I live in the Southern Missouri Ozarks on a dead end forest service road, way back in the woods. This past year my wife and I have heard wolf howles. No doubt about it, not coyotes for sure. About once a month the deer stop coming around and our outside dogs will not come out of their house for a few days, I guess they know the wolves are passing through. My Uncle lives about 20 miles from us and he said he saw one. Earlier this spring there was a deer kill sight on the lane to our house, blood over a large area. The deer was torn apart, there were a few strips of hide about 2'' wide and a foot long and one hind leg from the knee down also the stomach contents only was left at the kill seen. Nothing else. I followed the blood trail which was a drag trail and it just went away. I never found a carcass at all even watching for buzzards and crows. There were no tracks due to being gravel and grass. I called the local State Conservation Agent ( Game Warden) and he came out and brought with him the area biolegest . They acted like I was stupid to even think it could be wolves. I guess the kill could have been a couger which they admit we have but I never found the body covered with leaves or in a tree that comes with a cat kill. What do ya'll think, am I nuts to think we have wolves moving in? I'm also not the best speller or typest.
