Re: wolf attack

Yes, when it's within the means and ability of the State agencies, they will generally try to kill any human killing bear. However that's often harder done than said.

The Trooper gave every indication that there would be an effort to kill some local wolves. I know how I'd go about it, but whether or not they can proceed with a bait pile at the kill location or not politically - I can't say. I wouldn't be surprised but what some of the locals decide to go wolf hunting, and I suspect the authorities will be unconcerned over petty violations of normal hunting/trapping regulations.

If I were living in Chignik Bay, I would be very concerned about a repeat occurrence until the responsible wolf pack is taken out. I have no reason to expect these wolves wouldn't repeat with a kill of another vulnerable person, given the equivalent opportunity. They are very efficient killers once they target and focus in on their prey. That's how they survive. Rarely are humans the target of their attacks. This is the first documented wolf kill of a human in Alaska's history. But now that they've killed once, I'd bet my next paycheck they would do so again, given an equal opportunity.

    i hate to say it but this may be what it takes to happen before the idiots in montana, idaho, and wyoming get their heads out of their asses and start controlling the wolves there. there is a reason the people who settled this land waged war on wolves.....
    i know there were some guys on here that had wolf tags this winter, did anyone ever get one? AJ

    People are attacked and killed by grizzlies but they are still protected. i don't see it being much different with wolves. i hope it doesn't come down to that, but if wolves are allowed to run free without fear of man, I think tragedies are inevitable.

    My dad was attacked by a MTN lion in Colorado while Elk hunting several years ago . I was directly across from my dad on the opposite side of a canyon . I remember it like it was yesterday It wasn't even close to legal shooting light when I heard a gun shot I thought to myself what kind of idiot is shooting in the dark . So, I then called my dad with the radio and when his voice came on I could tell he was shook up bad talking 90 MPH he said I just shot a MTN Lion . He had set up in a pile of rocks he didn't realize until it was daylight that he had sat down on a game trail as he was setting their he noticed something flicker so he looked even closer picked up his mag light and switched it on bam their stands a MTN lion very very close you may ask how close? well when my dad flipped the light on the MTN lion hunkered down dad had very little time to react but lifted his 7mm mag up with one hand and shot from the hip with the maglight in the other hand he just pointed the rifle and hit the MTN Lion right in the center of it's chest. It had to be close to do that no more than 20 feet max , we believe the MTN Lion was sneaking up on my dad . We were later told that you can shoot an animal if you are threatened is this true? If it is true couldn't the residents carry a pistol while walking and jogging and if threatened shoot the wolfe's legally?

    dogdinger,

    You ought to change the title of your thread to draw proper attention to this incident. Like the title 'Wolves Kill Woman in Alaska'.

    Current U.S. human population estimates.

    Quote:
    U.S. 308,854,796

    22:25 UTC (EST+5) Mar 12, 2010
    Number of people killed by wolves = 1

    Number of people kill by drunk driving = 13,846


    Perhaps we should go and shoot all of the people who drink and drive.
