I’ve seen dogs that are the sweetest animals ever until you try to take away a bone or food. If she wandered up on them eating something it could have provoked them to attack.Conman, you certainly could be correct. I was told by people who worked with her everyday that she made that same walk every morning early and that the dogs which they originally tried to pin it on walked with her a lot of the time. I suppose we'll never know for sure unless someone else gets attacked and doesn't die from it. Sort of unusual for a dog to try and eat someone though.
This success was short-lived, however, and the population has once again dwindled due to a surge in the number of wolves killed by humans. (I infer this means wolves running into cars?)
I'm officially banned from that site . I guess they didn't like my comments
The roads are pretty much the only dry ground. Most of the refuges are under water and they’re doing everything they can to flood the areas that aren’t.They are probably trying to find their way home. Roads, concrete and vehicles are much more familiar to these mutts than woods, fields and swamp.
Wearing their collars just assures them that they aren't " wild" and never will be.
Most dogs killed on the road are using it for a similar purpose, to find their way home.
Two word come to mind: "Experimental, and Non-Essential"How can they be too important to lose, if they were pen raised and then turned loose to try and survive in the wild? Seems they were placed here in NC with the understanding they were "expendable" and not required for the "hybrid wolves" to survive in zoos.
In our case it will be faster. The yotes don't have to cross a bridge to get to the woofs.
Another reason the zoo dogs will not create a stable population. Interesting study so far.
I think there are two arguments:You're only helping if you're doing this OUTSIDE the 5 county area. Coyote hunting inside the 5 county area is detrimental to the woofs, or so says judge Boyle. Not sure I understand this, but he's a judge, right? For the life of me, I can't understand how COYOTE hunting is a problem for an introduced critter, who's biggest threat is interbreeding with COYOTES. Maybe that's why I'm not on the bench
If it were possible to capture enough coyotes and sterilize enough to keep from breeding; then why not just do it, and eradicate them? I know every coyote I capture gets "sterilized"2) The very idea of thinking that enough coyotes could be sterilized to prevent more cross-breeding goes hand in hand with this total denial of biological evidence in our fairy-tale culture.
