Italians Know What’s Best for Wolves

Even though in Italy wolves are protected by law, it appears the citizens are taking the law into their own hands, as they well should. Tired of the onslaught of attacks and destruction of property and threats of attacks on humans, some in Italy have taken to killing the wolves and displaying the decapitated heads at the entrance to the town in a fashion described as similar to signs posted by construction workers at construction sites.

This is a link to the original article in Italy.

This is the link to the translated to English version.

Excerpt:

“The severed head of a wolf was found hanging from a sign at the roundabout leading to the cellar social of the Morellino di Scansano, at the entrance of the village. Next to a sign, like that of construction sites, to announce the start of a project entitled “Elimination predators” for “ecosystem restoration”. They were the workers of the hilly town, who have experienced the municipal, to find the gruesome cartel. The sign is also in charge of the yard, “Red Riding Hood”, while security officers are defined “public Spent.””

The Continued Insanity of Wolf Introduction

It is becoming more common to read and see events such as the one where a person’s young colt gets slaughtered by wolves, among other assorted property losses, attacks on humans and the spread of deadly disease, and yet the perverts continue to defy sanity and plan to place more of them useless, disease-infested, criminal animals onto the landscape. Not only is the continued act a substantiation of insanity, it is very telling that such action is a tool for the destruction of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

What was once white is black, what was right is wrong. Everything is the opposite of what was once taught. And among the insanity, we read press releases like the one below, in which officials plan to release more useless, mongrel, hybrid, mixed-breed canine killers into the countryside.

From the Arizona Game and Fish Department:

NEWS RELEASE

For immediate release, Feb. 14, 2014

Plan announced for 2014 Mexican wolf releases in Arizona
Releases to replace wolves illegally shot between 2011 and 2013

PHOENIX – The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) and the Arizona Game and Fish Department (AGFD) have initiated actions for the release of two Mexican wolves in Arizona to replace wolves illegally shot, as directed by the Arizona Game and Fish Commission in 2012 and to increase the genetic diversity of the wild population.

The Mexican Wolf Interagency Field Team (IFT) tasked with the day-to-day management of the wild population captured two wild males during the January winter population count. M1249 was taken to the Service’s Sevilleta Wolf Management Facility in New Mexico and is paired with a captive female wolf. M1290 was paired with a captive female wolf and is being held in a release pen in the Apache National Forest.

Neither of the male wolves has documented involvement in livestock depredations or nuisance behavior, making the animals good candidates for pairing with a captive female and subsequent release. Both wolf pairs are being observed for breeding behavior and will be released into the primary recovery zone in Arizona in the spring prior to giving birth.

“This is one of the important steps in Game and Fish’s commitment to replace the four wolves lost to illegal causes between 2011 and 2013. One of the key considerations when the options were evaluated was to improve population genetics, which is important to the long-term survival of the subspecies,” said Jim deVos, the Arizona Game and Fish Department’s assistant director for wildlife management.

An additional option to replace wolves illegally shot and to increase the genetic diversity of the wild population – cross fostering wolf pups born in captivity into a wild wolf pack litter – still remains under consideration and will be evaluated in the future.

“The pairing of genetically valuable females with males with wild experience accomplishes two goals, adding genetically valuable genes into the population and replacing wolves that were taken illegally,” said Benjamin Tuggle, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Southwest Regional Director. “If these pairs successfully establish themselves in the wild, they will increase population numbers immediately and will contribute to a more genetically robust population in the future.”

In 2013, the IFT attempted the release or translocation of two pairs of wolves and a single wolf into the Blue Range Wolf Recovery Area. A single male was released into Arizona and recaptured in New Mexico shortly after release for displaying nuisance behavior. Plans to release a pair of wolves in Arizona were halted when another pack displayed territorial aggression and threatened the safety of the new pair. That pair was returned to captivity. In addition, a pair of wolves was translocated into the Gila Wilderness of New Mexico. However, the male dispersed outside of the recovery area boundary and was recaptured, and the female was later legally shot and killed on private land in the act of killing livestock.

Release sites will be chosen based on several factors including appropriate prey density, distance from occupied residences, seasonal absence of livestock grazing, and occurrence of established wolf packs in the area.

The Mexican wolf population is estimated to be at least 83 animals, the highest number of wolves since the reintroduction began in 1998.

The Reintroduction Project partners are AGFD, White Mountain Apache Tribe, USDA Forest Service and USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service – Wildlife Services, several participating counties in Arizona, the Eastern Arizona Counties Organization, and the Service.

One Reason People Hate Useless Diseased Wolves

The perverted bastards who promote this kind of destruction should pay dearly for it. The perversion is akin to loving brain cancer. Sick!

This little guy became the victim of those disease-ridden mass killers.

Wolves Follow Caribou Herd. Lack of Snow Forces Wolves In Town

The brash behavior is related to the movement of the Western Arctic Caribou Herd, Moto said. Stakeholders in North America’s largest herd met last week to discuss all things caribou [2] at the Western Arctic Caribou Herd Working Group annual meeting in Anchorage. Among the hot topics was the observation of more predators closer to the villages.

“The movement of the caribou correlates with where the wolves go,” said Moto, who is also a member of the caribou working group.

There have been caribou about 35 miles south of Deering. And because they have moved to a snowless area, they’re able to outrun the wolves causing the canids to head into the village for easier meals.

Other villages have noticed an increase in wolf activity, including Selawik.

And while it’s nothing new to witness the predators near villages, the number of sightings has increased over the last couple years.<<<Read More>>>

Spain Dealing With Attacking Wolves, Threat Exists for Disease

What may not be getting to these people is the information and education of the great risk they may have from diseases spread readily by wild canines. With so many accounts of so many wolves near people’s homes and along the highway, diseases such as Echinococcus granulosus threaten the health of all people. Wolves infected with the tapeworm, will leave dangerous spores in their feces. People in the outdoors and in particular domestic dogs and other animals can easily get these eggs on their fur and transport them into the homes where children and adults can easily ingest them.

Wolves attacking livestock, human beings and destroying wild animals and game, is a completely different subject than dealing with the disease aspect of wolves.

Wolves in Avila, Spain attack calf in broad daylight beside the highway.

Original Spanish edition:

“Just listen to the roars of the animal, the two men ran across the road. But despite arriving in a few minutes, allowing them to see in person the wolf, and could do nothing to save the calf, which had been attacked by the hindquarters.”

English Translation edition:

Sheep attack and kill 11 sheep in Las Navas del Marqués, in the place El Saltillo, Spain. This is the 15th attack in 3 months.

Original Spanish edition:

“The Young Farmers Agricultural Association (Asaja) Avila has denounced a new wolf attack in the town of Las Navas del Marqués, in the place El Saltillo, which caused early Thursday in the deaths of eleven sheep and caused numerous abortions in the flock.”

Independent Review of Rule Proposal to Delist Wolves Nationally

The National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis was asked by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to review a proposal being made by the USFWS to remove the gray wolf from the Endangered Species Act list of protected animals. The link below will take readers to that 68-page report.

In short, the panel of so-called expert and independent scientists determined that the USFWS’s rule, “does not currently represent the ‘best available science’.”

While it may be that this report accurately describes the work of the USFWS in its proposed rule to delist wolves nationally, one has to wonder about the politics involved at every level. In my mind, I am highly skeptical about the overall plans of the USFWS and how they may be using this review for future purposes, some of which we know nothing about. Historically, the USFWS is notorious for manipulating “science” and utilizing court rulings to further their agenda, while taking advantage of their subsidiaries in wildlife crime, the environmental groups.

We will have to wait and see, I suppose, what kind of sinister effects this review will have on the management of gray wolves and other threatened or endangered species.

Here is the link to the review.

The Wolves Held Back the Deer

A friend and reader sent me some information found in a book called, “The History of the White-Tailed Deer in Maine.” Below are excerpts from that book about the deer herd in the State of Maine from as early as the 1700s. Readers might note a couple of things:

1.) In early settlement times, the deer were found almost exclusively along the coastline for a number of reasons. Twice in this writing it is mentioned that deer migrated inland with the expansion of the human population due, in part, by the reduction of the wolf population by the settlers.

2.) The deer would not and did not migrate inland as, “…the wolf still held back the deer from making important gains in those areas which were beginning to be opened up.”

Odd, isn’t it, that our history books are filled with accounts of how wolves dictated the scarcity of game and yet, today, this fact is denied by every environmentalist and their phoney organizations.
