Default Killer Wolves .

I received this email and thought i would pass it on. I cant believe how huge this animals are !

Just a few of the wolves killed this year with the Idaho wolf tag. Wish I could show you a few hundred more pictures. It is just amazing how big they are. Deer, elk, and livestock killing machines. The big question you have to ask yourself is why? These massive wolves are not the native wolf that lived in our area 100 years ago. There was a reason these things where exterminated nationwide. They sure do look cuddly and cute. I wonder if our city dwelling tree hugger society that never has left a city really understands the impact of these killing machines. I wonder if a Trantasaurus-Rex (sp?) was somewhere to be had that they would want to put them back in the wild.
p.s. it's just a matter of time before one of our granola loving green peace hikers goes out on a hike and runs into a pack of these killers and becomes part of the food chain. If you are going into the Blues, Cascades, or up above Spokane hiking, game scouting, mushroom hunting, or something else you better start carrying a side arm. Can you even imagine being out by yourself and having 8 to 12 of these monsters surround you! Think about what kind of appetite a dozen of these must have and remember they are the only predator in our nation that kills for fun along with for food. The amount of animals they take are just a partial portion of what they need to eat. When elk are calving they will kill the calves just for fun after they have had all they can eat and leave the rest to rot.

When held up like that, my dog is nearly as tall, but nowhere near as thick. I'm impressed with the size of their hind legs. Holy crap!

My Siberian Husky weighs 60 pounds.

I don't recall but I think this wolf weighed 75-85 pounds.

Just to pust things into perspective.

What kind of weights are they claiming?

Yah, another bullsh-it hoax going around through email. This came out once in 2009 with the same pics, supposedly wolves from Canada.

In a photo posted on Facebook last week that has since gone viral, a man holds up wolf supposedly weighing 230 pounds and shot in Sun Valley by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. The photo was likely taken in Canada, and the wolf is roughly 135 pounds, officials say. Courtesy photo


I can at least believe that it's in the 120-135lb range. Any bigger than that and I don't think I'd buy it.

After dragging deer out of the woods I can tell you they aren't very light (well usually exept when I shoot those little ones). Seriously look at some of the pics where the wolf is nearly off the ground and the guys are standing straight up without giving the slightest facial expression that they are supposed to be lifting an animal that appears to be well over 100 lbs. Fake.

I seem to recall hearing before that a wolf can get to be somewhere around 200 lbs at full maturity, and they can be somewhere around 7' snout to tail.

coyotes can get into the 80 lb range, and they're the smaller relative to these canine.

My dog is 120 pounds and quite a bit smaller than those. I wouldn't doubt they are 200+ pounds. Where they were shot, who cares. Doesn't make the story any less true that wolves are mean critters.

No, he's saying the same pics come around every now and then with a different story. Example:

Large wolf (hunting photo) - snopes.com

2009, supposedly in Canada.

Good sign of a fake when they keep using the same pixs in different stories...

Thanks H-aggar, apparently I was not specific enough. Here are some published statistics:


http://www.wolfcountry.net/informati...fObserved.html
"Most of the adult grey wolves weigh in the vicinity of 75 to 125 pounds (34 to 56 kilograms). Males are usually larger than females by as much as twenty-five percent. There are authenticated records of male wolves weighing as much as 175 pounds (79 kilograms)."

http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/public/wildlife/wolves/
"An adult male wolf stands about 30 inches at the shoulder and can be over six feet long from the tip of nose to point of tail. It will weigh 70 to 110 pounds. Females are slightly smaller, usually 60 to 80 pounds."

http://www.capitalpress.com/content/...f-op-ed-mug-TK
" "We will have monster 200-pound wolves." The Idaho Department of Fish and Game would beg to differ. Of the 188 wolves taken in the 2009 Idaho wolf hunt, the record weight was 127 pounds and the average was 95 pounds. The myth of monster wolves comes from Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs children's stories, not from reality. "
