Grizzly bears, black bears, wolves, coyotes, cougars/ mountain lions,bobcats, wolverines, lynx, foxes, fishers and martens are the suite of carnivores that originally inhabited North America after the Pleistocene extinctions. This site invites research, commentary, point/counterpoint on that suite of native animals (predator and prey) that inhabited The Americas circa 1500-at the initial point of European exploration and subsequent colonization. Landscape ecology, journal accounts of explorers and frontiersmen, genetic evaluations of museum animals, peer reviewed 20th and 21st century research on various aspects of our "Wild America" as well as subjective commentary from expert and layman alike. All of the above being revealed and discussed with the underlying goal of one day seeing our Continent rewilded.....Where big enough swaths of open space exist with connective corridors to other large forest, meadow, mountain, valley, prairie, desert and chaparral wildlands.....Thereby enabling all of our historic fauna, including man, to live in a sustainable and healthy environment. - Blogger Rick

One of our Blog readers has a knack for parody and outright sarcasm as it relates to the State Of Idaho seemingly consumed with the need to kill as many Wolves as they possibly can................Does anyone do any legitimate work in Idaho?..............Does anyone bother to read in Idaho?.......................You would think that you are watching a Science Fiction film about invaders from Mars when you read the daily diatribe against Wolves that is published, broadcast and "tabletop talked" at saloons and taverns across this State on a daily basis..................To be fair, Americans of all stripes have certain concerns about living wild animals in their midst,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,But just as fair, many of these same Americans are at least willing to open their minds a bit about co-existence with "The Creator's" other carniverous creatures ......................The movie NOAH, starring Russell Crowe is coming out in a few weeks,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,If there is a God or Gods or a Force that is responsible for all living things on this Planet(for each of us to have our own thoughts and beliefs yea and nea on this matter), "he, she or it" seems to have wanted all of life's creation to "spread their wings, multiply and take their rightful place in the circle of life................Biodiversity with the creatures that bite, sting, growl and roar were allowed on Noah's Ark just like those creatures that mewed, purred and neighed,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,WAKE UP FELLOW IDAHO NEIGHBORS,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,AND ALL OF YOU OTHER AMERICANS WHO ARE SO QUICK TO KILL BABY KILL WHEN IT COMES TO DEALING WITH CARNIVORES IN OUR MIDST....................The Wolves, Pumas, Bears, Coyotes, Wolverines, Foxes, Alligators, Sharks, et al. merit their place alongside us..........If we want the most robust gene pool and "planet potential positive" conditions for ourselves and future generations, then we do need to retain and nurture all of the "cogs and wheels", not just those we want to hunt, eat, pet or farm..............Thank you Annonymous Blog Reader for your "tongue-in-cheek" take on our Wolf crazed Idaho neighbors------May they(and all of us) wake up and embrace all of life around us,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,REMEMBER, ONCE AN ORGANISM IS GONE, IT IS GONE AND WE NEVER CAN BRING EM BACK--WE HAVE EXTERMINATED TOO MANY OF CREATURES ALREADY---NO MORE CARNAGE!

 Long Range Tactical hunters join State and Federal officials in hunt for killer wolf in Sun Valley

 OK folks. I still have tears running down my cheeks - not from crying but from laughing so hard. I see that Idaho For Wildlife have sent in Delta Force hunters to take out wolves west of Hailey, Idaho.

You see in Idaho hunters are not just run of the mill hunters. Our Idaho hunters, especially those who belong to anti-wolf groups like Idaho For Wildlife or Save Western Wildlife, are known as, now here goes, Long Range Tactical Hunters.
Yes, because this wolf is so aggressive as to have killed a "baby horse" and attacked two dogs, we have some of Idaho elite hunters after the wolf NOT TO MENTION, Wildlife Services in an airplane circling over head to instill "shock and awe" into this wolf. I am amazed that Wildlife Services hasn't employed these elite gunmen decades ago but I guess I didn't know that such men existed except in our military.

I do know that they have a non-fiction book entitled Warrior Dreams that wannabee "Long Range Tactical Hunters" should read, if they know how. I read the book and realized that I am just about the right age to become one of these tactical specimens because they normally are baby-boomer age with gray hair, large bellies and beards of various sorts.

Camo is what they wear from morning til night often with headgear labeled NRA and have slogans on their diesels talking about "Smoke-A-Pack-A-Day" which I assume are Lucky Strikes.

 Now I don't know if you've seen any of Idaho's "Long Range Tactical Hunters" or not but usually they drive big diesel pickups with ATVs in the back and wear camo clothes, carry guns on their hips, ankles, and in shoulder holsters along with larger automatic weapons with banana clips slung over their shoulders but seldom walk if they can ride their ATVs, Rhinos or snow machines - of course all with silent engines in "stealth mode" when in pursuit of wolves so as not to scare them when they sneak up on them.

 You can kind of get the pulse beat of this operation when you read the attached email from this anti-wolf group - people putting $100 bills on their windshield and all. You see "Long Range Tactical Hunters" take this hunting serious in Idaho, especially when the animal is a non-Native, gigantic, mega Canuck wolf from way up Nort in Canada where wolves run in packs - this in contrast to the normal coyote-size wolves that hunted rabbits as solitary animals and lived in harmony with ranchers before the wolf reintroduction.

These oversized, bloodthirsty wolves that were reintroduced and hunt baby horses because of their genetic inclination for "reflex sport-killing take real men to hunt them down. Whiskey and beer are often part of the tactical teams tool chest and helps fuel their courage until they can hit a steakhouse to "beef up" for tomorrow's hunt. I wish I had video footage of these athletic "Long Range Tactical Hunters" storming the hillsides around Hailey but this operation is covert because these men don't want other average, run-of-the-mill hunters seeing their tactics in action.

 Never before in history have Wildlife Services and Idaho's "Long Range Tactical Hunters" teamed up to go after wolves before but with Governor Otters $2 million "wolf kill bill" funded for years to come I am guessing these men will probably introduce drones into the equation too, except I heard that Wildlife Services were going to take their marbles and go home if drones got in the way of their airplanes and helicopters.

 Well, I have to reread this email one more time because my doctor tells me that hysterical laughing is really good for blood pressure and health and now that my eyes have cleared up from my last uncontrollable chuckles, I'm ready to risk it one more time

 Don't hesitate to share this with others, but realize, we take wolf killin' seriously in Idaho, so if anybody thinks they want to come and hunt for this wolf, I think they should at least be X Marines, X Navy Seals, or X Rangers because that would be the only kind of men/women that could match the caliber (no pun intended) of our "LONG RANGE TACTICAL HUNTERS" in Idaho.

PS - as IdahoForWolves says: "Hopefully this dangerous wolf will be brought down soon!"
