Perverted Environmentalists Sue Over Wolf Hunts Where No Wolves Were Harmed

*Editor’s Note* – I told you so! If it wasn’t for the fact that the greatest interest of the Environmentalists is making money, one would have to wonder what all the fuss is about. An Idaho sportsman’s organization held two wolf hunting derbies for two consecutive years and manage to kill no wolves. Yet, insane and […]

RMEF Praises Oregon Wolf Delisting

*Editor’s Note* – The state of Oregon opting to remove the gray wolf from state protection under the state’s endangered species program, is a first step that essentially only allows for more flexibility in protecting livestock. This is not a bad thing. What is bad is that the continued direction the state is headed, will […]

So-Called “Wolf Scientists” Support Delisting of Wolves in Great Lakes

*Editor’s Note* – One cannot help but be skeptical of the what is really going on with the list of those supposedly showing support for the delisting of gray wolves in the Western Great Lakes region. Historically, there is little reason to believe there are not sinister motives at play here. All should proceed with […]

Coyote and Coyote Wolf Cross-Breeds Attack and Kill Moose

Abstract: It has been widely assumed that coyotes (Canis latrans Say, 1823) are incapable of killing adult moose (Alces alces (L., 1758)) and previous studies of coyote predation support this assumption. However, eastern coyotes and eastern coyote × eastern wolf (Canis lycaon Schreber, 1775) are larger than western coyotes and appear to rely on larger […]

Three Questions About the Ethics of Wildlife Management

*Editor’s Note* – The below opinion piece is a classic example of ignorance as it pertains to wildlife management. That ignorance is driven by emotional nonsense of “ethics,” and “values.” The author claims that the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW) manages wildlife from the perspective of “the end justifies the means.” He […]

Echinococcus multilocularis Echinococcus granulosus in the Baltics

ABSTRACT: In the Baltic countries, the two zoonotic diseases, alveolar echinococcosis (AE) caused by Echinococcus multilocularis, and cystic echinococcosis (CE) caused by Echinococcus granulosus, are of increasing public health concern. Observations from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania indicate thatthe distribution of both parasites is wider in the Baltics than previously expected. In this paper, we review […]

Researchers question possible “coyote type of wolf-dog hybrid” roaming around Wauwatosa

*Editor’s Comment* – Science (cough, cough) has shown that there exists some kind of mongrel mutt in many parts of the East and Northeast. What I’ve come to conclude in reading reports of “wild dog” sightings worldwide, is that many observers are delusional and wouldn’t know the difference between a wolf and a poodle (and […]

State says coywolves are no myth

“They certainly are in Vermont,” said Louis Porter, commissioner for the Vermont Department of Fish & Wildlife. “There’s a continuum of canid (a mammal from the dog family) species that go all the way from coyotes to Eastern wolves. Any individual (animal) can fall on that continuum depending on what their genetic makeup is.” Technically […]

Is this coyote-wolf hybrid taking over North America?

And this sort of mixing occurs beyond the northeastern US. Coyotes, Mexican wolves and red wolves are known to interbreed in Texas. In North Carolina, coyotes mix with grey wolves, red wolves and domestic dogs. Eastern wolves pass genes between coyotes and western wolves by breeding with both in eastern Canada. Meanwhile, domestic dog genes pop up in Australian […]
