Help Needed: Wolves Attack Horses in North Carolina

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service illegally introduced mongrel semi-wild dogs, calling them red wolves, into North Carolina. Now residents in that area are experiencing the terrible repercussions of a fascist government forcing people to “co-exist” with their pet project dogs.

The people who lost the horses need your help. Please help by clicking on this website.

Ranchers, don’t trust wolves to know ‘good’ from ‘bad’ 

*Editor’s Note* – The article linked-to below if pretty good. The lack of thinking and knowledge here, as expressed in the claim that there are good wolves and bad wolves and the good wolves are on “neighborhood crime watch” to keep the bad wolves from eating up livestock, is beyond foolish. It’s ignorant, heavily weighted down with perversion and a clear case of the result of propagandizing/brainwashing that exists at all levels of our society.

It reminds me of the same kind of claim, made by like non-thinkers, who say that wolves pick over the herd and take only the sick and lame of their prey species.

I, and several others, have contended for years that if wolves are that astute and discerning, why then do the promoters of such nonsense think this wolf intelligence only exists when it comes to determining sick and lame prey – supposedly an action that is good for the “ecosystem” and for “balance?”

We all know that wolves prefer the live fetuses of female elk. Yummy! Surely then, such brilliant animals, not only can pick out the pregnant female elk cows, but can also determine at what stage of development the fetus is that makes for the best eating.

How long before wolves evolve into understanding the inhumane treatment they have cast over prey species and begin opening up elk cafes just for wolves? Or better yet, a wolf vegan store? Maybe a place where wolves can serve up human flesh from those their friends have determined are wolf haters?

I’m sure most of us have seen the cartoon that shows two wolves hiding behind a rock, peeking out at a herd of sheep. One wolf says to the other, “Now remember. We only take the sick and lame ones.”

Now we can surely add another cartoon that shows another rock, with “good” wolves hiding behind it, reminding members of their pack that they are supposed to leave the sheep alone and run off the “bad” wolves. I suppose these adroit “good” wolves want to protect their reputations?

Have we regressed to a point that our intellect is below that of a wolf, or animals in general? It seems that a majority of people, at least in this country, choose to deal with any animal is by attaching human characteristics to them – and those human characteristics are only the ones that a person WANTS the animal to have. It’s nothing more than a perverse form of animal idealism.

Do wolves vote democratic?

I certainly hope my comments here this morning have not offended any wolves. However, I’m sure they can determine which writers prop up their political ideals and avoid the others. Or maybe they are even smarter than that.

Maybe another law?

A wolf pack that prefers elk will leave cattle alone and keep other wolf packs out. The same principle applies to coyotes, they said.

This theory sounds humane and progressive in the context of an air-conditioned meeting room at a fancy hotel in front of a group of people with no financial risk in the livestock industry. But to believe a livestock owner should trust that the good wolves and coyotes will protect their herds from the bad wolves and coyotes is beyond foolish.

Trying to tell a “good” wolf from a bad one is like looking into a box of chocolate-covered candy. You might pick the delicious caramel center, but then again, you might pick the slimy cherry.

Effects of Wolves and Other Predators on Farms in Wisconsin: Beyond Verified Losses

With the recolonization of gray wolves (Canis lupus) across the Western Great Lake States (Minnesota, Michigan, and Wisconsin) there has been a concomitant increase in livestock depredations caused by wolves (Mech 1998, Ruid et al. 2005, Treves et al. 2002, USDA 2006, Wydeven et al. 2006). Wolf populations in Wisconsin have grown from 25 in late winter 1980 to 465 in late winter 2006 with their range expanding both towards the east and south across the state. These wolf populations fluctuate during the year and perhaps double soon after pups are born in the spring, but decline to lower levels in fall and winter due to pup and adult mortalities. The official wolf count made at the end of winter thus represents the lowest number of wolves on the landscape in the annual cycle, and number of wolves that livestock could be exposed to would be higher during most of the year. With the growth of the wolf population there have been major increases in depredation on livestock, especially toward the later 1990s and into the 2000s (Treves et al 2002, Ruid et al. 2005, Wydeven et al. 2006). The majority of the livestock losses
have been calves with over a half a million dollars paid to livestock, hunters, and pet owners since 1985 (Jurewicz 2007 pers. comm.). It is also worth noting that research on risk perception suggest that people focus on maximal events, not average losses, and this helps explain why so many livestock producers are anxious and may consider costly measures despite low ‘average’ losses (Naughton-Treves 2003).

Traditionally assessments of the economic impact of livestock operations due to predators have focused on direct losses from predation. However, there have been concerns from livestock producers in this region about the economic impacts related to factors other than the direct losses of animals killed by wolves. The very threat of depredation by wolves on livestock can be stressful to farmers (Fritts et al. 2003). Shelton (2004) reported that livestock producers have increased costs associated with efforts to prevent predation which may include night confinement, improved fencing, early weaning, choice of grazing area, or increased feeding costs from a loss of grazing acreage.

Though there is not definitive research supporting the following, it is plausible that other impacts predators may have on livestock production include abortions from the stress of being harassed by predators, disease transmission, decreased weight gain from increased vigilance by livestock living near predators, potential reduction in meat quality from stress, and emotional stress placed on livestock producers concerned about
depredations.

In the remainder of this report we explore the effects of wolf and other predators on farms. We examine the literature for these effects on livestock and other aspects of the farms. We also discuss relevant anecdotal information on the effects of wolf and predator presence on farms. Lastly, recommendations for future research to measure the effects of wolf presence on farms and how such data should be used in managing wolf populations and livestock are shared.<<<Read Entire Report>>>

Feds Start Killing Wolves Killing Livestock
