Many years ago I read a report by some anti hunting group that encouraged thier members to shoot dogs, cows , or horses during the hunting season to put more blame on hunters. This was considered a necessary sacrifice for the greater goal.

These are very sick people.

As I understand it from

As I understand it from ranchers around here, there are and hve been prairie wolves east of here for a long time. The wolves they are concerned with are the grey wolves and they won't tolerate them. Few months back two were taken out around Baker City somewhere for killing livestock. Ranchers will likely take them out as they are seen, SSS. It is sad that an animal as beautiful as the grey wolf has been released into civilization again. While I like the wolves, they can't survive in civilization, they are to much a preditor and extreamly territorital. They catch your dog on their turf, your dog will die!

A wolf can do a lot of

A wolf can do a lot of wandering in very little time.  I got this map off of another forum and it shows the wandering of one wolf for seven months.  I remember last year an outfitter named High Lonesome Outfitting had reported seeing a wolf and that the Colorado DOW had picked up some scat to be tested.  That along with a news story in the Denver Post about it.  This was the same wolf that was seen in the Vail area and ended up being killed in Eagle County by the poison 1080 which is suppose to be banned by all except for government trappers.  So the question isn't if a wolf will end up in other areas of the west but when.

Yep, that wolf was collared

Yep, that wolf was collared in Montana above Yellowstone Park and in seven months was out of there and in the four other states showing with that red line.  I forget how many miles it had traveled in that short period of time, but it was absolutely unbelievable!

Well, I wonder if it was

Well, I wonder if it was poached, or if someone was hunting coyotes, shot it, then realized the collar and that it was about 2-3 times as big as a coyote, and left it.

Neither way is acceptable, but is more understandable at least.
