What is the deal???? Bears and Mountain lions have started stalking humans, specifically! How many people, just out for a walk or bike ride, have been killed and/or attacked by Those predators in the last several years???. These wolves were WATHCING a herd of ELK!! They have not attacked, in fact no wolf attack on humans has ever been recorded!! What IS this utter HATRED and bloodlust when it comes to wolves???The way nature worked of millions of years before WE got here was a balance of predator and prey. Wolves were re-introduced to the US from here, Canada, at their request!! to re-balance the ecology of Yellowstone National Park. They accomplished that, now out come the Wolf-Haters. Honestly, I believe that this is a horrible, destructive human malady - kill all animals until only our food ones are lef like in Chinat, take every shortcut possible to produce the meat (to the detriment of the animals including the humans who eat them. "you are what you eat" - so if the animals you eat are unhealthy and full of chemicals, so will you be.
What is here is Nature Who balances Herself out. Until the maybe fatal mistake: HUMANS
Growing up in the bush of Northern Ontario I only saw wolves once, they spotted me from a mile and took off. My father was a hunter and guide. How many times did he warn me about bears, wolverines, even weasel, who kill out of bloodlust, one of the only animals other than us to do so. But he NEVER warned me about wolves. No one up there ever talked about wolves as a danger, more as a remarkable thing to see or here one. People travel to Alquonquin Park everyyear for the Wolf Howl - ecotourism... What is it in the US? Do men feel emasculated by the mere presence of wolves?? They are worse than the wolverines my father warned me about!! The title here is just SO typical of the Wolf Frenzy! People must have watched too many werewolf movies...

I have only seen one wolf in the wild. I was horse back riding through the Bob Marshall wilderness in western Montana. As soon as I saw him I knew we were brothers.
Would you kill a brother?

Why are some of you having aproblem with this story? The wolves are only exhibiting their instinctual behavior. They need to eat, therefor they hunt (stalk). Do you want them to starve? Or maybe be put into zoos and fed a veggie diet?
What next? Start a petition to make wolves non-meat eater? ROFLMHO!
