They sure don't look like wild wolves, I thought. This doesn't look like wolf country either.Before me bustles a crowd of scientists and onlookers

I posted this story because sadly, these wolves are in the "kill zone", now explain this to me? and explain it to the children who have learned so uch from them, and explain it the the wolves who are the true victims here. They are not even afraid of the mortars, blastings, army trainings, so when the wolf hunters come in (mostly from out of state), these pups... omg, My soul is torn up for these wolves. 12 days from now the shootings start in Wisconsin, and the hunters, mostly coming in from southern states, are murdering wolves, and then going across the Mississippi to kill more in Minnesota. I resigned my Federal Wildlands and Woodlands Cert. Jan. 26th because of my position on the wolves. I stand behind my reasoning.

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"

You cannot currently send a star to Roxy because you have done so within the last week.--I tried

Noted and tweeted and very sad about what is going to happen. We have to learn not to solve our problems by killing. We need to value our wildlife. Thanks, Roxy for sharing.

There should no be a kill zone. We keep taking more and more of their habitat (as well as all the wildlife) and care only about our own selfish desires. This is highly immoral and deplorable to say the least. Live and help live!!

What a oxymoron - a mixed bag ! Sentimentality and barbarity toward wildlife. And underneath some of that sentimentality, I can't help but feel it's really condescension and a need to control.

Noted. Thanks so much, Roxy. This is a great article. So sad about them being in the "kill zone". They should stop killing wolves as it's horrendous and unnecessary.

Yeh true we are the most obnoxious species to roam the planet-killing for sport, killing for the sake of killing & killing more then we care to eat.

The National Guard are so proud of those wolves, I wouldn't want to be the ones carrying the rifles in there and facing them to kill those wolves. Heartless greedy hunters, brutal murder, makes me sick!

The article points out that most killing is of dispersing wolves, and has been illegal.
We're finding this to be true everywhere there are too many roads open.

At all seasons, likkered up and stoned out (meth and the usual) people enjoy using their guns to defy the law on this. It's too bad that the "outlaw" mentality follows political thinkers, rather than aligns with those who want to protect the self-willed life not domesticated/enslaved. (Aside: so they're not "outlaws" at all).

Camp Ripley is pretty flat country with woods that seem open to me. Not enough lakes & swamps right there. You in MN might have noticed the huge increase in large costly motor vehicles now owned by the National Guard. That sign will mean that the wolf packs are more vulnerable to the opening.

During my life mostly deer and squirrels were hunted in MN (I'm a native, although having left long ago except for visits), and so the sporting gunners have a huge desire to feel more "manly", than that, especially when alcohol content is increased. I mention this to help care2 people understand why they cannot reach such people. I once saw my uncle and friends load cases of beer onto the floatplane that took them into North Ontario for a week. They had little food, just that. They're afraid of black bears there too - it seems that fear and gun use go together with most people, so you can bet they fear the little wolves of MN (Some coyote DNA mixed in, and with Lyme & Hydatid tapeworms up in the lake country, they are slim, small, and hungry.)
