Perfectly legal to kill an animal in the defense of life or property in this State. Sad story for this young woman was she was a relatively new arrival to Alaska, and was involved with the educational system (may have been a school teacher). She was an active athletic type and was out walking jogging to get some excercise. She was probably told the bears were all in hibernation and didn't feel the need to be packing a firearm in the middle of winter. It would be fair to say she wasn't a seasoned Alaskan with experience in the wilds of Alaska. Had been in Alaska for less than one year and was in a foreign local and environment.

I'm almost always packing a firearm when I'm out and about. It doesn't happen frequently even with bears, but all it takes to end a life is one unlucky incident. I've bumped into brown bears in my own yard on more than one occasion. Been stalked by a black bear in the mountains while hunting black bear. Easiest bear ever. He snuck up on me from downwind while I was sleeping. Pasted him at 20 feet with 7mm Rem Mag & 160 gr Nosler Accubond while he was staring me down. One shot corrected that bears attitude. Good thing PETA wasn't there - I'd have been lynched.

I may be taking this the wrong way, so I'll give this post enough respect to ask the question(s); What is your point? 1) That the life of a human killing wolf deserves value and respect equivalent to a human? Or 2) That human killing drunk drivers should be shot & killed in common with human killing wolves?

Re: wolf attack

phorwath, i may do that...

BB,I am not in any way insinuating that there is a wolf/people problem here that is going to get out of hand. As far as i am concerned, anyone who hikes/jogs in remote areas such as this with no concern for their safety deserves just what she got. One of the parents were interveiwed and stated that "she would not want the wolves killed" so i guess she took her chances and died for her efforts.

My concern for the wolf and the idiocy of transplanting them back into portions of the country where we have worked for a hundred yrs to get rid of the damn things is the fact that they are decimating our game herds. All the touchy feely wolf huggers out there should be made to witness the taking down of an elk and eating it while it is still alive, or better yet just eating the tounge and leaving the rest.

Make no mistake about why the huggers have done this. Now that we have the worlds best predator doing our killing for us, there is now no need for hunting as a game management tool. AJ

man you Alaskins must be tough Bumped into a brown bear while in your own yard , I would hate to be mowing the lawn round the corner of the wood shed and their stands something that thinks I would make a good snack Oh well then again you wouldn't have to go far to hunt....

maybe someone will start a Thread/ poll about dangerous encounters in the wild...
