and run as fast as they can to avoid us.

Wolfs on the other hand see us as an easy meal and when the tree hugger realizes this
we will all be better off .

Common sense tells most hunters that when they are in an area that has Bear.mountain lions,
Hogs, Wolves and other predators to man they should have some sort of protection.

Anyone with good sense won't go into a ghetto at night buy themselves or with out protection
because they know there are predators there and what the outcome could be.

Just my opinion.

Good point to keep in mind in discussions. I think much of our culture is just in a 'Bambi' mindframe when it comes to wildlife. Are these wildlife situations rare? Yes. But, it's also rare for me to go into the 'ghetto'.

JE,
Not to cause any squabble, but there was a documented & confirmed coyote killing of a 19-year old woman in Canada in October, 2009. Two coyotes got credit for taking the woman down. The incident occured in a Canadian National Park where hunting was not allowed. Below are two links to new articles reporting on the incident.

My opinion is the National Parks, Preserves, or any other land management areas where hunting is prohibited creates the greatest risk of predation kills on humans. The bold predators typically get taken out during hunting seasons where hunting is legal. After a generation or two of protection, a few of these predators get bolder and bolder around humans concluding in an attack or killing. I've seen it happen with brown bears here where I live. Mother bears train their cubs that hanging around humans is OK. Those cubs teach their cubs. Then someone gets attacked or killed, just like clockwork.

Update: Here are two links to news articles reporting on this coyote attack and kill of the 19-year old singer in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park in Nova Scotia, Canada. October, 2009.

Re: Wolves Kill Woman in Alaska

I was in western PA a couple of weeks ago. My brother who hunts coyotes with dogs says that the PA variety of yote is larger than the western variety do to some wolf influence????

phorwath's note of 2 coyotes killing humans makes the total that I'm aware of 3......

Hmmmmm

Just another reason to 'carry'.....

I just heard on the local news (radio) they sent a helicopter out with shooters this morning to eliminate the pack but it was hampered by weather.

Re: Wolves Kill Woman in Alaska

Number of people killed by wolves = 1

Number of people kill by drunk driving = 13,846

Thanks for the facts Buffalobob. I didn't take from your post that we should shoot all the DUI's responsible but rather it caused me to put things in perspective. For me I realized I spent more time reading what everyone had to say about a death attributed to a predator/s who's only doing what's natural and zero amount of time in my entire life doing anything about deaths attributed to DIU's by irresponsible, give a s&^t well fed humans. By the way since it's now approxiamitly 36 hours since your post the DUI death count is now gone up roughly 2 per hour so.

Number of people killed by wolves = still 1

Number of people kill by drunk driving = 13,846 + 72 =13,918

Re: Wolves Kill Woman in Alaska

The single largest threat to the future of hunting as we know it is found at this link

US & World Population Clock

There are three kinds of people - hunters, anti hunters and the don't care.

The don't care portion increases daily and out numbers the other two kinds.

You can polarize the don't care people into anti hunters by SSS behavior or by things like this.

Coyote/Deer dumped in river

One other thing about the population issue is that all of those people require space. Where do you think they are going to live shop and go to school. Down in the flat lands which to big game biologists is known as winter range.

Game populations are at an all time high by artificial management such as can be found on the Utah DNR website and their response to the hunter survey on elk. Artificial manipulation of the gene pool produces Perdue chickens and herefords and it is being used on game animals for the satisfaction of hunters but the wolves are going to put a monkey wrench into that artificial management. So there is a faction of the hunters who are upset because the elk are going to be smaller, faster and spookier in a few generations under natural selection management by the wolves. And the human predator/interactions will increase in frequency.
