf hunt released Tuesday by Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks.

"Montana just pulled off a very successful hunt of a new species, especially given the level of scrutiny on the hunt," Sime said. "From every consideration, we showed the sky isn’t going to fall. It was a good day for Montana."

I suppose the part of the sky not falling is meant as a jab.

However, depending on the version of the "fable", the moral changes. In the "happy ending" version, the moral is not to be a "Chicken", but to have courage. In other versions the moral is usually interpreted to mean "do not believe everything you are told". In the latter case, it could well be a cautionary political tale: The Chicken jumps to a conclusion and whips the populace into mass hysteria, which the unscrupulous fox uses to manipulate them for his own benefit, sometimes as supper, and in another version the sky actually falls and kills Foxy Loxy.
