    Why do you kill a predator? The deer are overpopulated so there is plenty to go around the ~1000 population of wolf, I am not a part of PETA hell i even hunt (for food) pray animals. The things you should not hunt are cats or any felidae member nor any canidae member. You can kill the rabbits ,squirrels ,opossums ,raccoons, deer, birds. Not any predator especially with a gun because that is cowardly…you don’t eat the wolf so don’t kill it. If you think it is beautiful than take a Camara and take a fucking picture…or of any animals you kill and don’t eat or instead of nailing its head to the wall.

    Oh too bad I was not there. I would have shot the human and skinned him. Stretched him out and dried the skin and hanged it to dry. Human skin is really nice to work with. Lamp shades come to mind.

    Taking the apex predator out of the food chain causes its own set of problems. They know that. Then you have too many rabbits and deers, and then people get annoyed with them and start putting poisons out, building endless webs of highways that make it impossible for the animals to safely cover the area they need to cover to find food, or just start shooting. We are the problem. We don’t leave them enough area to support themselves. You start monitoring their numbers too closely and you are going to run into inbreeding problems. They didn’t ask to be brought into a world that’s too selfish to make room for them and let them exist. As for the savage way they hunt or kill, it’s totally natural to want to protect your own animals that you love, but if they do attempt to make a kill, they don’t have hands, or guns or tools or ropes. All they have is their face. They have their paws to run with, and their teeth to grab ahold with, and then they are left with no other choice but to rip, so I don’t think you should hold them accountable for that too. HOw many steaks do each of us eat every year? At least we get to grill ours first. My point there is life is hard for these animals, especially animals of any size or strength. It comes down to they make a kill, or lose their cubs or starve themselves. Put yourself in their shoes and ask what would you do in that position? Fact of the matter is you are grazing your cattle on land, that you bought from a government, who by all accounts of how we killed all the indians to get it, didn’t really have the right to sell it in the first place. I understand the bottom line in business, but in this case, I think they need the break more than the ranchers do. All of our wildlife numbers across the board are shrinking. Do we really want to live on a planet of people, cows, pigs and chickens, because that’s all we’re going to have left. And God said you may eat the animals, he never said you must eat them. And so they are large and agressive. I’d think they would have to be. Just give them some space and watch over your herds, buy a bunch of Rhodesian Razorbacks or something. Just don’t go killing off whole families or packs at one time. They should be allowed to exist.

    Sounds like John is a tough guy. Come on out to Idaho with your pea shooter and let’s see what happens. All you bunny huggers need to realize wolves will be managed in Idaho, get over it. Maybe someday the feds will stick them in your backyard. And you all can go sing kumbaya with the wolves.

  5. Thomas says:

    Hi Cal.
    Jesus was a tough guy, and he had no gun.

    Anti hunters, old women, kids raised by single mothers that grew up in a large city, people that believe that no one is smarter than Wayne Pacelle. Just major ignorance to the way animals think, they believe Disney cartoons are the way they live in the forest. They are just nuts and jealous because they can’t own a gun. Do us a favor buy your meat at walmart and stay away from Idaho. Oh that’s right they go to woods by watching Nat Geo Wild.

    I lived in Kooskia, ID and made the mistake of going for a walking only armed with a 45. I left my AR15 in the house, I had to walk backwards constantly scanning after I heard noises which I believe was either a bear or perhaps a wolf, its no joke out there. I invite any city slicker to visit, and go camping without irons (guns for you folks who don’t savvy)

    God bless Idaho

  8. dduydj says:

    No I don’t live in the city. No I’m not a bunny hugger I eat them.Nor am I a little kid. I hate Disney!
    I know animals think differently from human and I already have a bow and arrow.
    There are about ten thousand wolves in the U.S. yet there are over 87.7 Million cattle and well over 1,000,000 elk.
    What the problem really is is humans overhunting.

    kill all the wolves, they are brutal on elk herds, deer bears and anything they come across. They kill for sport, so we kill them to keep them in check. Sorry tree huggers, Places in Idaho used to be loaded with elk hunters and it brought a lot of money to these small communities, with populations way down because of the wolves no one goes. All you dumb anti wolf hunters need an education. If they should not be hunted…. why is a tag so cheap? why does Idaho fish and game collar them and shoot them? why is there a season? BECAUSE they need to be kept in check!! Hunters do more for wildlife then any of u idiots have ever done. I bet if you were training your dog and watched a pack of wolves rip it to shreds you may have a change of heart, or if your livelihood was being stripped from you because of wolves you would be angry too. look at both sides of the fence, and take your blinders off.

    I do not live in Idaho. I travel through there quite often. That does not make this my business..I wish people from the east and from the coast would mind their own business. I do enjoy the woods, both hunting and fishing, but will not walk into the bush where an apex predator lives without a weapon, and cannot imagine the trepidation that a mother feels living next to an area where they have been released when her child goes to play in the backyard,. I admire wolves, but I would not want to live with them in large numbers

  11. David says:

    A few years ago a several generation rancher in the Dillon area of Montana went to check on his sheep. He and his father before him were creating a superior breed through genetic trait selection for 75 years. A pack of just three wolves slaughtered every one of these sheep in a very short period of time. In the interview with the rancher he got emotional because seventy five years of work was gone, he personally knew every animal. (This story is easy to find with a google search). Where I’m from, they kill ALL the moose calves EVERY year, what used to be a common sighting now us very rare. The elk no longer bugle, and the heard we used to see and hunt for generations is almost completely gone. The sound of a bugling elk is unmatched and no more. Wolves are a cool thing to see, but they are like no other predator in that they truly hunt for sport. The will run a herd of elk to the brink of death then kill them. They have been good for the bears in Yellowstone because they leave a lot of meat for them. They have decimated the Yellowstone Elk herd. The scary thing is, it happened so fast! They very seldom hunt deer. Mountain Lions are the deer predator, they eat about 52 deer a year. Man has the gift of trying to fix something and making it much worse. We do very poorly fixing what we screwed up to begin with. It needs to be remembered that MAN is the apex predator, and until someone wants to run naked in the woods and change that, we need to be responsible.

    Hunting wolves is a must if you have a problem with this go do your homework since the wolves were reintroduces the northern elk herlds in Yellowstone has dropped 89% as of a year ago the annual elk count in northern Yellowstone was 4643 elk when back before the wolves were reintroduced it was 22,000 plus. For that area. Studies have shown that these wolves kill not just for food but for fun. I have been up hunting and have came across 8 dead elk where the only thing that was eaten was the guts from the elk. They where left to rot. The reason that I know wolves had done this is I saw the bastards and if I would have had a rifle and not a bow I would have shot one. I live here in idaho. I hunt and fish idaho. I am going to college into a wildlife studies . And the thing that drives me nuts are people that do not live here that think they can run my state and never have been here and seen what really goes on here these ass holes that have only seen idaho through a pitcher and thing they know what’s going one in our wilderness what is going on and happening to our wildlife. If you have not lived here and seen the what is going on then say out. I love my state and I will protect it to the best of my ability. The more wolves harvested the better our state will be. Until we get them under a management number we will have problems with our wildlife. There will not be a. Balance that there needs to be. And untill then the only one that are going to hurt are us small town people who rely on the hunting recreation activities to bring in the money so we can live and provide for our family’s. Thanks to the drop in our big game population. So did the jobs in a lot of areas for a lot of people

    I do live in Idaho and don’t understand the fear people have with this animal. I hike extensively in the backcountry and have never once encountered one. Deer are everywhere, can’t believe a few wolves threaten as many game animals as we have. Hunters have blown this way out of proportion.

  14. stop says:

    Are you kidding me! Okay I get it if your getting attacked by a predator and they are about to take your life or someone you care about, then yeah shoot em’ or atleast scare them away, but dont kill them for fun or to simply get rid of them. That would cause the prey you usually kill like elk to over populate. Think thats good? It’s not. This just causes elk to eat all the food, meaning there wont be enough for the elk. And be honest you wont be able to keep it under control. All the elk will die. So will any of your “game” animals. The ecosystem needs to be balanced, for your little hunting “game” to survive. So be smart. I actually like hunting and fishing. Please dont ruin it, keep it alive.


  15. Dana says:

    Let me get this straight. You’re helping wildlife by killing wildlife? Do you not see the irony in that? Your poor excuses of wolves attacking humans and fearing for your lives is so inaccurate. Wolf attacks on humans are extremely rare. And there are ways to keep wolves away from livestock nowadays. Youre all full of poor, poor excuses that can easily be refuted. The only people youre fooling are yourselves.

  16. john smith says:

    Everyone knows the wolf kills for fun. Good shot on getting that one. Can’t wait for my shot at a wolf..

  17. otis says:

    Wolves are actually man’s friends. They keep the deer herds healthy and the rabbit population under control. They eat a lot of field mice and rats that eat a farmers grain. They kill any snake they find and they keep other predators away from farmers and ranchers livestock. They avoid killing man’s livestock because they know they would be hunted and killed. They make good neighbors and there has never in recorded history in the world of any unprovoked wolf attacking a man. Man is obligated to keep our wild animal friends safe from harm and we are obligated to maintain and protect their habitat. When they introduced wolves back into Yellowstone park they made a great improvement in the elk and deer and even caused ecological changes for the better in the rivers and streams. Wolves are special animals and the Great Spirit likes to see men protect our wildlife creatures.

  18. John D says:

    I live in the sticks of nc with the bear’s and the red wolf’s I don’t have a problem with them in fact bear’s are more of a pain in the ass.The red wolf’s were reintroduced here several year ago and there’s still a abundance of deer in the area.Last year my Chesapeake bay retriever was attacked by a black bear in the backyard.

  19. Bryan P says:

    Did they go around and find the biggest wolfs possible to reintroduce to Idaho?

  20. colten says:

    Hunting wolves is good for the environment it allows the deer and elk to reproduce without stress because the stress can effect the reproduction rate.

  21. Robert A says:

    I live in Nevada but I own property on the salmon river. I used to hunt elk in that area for years. Not anymore. Why? Because the wolves are killing all of the wildlife. One morning I woke up in my trailer on my property to find a small herd of elk around my trailer. Why? They are afraid to go into the woods. They would rather be around humans. These are not normal lower 48 states Wolves but large Alaskan Timber wolves! What idiot thought this was a good idea! Well, this will all be solved soon as the idiots who thought is was a good thing (fish and game and other wildlife officials) won’t get a retirement because no one wants to hunt there anymore and the money is not coming in. hope they all lose their jobs. God Bless America and may the liberals go to hell!
