Sometimes we don't realize that loving animals the human way can actually be harmful.  To the wildlife as well as yourself.  Even something as simple as proper garbage disposal.  Too bad our lessons come after our actions.

A good post to remember, Nakoowolf.

You're right, Nakoowolf.  They aren't even seeing them if they have snares up. 

I still don't understand what did the female wolf do that caused a safety concern for her to be the first one killed?Watching from the sidelines    All that the article said was she was 40 yards away and since she was closest, he targeted her.  Am is missing to catch a behavior?

40 yards is far.  That's four times further than that video of the Imnaha Pack who were said to be 10 yards away.

Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson residents were advised to avoid remote trailsIdea, travel in groupsIdea, carry air hornsIdea or pepper-sprayIdea for protectionIdea and stay observant.Idea Sometime after that story appeared, however, the decision was made to remove the wolves. A spokeswoman for the base's public affairs office, contacted for this story, said, "Fish and Game came to us and said, 'We have a problem.' The decision was made by Fish and Game."

The death warrant for the four to six wolves believed to be in the pack was sealed not because of what wolves do or what these wolves might actually have done, but because of what they might do...ConfusedMad (speculation of what they might do is imaginative; IMO people are more dangerous and unpredictable)

And it is the danger inherent in wolves hunting dogs that has pushed Alaska Fish and Game and the Department of Defense to the conclusion that the Elmendorf pack should be eliminated, as the military might say, "with extreme prejudice."

NW Anchorage wolf pack targeted by Alaska feds

A new reason to kill wolves, public safety

What a ridiculous article--I do not know a lot of wolf behavior but I know there is no clue about real wolf behavior written in it.  Grabbin' at straws to justify killing.  I resent the military plane F18 or something in the picture with wolves painted on it.  What is that supposed to mean?
