In about 10-15 years you will see the same numbers we have in SW Montana. They breed. My condolences.

Re: Kentucky Gray Wolf Killed

I lived near Boise in 07 -08 and hunted coyotes in the SW corner of the state Owyhee desert area.
Crossed paths with a few old ranchers over time and told them about hearing wolves howl one night while camping.
They said wolves have always been there -same story with people who live up in the Mountains.
The story that there were NO WOLVES was a lie from the get-go.
It took some people a long time to figure out why the wolves were planted there in big numbers.
In another conversation I said there were most probably wolves in California -for sure Nevada -Oregon and Washington-again I got some odd looks.
I measured on a map from the SW corner of Idaho to the NW corner of California on Google Earth -about 160 miles.

There was a wolf from the Boise pack killed by a car south of Pendleton, Oregon ten years ago.

I found some huge canine tracks in dry dirt in SW Idaho while hunting once -a 25-06 w/a 115 NBT cartridge was about half the length of the track.

A wolf in KY. doesn't surprise me at all -one could get on an old railroad track and be there in no time .

Re: Kentucky Gray Wolf Killed

Hey guys, hate to drag up an old post but this "earthfirst" post was mostly plagiarized from the KY F/W web site EXCEPT the paragraph that said it was probably a formally CAPTIVE wolf.

"Great Lakes Region wolf biologists said the animal's dental characteristics - a large amount of plaque on its teeth - suggest it may have spent some time in captivity. A largely carnivorous diet requiring the crushing of bone as they eat produces much less plaque on the teeth of wild wolves. "

Federal officials confirm gray wolf taken in Kentucky

Just had to clear the air. May have been a pet, a private "zoo" item or something else that was either turned out, or broke free.
