I posted this on the wolf thread, but I think it's unique enough to have it's own thread.
Supposedly she used pepper spray on the first one she encountered, and another one appeared.  Someone has commented she was doing research with regards to a grazing allotment.  I'll update this with better info when it comes in.

just can't wait to read the comments when the Seattle Times runs the story. dizzy.gif

no doubt somebody will figure out a way to exceed the stupidity of the antics earlier today in Washington DC.

Guess she learned where the term “Wolfpack” came from. 🙀

This is too close to home.  But they never attack people so we are told.... rolleyes.gif

What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be human––animals and aliens are great possibilities

You are so bright to raise alarm. There was a fatal wolf attack in the US in 1900. You remember that don't you?

If you're worried about wolves, there's something sorta similar that is far more likely to attack you.  But go ahead and carry on with the fear mongering and hyperbole.

You bet I'm going to believe the fear mongering.  Wolves are similar to dogs and I expect will act like dogs.  There just aren't enough of them yet to make an impact.  It's easy for you to poke fun when you live across a mountain range from the problem.  Convince me that my dog won't be killed should we stumble into a pack territory. 

Can't wait till grizzlies are dumped here.   rolleyes.gif

I would not be surprised if the FS just closes down the area of the incident.

Annnnnd we're off!!!!
Stupidity has the lead so far but "liberal bias" is nipping at is heals (pardon the pun).

To summarize up to this point,

1. Why can't we annihilate anything that might hurt me or my pets?

2. Why can't we return to the old days when everything was in perfect balance?

FLAME ON!

speaking of stupidity....

okay, here you go...  no comments yet, but they're sure to start appearing soon:

wolves chase woman up a tree story in the Seattle Times July 13, 2018 at 7:16 am

curiously, this one tags the location as Loomis - that's quite a ways from the other places mentioned in the other articles.

Most of those attacks are by the family dog.   So I guess you're most likely to be attacked by the family wolf or bear than a wild one?

Were the wolves behaving aggressively or did she just freak out because wolves were near?  Articles are a bit scant on details.

I don't see anywhere in those articles that the wolves "chased" the researcher up a tree or were aggressive.
