Rocketdog: I have driven down the highway to the airport in Jackson and saw a wolf trotting down the road. My husband and myself talked to the man whose horses were attacked and one killed, saw the photos, talked to fish and game about it. Maybe your friends need to read the paper, the article about the wolves killing a pet in Jackson was in the paper. Wolves are in the valley I live in, 75 miles south of Jackson, jogging and ran into two of them... My daughter was having surgery in Jackson and we watched a pack of wolves pull down two elk on the feedground and leave them both down and dead. My husband was hunting up in Jackson and was shadowed, at about 10 yards away by a pack of wolves, they followed him step for step, stopped when he did, walked when he did. Glad he had a gun, he would have used it if necessary.. Funny, the grizzlies are bad enough, now the wolves are doing the same thing. They are NOT afraid of people at all.
Sorry, but I have lived in the area for 30 plus years, BEFORE the wolves were introduced to Yellowstone........ I have watched all this happen since the wolves were released and the wolves did not stay in the park like was intended, they left to roam and kill livestock and pets. They have learned easy pickings involve humans and the animals they have.
