They are not driving down the population they are causing them to form prides for protection. There are more damn lions in Stevens county now than any other time in my life. Just saw another post where there were four crossing the road on highway 231 this morning. I've seen trail cam pics of 8,11 and in one 13 cats. Believe it or not I don't care. The Washington Department of Predator Propagation is doing a bang-up job.

Displaced cats, by wolves or cat over crowding, are pushing into new habitats.  Breaks of the Snake, central desert, neighborhoods with yard deer for just a start.  Do you want your first grader standing at the bus stop these days?  The best answer is probably hounds as a on going study should demonstrate.  Keep the pressure on WDFW.

I got ridiculed a few years back for suggesting kids would need bus stop cages..about now


What a bunch of emotional hogwash! Wolf proof school bus cages? Evidently they weren't worried about cougars or bears, huh? Those animals actually kill children as do dogs quite regularly. Never heard of a wolf proof school bus stop in Alaska or Canada. Those New Mexican kids must be more tasty to wolves.


I don't know if you're married or have kids sitka-blacktail,  but you'd have to pretty solid in your beliefs to send your kids out to the bus in the dark after hearing wolves out side.




In the past 100 years maybe 5 people have been killed in North America by wolves. In the past 10 years more than 250 people have been killed by domestic dogs in America. There has been over 40 million dog bites and over 450,000 requiring emergency room care also in the last 10 years in America.

...and your worried about wolves hurting your kids because you hear one howl.

Makes perfect sense to me...
:bash:

It's amazing any children are left in Alaskan villages with such a threat looming!
