Last month, a second wolf caught by a coyote trapper, thought to be a coyote, has been proven once again by DNA testing to be a wolf.
Personally, I welcome the wolf back to the island. Killing them off in the first place was folly, as they belong here. They were an integral part of
the ecosystem for tens of thousands of years. The coyotes can go, they're a menace and they simply don't belong. They prey on our pets and take
yearling caribou by their hundreds. A pack of wolves can take down a bull moose, or a big bull 'bou, leaving the youngsters to grow and propagate the
Interesting sidenote is that a mountain lion has recently been sited nearby where I live. Fish and Game said that it's impossible, there no evidence,
blah, blah, blah. But they said the same for the wolf. And they said the same about the coyote, too, until they became an epidemic.
If climate change isn't happening, as so many people like to suggest, then why are so many species venturing into territory they've never inhabited
