Wolf (non) Attack !!

Recommended Posts

Ufatz

Before everybody craps their pants over the big "wolf attack" story in the news today please remain calm and examine the FACTS. The wolves did NOT attack the girl joggers, they attacked, or attempted to attack, their dogs. This is a COMMON occurence in the north. I probably know a dozen people who lost dogs to wolves and once had wolves within ten yards eyeing my Labrador. It IS unusual for this to happen near Anchorage. You may see the fella Rick talking about the situation. Rick KNOWS about wolves! You will note he does not appear to be hysterical or near peeing his pants (HA). I know Rick.

I only post this because I know what happens when the %^%$^% brain dead media gets their hands on a story like this. Wolves eat dogs routinely in Alaska. If they get caught in the act most people shoot them of course.

Okay, spread the word to all the pablum pukers that they should remain calm and not run in circles screaming and shouting.

You're welcome. grin.gif

it's been going on in Anchorage, Alaska. So far this winter somewhere around 7 or 8 dogs have been attacked by wolves within town limits.

A follow-up: The area involved is near a military base near Anchorage, but some distance from "downtown" Anchorage. According to my sources the area has now been closed to hiking, snow shooing etc. There have been signs in place warning people that there are wolves in the area.

There are THREE confirmed reports of dogs being grabbed. It is NOT tha uncommon in Alaska. NO joggers (

or anybody else) has been attacked. Wolves often lose their fear of man-to a degree. We used to have a big black wolf come into the meadow behind our Yukon place and lay there in the sun watching us. If we moved toward him he would fade into the woods.

I mainly post regading this because I have seen how folks in this part of the country often grin.gifget their panties in a knot instantly at the very word W O L F! Ha!

Being unfamiliar with the area in which this occured, I have a question. Is there a hunting or trapping season for wolves in this area?

Oh, jeeze - thanks Ufatz - for calling "WOLF" for "US" before we made an ass out of our selves.

That is pompous man.

Yes, trapping is allowed in the area and it is likely trappers will take care of the problem over next couple months. Just a bad year for moose and other prey thus wolves take the easy stuff. It's a small pack.

Happily, the story has quickly faded before hysteria could get a grip. wink.gif

I hope this story does get a lot of hype. It usually gets put on the shelf right away by the liberal left who support these "granola eating lets reintroduce wolves everywhere crowd".

I don't know about the rest of you, but if I was out walking my dog(s) and a pack of wolves came in, eyeing me, or my dogs, I would consider it a serious situation and would label it an attack on myself.

These critters are getting out of control up there along with the bears are reeking havoc on the moose population.

I hope the helicopter shooting/culling starts soon. tongue.gif

The folks living around Anchorage are not taking this problem lightly. And reading some of their threads from another site it is not only a single pack issue.

These are folks who are not prone to flights of fancy and are considered very knowledgeable in regards to wildlife and the outdoors.

And yes you have the right to protect your self and your property from a threat.

TommyJ, I was thinking the same thing (kind of... as I lean left :)) If a pack of wolves came upon me and my dogs, I would crud my pants. Once I understood that this happened in AK, I was at ease a bit more. AK has some serious wolves and will never be able to get rid of them. About 15 years ago, they used to shoot them from airplanes just to keep the numbers down. I love wolves along with all animals, but they need to be managed so that we and our loved pets are safe. I also agree that the media could jump all over this and blow it out of proportion. But, what if that happened in MN? AK is different because 10 miles from Anchorage is the wild and wooly world of mother nature.

PS: Did you know in AK they have a day that celebrates Texas. One day a year, they split the state in half and call Texas the third biggest state. ALso, what do you call an Alaskan in Texas? Claustrophobic grin.gif

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?
    • Bigfatbert
      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..
