An Unorthodox Strategy to Stop Cars From Hitting Deer. Try wolves Wolves tend to prowl along human-made corridors such as trails and roads. By killing deer near these areas, or simply intimidating them into staying away, wolves could keep the animals far from cars. By analyzing 22 years of data, Raynor and her colleagues found that Wisconsin’s wolves have reduced the frequency of deer-vehicle collisions by a quarter. They save the state $10.9 million in losses every year—a figure 63 times greater than the total compensation paid for the loss of livestock or pets. https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2021/05/wolves-reduce-deer-vehicle-collisions/618978/
More rigorous “science” from the caring overlords. 😂

Camper shoots, injures Idaho family’s dog after mistaking her for a wolf Rob Kolb and his 16-year-old daughter, Piper, were backpacking at North Fork Lake in the Boulder Mountains with their Alaskan malamute, Suki, when the dog wandered to a nearby campsite. A camper there believed Suki was a wolf and fired three bullets from a handgun, striking the dog in the head and neck. https://www.seattletimes.com/nation-world/camper-shoots-injures-idaho-familys-dog-after-mistaking-her-for-a-wolf/

Tuesday February 22, 2022 13:18 PST WDFW NEWS RELEASE WDFW seeks public comment on proposed rule changes to address wolf-livestock conflict deterrence OLYMPIA- The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) invites the public to submit written comment from Feb. 22 to April 11, 2022 on a proposed rule change and a new rule to address wolf-livestock conflict deterrence. In September 2020, Governor Jay Inslee directed WDFW to initiate rule making with the goal of instituting practices that would reduce the number of livestock killed or injured by wolves as well as the number of wolves lethally removed as a result of depredations of domestic animals. The proposed rule change, if adopted, would amend the language of Washington Administrative Code (WAC) 220-440-080 (https://app.leg.wa.gov/wac/default.aspx?cite=220-440-080#:~:text=(1)%20An%20owner%20of%20domestic,is%20attacking%20their%20domestic%20animals ) to require that, to authorize lethal removal of wolves, the WDFW director (or WDFW staff designee) would need to confirm an owner of domestic animals has proactively implemented appropriate non-lethal conflict deterrence measures. The proposal, if adopted, would also create a new rule (WAC 220-440-260) that directs WDFW staff, in consultation with willing, affected livestock producers, as well as affected federal, state, and tribal agencies, to author conflict mitigation plans that would establish area-specific criteria for the use of non-lethal and lethal measures to mitigate wolf-livestock conflict in areas of chronic conflict. “If adopted, the proposed change to WAC 220-440-080 would align the code with the agency’s long-standing commitment to non-lethal conflict mitigation strategies,” said Wolf Policy Lead Julia Smith. “The proposal creating WAC 220-440-260 aims to address areas that have experienced significant levels of livestock depredation and subsequent wolf removals year after year, an especially difficult scenario for all communities concerned about wolf conservation and management. This proposal focuses limited time and resources to areas where the most livestock and wolf loss has occurred in the state.” In addition, a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (DSEIS) ( https://wdfw.wa.gov/publications/02312 ) that analyzes the environmental impacts of four alternative rule making options and a Small Business Economic Impact Statement (SBEIS) ( https://wdfw.wa.gov/publications/02311 ) that evaluates the potential costs to businesses in the livestock industry resulting from the proposed rule and rule change were developed as part of the rule making process. During this public comment period, WDFW is looking for input on the draft proposed language for both WACs, as well as feedback on the DSEIS. Please use this link ( https://publicinput.com/U0420#0 ) to review the rule change materials and share feedback on the proposed rule language. Written comments can also be submitted via email to WolfConflictDeterrence102@PublicInput.com, or members of the public can call 855-925-2801 (enter project code 3861) to record their input. Please use this link to review the SEPA materials ( https://publicinput.com/SEPAWolfConflictDeterrence ) and share feedback on the DSEIS. Written comments can also be submitted via email to SEPAWolfConflictDeterrence@PublicInput.com, or members of the public can call 855-925-2801 (enter project code 6659) to record their input. A Public Hearing is expected to be scheduled for April 2022. The final SEIS is planned to be issued in May and the Fish and Wildlife Commission ( https://wdfw.wa.gov/about/commission ) will consider the proposal in May of 2022. The rule and/or rule changes that may result from this process are proposed to be effective in January 2023. Visit the Department’s website ( https://wdfw.wa.gov/about/regulations/development/wolf-livestock-conflict-deterrence ) for more information on the proposed rule and the rule-change process. More information on wolves in Washington can be found at https://wdfw.wa.gov/species-habitats/at-risk/species-recovery/gray-wolf. All members of the public are invited to share their perspectives and participate in WDFW public feedback opportunities regardless of race, color, sex, age, national origin, language proficiency, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, status as a veteran, or basis of disability. WDFW works to preserve, protect, and perpetuate fish, wildlife, and ecosystems while providing sustainable fish and wildlife recreational and commercial opportunities. - WDFW -

As was stated by a wise Indian. Wolves are like the white man, they kill everything, then kill each other then nothing is left.

I just heard that on the show 1883 streaming on Paramount...but is that really true? Maybe in modern times, but back when it was mainly Native Americans in this country I would think the wolves would have had an endless supply of meat.

Go placidly amid the noise and waste, and remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof.

Things were definitely a lot different when 60 million bison were roaming the west.
