Wolf? Hybrid? Dog? Does Anybody Care?

I was sent a series of 7 photographs under the heading of “Swimming Wolf.” I will not show all 7 pictures. I will show two of the originals – a canine creature swimming a body of water, and the same canine after it got across to the land and was headed in a direction that took it across what appears to be a road.

The last photo was returned to everyone included on the original email list, with graphics showing differences between a wolf track and those of a dog.

If you follow this link to Wolf Education International, you’ll find an article written in both German and English with links to photos and graphics with details about how to determine, from a well-defined track, the differences between the track of a wolf, the track of a hybrid/crossbreed, and the track of a dog.

The real crime here is that we either a clueless as to what kind of animals we are protecting, or those perpetuating this act know exactly what they are doing and are doing it for political or other reasons. Either way, none of it is actually saving or protecting the actual wolf.

It appears most simply want wild dogs and then in their wee bit of a mind they can believe they are one with “wolves.”

Farmer: Coyote attack kills five steers near Birnamwood 

*Editor’s Comment* – A common expression many of us often hear when we are relaying stupidity: “You can’t make this stuff up.” I used to believe that but no longer. It is “made up,” in one sense of its meaning. The stupidity, actually ignorance, is made up. It’s created by man and promoted by man – men blind with ignorance and bred to never question.

Now we have a story of a “pack of coyotes” killing five steers in Wisconsin and it is believed to be fact. Because it was not a “protected” predator, i.e. wolf, no compensation will come to the owner of the livestock.

But here’s the deal. The United States has become an animal perverted society. By that I mean, everyone loves animals more than humans. Everyone has a dog, or six, that they live with, sleep with, cuddle with, eat with, are intimate with, are cared for better than humans, etc. In these people’s tiny, mentally ill minds, all animals are fun and cute and must be protected. Dogs seem to be at the root of the perversion.

Dogs are dogs and any dog, presented with the right set of circumstances – the circumstances of which are easy to create – will copulate with another dog. It matters not whether that dog is feral or domestic, wolf or coyote, wolf or domestic dog, coyote or domestic dog, the act happens. And, the act is happening more and more the more that the perverted citizens of this country continue to think all of these canines are cute and cuddly and need protecting.

It has become so bad, the ignorance and blind perversion that is, that I saw a photograph recently that someone claimed to have taken that showed it to be a “wolf.” The “wolf” was a mongrel with obvious white poodle genes. (This is another example of “made-up” intelligence.)

So long as the perverts want to continue to protect all animals, and in this case all “puppies” then they should be required to pay for their perversion.  Any dog, it matters not what year, make or model, tame or wild, that causes damage to anyone for any reason, that person will be compensated in an equitable manner. Licensing of dogs should cost no less that $250.00 per animal to cover the property loss and destruction. This will be adjusted up or down as the need calls.

Where any animal that resembles a dog can be a wolf, no animal the resembles a wolf can be a wolf if it does something bad. These perverts want to protect doggies then let them pay for it. If the price tag gets high enough, maybe they will think…..there I go again thinking they would think.

A coyote attack killed five Black Angus yearling steers, but the farmers who own them said Wednesday they worry wolves could have been involved.

Using VooDoo to Justify Screw-ups With Illegal “Wolf” Introduction

*Editor’s Note* – This is mostly just nonsense…BS actually. Even the concept is foolishness and the lack of intelligent reasoning is void. The idea that there could actually be any kind of “control” over an experiment, even of this size, to have any concept of what is taking is place, is bunk.

First, there is no such thing as a “pure” red wolf. (As a matter of fact, by scientific definition, there is no such thing as a “pure” wolf, or coyote. We just dumb down the requirements for the money.) Most scientists believe the red wolf is nothing more than a cross-bred wild dog. Even the canine animals the Feds “introduced” were half-tame, mixed-bred, dogs. The nonsense is the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is spending millions and millions of dollars attempting to illegally dump mongrel, semi-wild dogs into North Carolina, calling them red wolves and hiding behind the dysfunctional Endangered Species Act claiming they (USFWS) is required by law to “recover” the red wolf.

The latest science on coyotes, wolves, cross-breeds and hybridization shows the impossibility to protect separate species (if in fact any of them are) from cross breeding because there are too many of the beasts to begin with. With millions of coyotes/cross-breeds and tens of thousands of “wolves” (cross-breeds) the more they grow and are protected the more it is impossible to separate species regardless of how many thousands of “placeholder” coyotes are introduced. (Notice the misleading title placed on sterilized coyotes.) One would think that the Environmentalist would be fighting to actually ensure fewer canines in order to preserve the gene, but they are not. Instead, they are hinting toward continued protection and dealing with the result, naming it a new species. Is that science or politics?

Presenting some fanciful, non-workable, ridiculous notion that cross breeding can be prevented by sterilizing coyotes and placing them between packs of viable wolves and coyotes is about as smart as putting up a fence on the Mexican border thinking it will stop illegal immigration.

It is my opinion that this experiment is nothing more than a means of distracting and somehow substantiating the disaster the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service created in North Carolina. Now that they have screwed everything up in a really bad way – bad for the people/property owners and bad for the wildlife – the USFWS is going to attempt to legitimize their incompetency.

In response to this announcement, Dr. Valerius Geist commented, “Grasping for straws! And what a muddle to begin with. How much manpower will be required to keep track of “placeholders” and mating pairs? One biologist per red-wolf breeding pair? and are red wolves actually wolves?”

This nonsense deserves the “Golden Horse Excrement Award.”

One of the most endangered species is the red wolf, Canis rufus. Reintroduction of the red wolf began in 1987, but in 1993 hybridization between coyotes (Canis latrans) and wolves was documented. To reduce genetic introgression, coyotes and coyote–wolf hybrids were captured, sterilized, and released as “placeholders”. Placeholders held territories until either displaced or killed by a wolf, or management personnel removed them before releasing a wolf. We evaluated the placeholder concept by examining the number of animals sterilized and released, likelihood of displacement by a wolf, factors influencing displacements, territory fidelity of placeholders, and survival rates and causes of mortality of placeholders and wolves. Of the 182 placeholders, 125 were coyotes and 57 were hybrids. From 1999 to 2013, 51 placeholders were displaced or killed by wolves, and 16 were removed by management personnel. Thus, 37% of the placeholders were displaced leading to occupancy by a wolf. Most displacements occurred in winter (43%) and were always by the same sex. Males were more likely to be displaced than females. Home range characteristics influencing the probability of displacement included home-range size (i.e., more placeholders displaced from larger home ranges) and road density (i.e., more placeholders displaced from home ranges with lower road density). Annual survival of placeholders was higher than wolves in 12 of 14 years, with cause-specific mortality similar among wolves and placeholders. Placeholders provided territories for wolves to colonize, yet reduced the production of hybrid litters, thereby limiting genetic introgression to < 4% coyote ancestry in the wolf population.

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 prey in some areas. We used a combination of GPS telemetry, genetic analysis, and field investigation to test the hypothesis that eastern coyotes and coyote × wolf hybrids are capable of preying on adult moose in central Ontario. Our hypothesis was supported, as we documented four definitive cases of eastern coyotes and (or) eastern coyote × eastern wolf hybrids killing moose ?1.5 years old. Predation by coyotes and coyote × wolf hybrids probably does not represent a threat to moose population viability in central Ontario, but our results suggest that researchers and managers in other areas with declining moose populations that are sympatric with eastern coyotes and (or) coyote × wolf hybrids should consider coyote predation as a potential source of mortality.<<<Read the full Study>>>

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 speaking, a coywolf is the informal term for a hybrid descended from coyotes and a gray, Eastern or red wolf.

“We’ve had at least one case where it was pretty definitivel

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 dingoes, European grey wolves and Ethiopian wolves.

Defining Hybrids as Species is Political

*Editor’s Note* – For much the same reasons as the Ruling Establishment wants to outlaw opposing science that shows man-caused Climate Change is fake, politics will get us in a world of trouble by assigning specie designation to cross-bred wild and domestic canines.

In the article linked below, it clearly spells out that the purpose for wanting to assign a species to “hybrid” animals is so that they can be categorized for threatened or endangered animals – assuming that actually means for purposes of administering the Endangered Species Act. That’s where the money is.

Instead of dealing with the facts and reasons as to why we are seeing so much cross breeding among canines – an actual threat to species such as wolves and coyotes – evidently there must be more money in placing a label on a wild, mongrel dog and declaring it an endangered species.

“We infer from that pattern that a greater proportion of wolf DNA in any individual makes that individual more capable of exploiting that resource, in this case a whitetail deer,” Monzon said.

Genetic findings aside, Monzon agreed with Rutledge that defining hybrids as species is important for conservation. He said he expects more hybrids will be discovered as climate change shifts the ranges of different species, causing them to overlap.

Wolf Perverts Will Call Anything Dog-Like a Wolf

*Editor’s Note* – The link below takes readers to an article that claims that someone has captured new “wolf cubs” on camera in Switzerland. Realizing the difficulty, usually, of identifying what is commonly referred to as “pure wolves” and the differences of mixed breeds, my first inclination was that this was a picture of mongrel dogs, perhaps representing a mixed German Shepard, not wolves.

I consulted with a wolf expert in Finland, expert in wolf DNA analysis and identification who said, “These guys are almost pure dogs, rather German Shepherds than wolves. Wolves do not exhibit this kind of color variations during their first year. Wolves’ first pelt is relatively monotone. When they shed their first winter pelt, the wolfish color settings become more expressed.”

The misled desire for people to want to see and have wolves to look at in the wild, have blinded them so badly, any wild dog is considered a wolf. Aside from the perversion that comes with wolf worship, the chosen blindness of the followers are contributing to the demise of actual wolves. Forcing mixed breed canines and actual wolves together, will lead only to further cross-breeding and a destruction of the species – even creating a cross-bred dog species that is more dangerous to people and to livestock.

What will it take to get people to understand?

Wolves/Coyotes/Hybrids: What You Talking About?

In testimony before the Maine Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Committee, president and founder of the Maine Wolf Coalition stated that Maine could not legally allow the hunting of coyotes, because the coyote is not a coyote. LD 691 is a proposed bill that would allow for hunting the coyote on Sundays. Maine bans all hunting on Sunday.

John Glowa’s testimony is interesting and reveals, not only his lack of knowledge about wolves, coyotes, hybrids, cross-breeding, DNA, and all associated aspects of this subject, but it also helps to open debate on the real problems we face in dealing with protection of a species for the good of the species and protection of the species for political gain.

The president of the Maine Wolf Coalition gets confused in stating that a coyote is not a coyote because it’s a hybrid and attempts to convince the IFW Committee that there is some magical “statutory” definition, that when applied, renders any coyote hunting illegal. By definition, the wild canines running the Maine woods are the result of cross-breeding and not a planned out hybridization in order to create a mixed breed of wild dog.

A dog is a dog is a dog and when practical, all dogs, regardless of subspecie designation, will interbreed. To assist in the preservation of wild dog subspecies, efforts should be made to keep these subspecies geographically separated as much as possible. This is usually done by limiting populations and not by protecting them at every turn and allowing them to grow unchecked, while thinking that coyotes/wolves are necessary for a healthy forest dwelling and that Nature balances itself. This is romantic nonsense that destroys animal species.

It is a bit spurious that arguments, such as the testimony given to the IFW Committee, claim, in order to, at this moment in time, protect coyotes, put forth the claim that a coyote isn’t a coyote because it has wolf genes in it. On another day, the same committee might hear from the same group that any wild dog that has wolf genes in it is a wolf and must be protected.

Protecting wild dogs, and introducing wild dogs into human-settled landscapes, may be the quickest way I know of to destroy the subspecies. With increased overlapping of wild dog subspecies, all wild dogs, i.e. all subspecies of wolves, coyotes, released domestic dogs, released wolf-dog hybrids and domestic dogs, will, over time, and due to protection, become just a mongrel, cross-bred mutt.

Is this acceptable while Environmentalism works to end hunting and trapping?

It’s what’s for lunch.
