Sorry to burst you bubble, but if any wild animal, raccoon, ground hog, wild dog, fox, coyote, or grey wolf kills our goats, miniature cows or chickens, I will be judge jury and executioner. Why is it worse for me to kill an animal predator who is killing my livestock than for this predator to kill my animals. Too many regulations have remove common sense out of From the brains of the people in government office. My family has received many awards for conservation enhancement of animals and habitat. But I use my God given common sense.

Kat sure isn't from Hart Co. KY. Your wolf avocation probably falls among deaf ears around people who have never even encountered one in the wild or ever even seen one. Early morning hunt, calling in predators isn't any joking matter. This guy made an easy mistake and immediately contacted the correct people. Go preach wolves in Wyoming or at least somewhere that has them.....

If one can't tell a wolf from a coyote, then one shouldn't be hunting. I'm a hunter and wolf advocate. I advocate because the wolf is the one apex predator missing from the landscape for too long. It's easy to live with this animal, that has caused the healing of a terribly overgrazed Yellowstone, to recover to the healthiest the Park has ever been in my 58 years of observations. They don't hunt humans(never a recorded case of a wolf killing a human in America since recorded history); they do very little livestock depredation(less than 0.04% of cattle were lost to a wolf last year, while over 26% died of pneumonia); all other animals, including birds and fish benefit from wolves presence; the improve the game animals, by hunting those that are old, sick, injured, leaving the healthiest to breed(Montana went from around 88,000 elk in 1995 to over 143,000 this past year and for the third straight year, Wyoming had a record number of bull elk taken in the hunt; as Nature is allowed to balance itself naturally with wolves present, the other predators such as the coyote will diminish in numbers. Way to much myth and misinformation is given too much credit, when the science of the wolf has been published in numerous journals and articles.
