Struggling for Survival

Many who attack wolves say that they are a serious threat to all other animals, that no animal species can overcome the ferocious wolf. They always catch their prey, they’re domination is absolutes. They can overcome any bear, mountain lion, elk, moose or deer.

This is, of course, false. Just like all other wild animals, wolves are struggling for survival. If a wolf does not catch it’s prey, It could starve to death. This is not to say that they are helpless animals. They are not, however, killing machines. Anti-wolf activists never mention that wolf mortality rate is fairly high. Just like bears and cougars, wolves win some, and lose some. Here is an interesting video that proves this.

There are two parts, one where a wolf pack attempts to hunt down a caribou, and another where a pack competes with a young grizzly for control of a moose carcass. I both attemepts, the wolves fail. This is just to show that all animals compete for survival, and the outcome is never the same.

Most people would feel at least a little sorry for the Caribou if it were caught. But you must realize that since it escaped, the wolves must use more energy to hunt more prey. Several wolves were injured, increasing the likeliness that they will starve.

Everything is balanced in nature. That is what you have to realize, and respect that balance.

Are the Wolves Reintroduced to the Rocky Mountains Natural?

There are many questions about the wolves reintroduced to to the greater Yellowstone area. Are they the same as they were before? The answer is yes. These wolves are perfectly natural. The wolves that used to inhabit that area were the Northern Rocky Mountain Wolf. That is the same type that was reintroduced, the same subspecies lives their today, they live from Alberta and British Columbia to Wyoming. The wolves that were reintroduced were from British Columbia.
    The story that many antiwolf supporters tell is this:
“The wolf that used to inhabit this area was the Gray Wolf .  What was reintroduced
 was the Canadian Gray wolf. These wolves are unnatural BLAH BLAH BLAH.
I find this amusing. There is only one species of wolf in North America, the Gray wolf, which is divided into 24 subspecies. There is no subspecies called the Canadian Gray Wolf. Many say that these three subspecies are the ones that were reintroduced, therefore “unnatural”:

Manitoba Wolf-
Can’t be the one reintroduced, since it is extinct.
British Columbian Wolf- Hmmm… Extinct.
Mackenzie Valley Wolf-Almost always white. Doesn’t sound like our wolf. How odd.
 
   It becomes quite clear that the wolves reintroduced are Canis lupus irremotus, the same subspecies that was here before. Scientists do their research, and they know not to reintroduce something unnatural.
Think about it.

Support Nation-Wide Wolf Presevation Effort

The US Fish & Wildlife Service needs a new plan for wolf recovery. The current plan to preserve wolves in the US is over 15 years old. Since that plan was made, more research has been done, and wolf numbers have gone up. The current plan is not updated enough to deal with the current wolf situation. A new plan must be made to bring the wolf population back to where it should be. Something must also be done concerning wolf management and wolf hunting, to define when it is appropriate. To help the wolves, visit Defenders of Wildlife and fill out the letter to push for a better, updated wolf recovery plan.

Click here to send a letter to the Fish and Wildlife Service, advising them to create a new plan.
Defenders of Wildlife still needs 10,000 people to do so.

Getting Started

Hello.

I have just started this blog. When I am finished, it will have information about wolves. It will mainly be about defending the wolves from unnatural threats. I will discuss the truth of wolves, and what they do for the environment. I plan to have eveything ready by mid November. Visit again to see what’s going on in the world of wolves.
