"As I was walking along this old logging road, I came upon the track of what could presumably be considered a rather large gray wolf," said Mattson. He said while looking at the track, he thought it would be cool to see the animal that left it.
Soon, much to his chagrin, that very thought would become prophetic in more ways than one.
Continuing further along the logging road, which was shaped like a horseshoe, Mattson came upon what he believed to be a she-wolf and a younger wolf, standing over a freshly-killed doe.
"When I saw them, I stopped a good 50 to 60 yards away. What I didn't notice, however, was one very large wolf beginning to angle his way toward me from behind," said Mattson.
It wasn't until after he heard the snarling and growling from behind that he realized the situation he was in.
Did you read this comment?
Mattson conveniently left out the fact that he is Secretary for the UP Sportsman's Alliance, one of the groups that petitioned the USFWS for the delisting of the wolf. It is apparent Mattson has his own agenda for telling this story.
I had not as of posting but remember Mattson's statements when the UPSA filed a friend of the court motion to delist in August. I like comment #7
It aired on the Marquette TV 6, and there's a taller story in woods n water of the wolf being 150 pounds. It was never reported to the DNR? A snarling growling wolf behind him and he is faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomative, able to leap tall trees in a single bound..... hahahahahah
Funny -- There are dozens of biologist, researchers not to mention the volunteer wolf trackers, hikers, campers and never has this happened. Remember MH's daughter lived near the Michigan border where dense wolf populations are documented and had never seen a wolf.
Roell even doubted it and people are rolling their eyes about this so cheers to fear mongering fading away.
Cheers to education. Cheers to wolf passion not fading away. Cheers to you, Nakoowolf.and the Big Dog.
“All those fairy tales, fables and the like have created a wolf in the imagination that is very different from the real wolf living out its life just trying to find a mate, raise pups and kill enough prey to survive,” Wright said.
