I imagine stockmen have the 3 point rule for wolves, shoot, shovel, and shut up. I agree with folks raising livestock and protecting their livestock. I had problems with some dogs when I raised cattle and solved the problem with a gun. The owners of the dogs ignored my warnings. :tickedoff  :knuppel2

Well it looks like not only the grizzly bear are coming out on to the prairie.

So are the wolves.

 The mysterious wolf creature was in fact a wolf.

Humm looks like when I'm calling coyotes I need to be carrying some wolf ammo also.Clap


Montana FWP News Release
 
 



DNA results show mysterious canine is a wolf



The canine creature shot in Montana a month ago that captured the curiosity of the nation is actually a gray wolf.


DNA from the animal, which was shot legally by a rancher near Denton on May 16, was tested at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service forensic laboratory in Ashland, Ore. The lab compared the animalís DNA with thousands of other DNA samples from wolves, coyotes and dogs. The conclusion was clear Ė this animal is a gray wolf from the northern Rocky Mountains.


Confusion about the animal might be due to the condition of the animal and the photos, which seemed to show short legs and big ears. Inspection of the animal at the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks wildlife health lab in Bozeman revealed a relatively normal looking, dark brown wolf.


Physical variations arenít unusual for animals, said Mary Curtis, geneticist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.


 ďWithin species there can be variability thatís not surprising at all,Ē Curtis said.


The wolf was a non-lactating female, which means she didnít have a litter of pups. However, any unique physical features she has might also appear in her siblings or parents and may continue to be passed along by others in her family. The wolf measured 45 inches from the tip of the nose to the rump and weighed 84.5 pounds. Itís estimated that the wolf was between 2 and 3 years old.


Wolves are fairly common in Montana. According to the 2017 Montana Gray Wolf Program Annual Report, population estimates suggest there are approximately 900 wolves in Montana. This marks the 13th consecutive year that Montana has far exceeded wolf recovery goals.


Property owners in Montana have broad legal authority to shoot wolves they feel might be a threat to their livestock, as was the case with this wolf near Denton.

Yes
 we have cottontail, snow shoe and jacks to shoot at, at will.
AND of course GOPHERS AKA  Richardson's ground squirrel   

Awesome, D! Snowshoes are great eating, too. I ate them when I lived in Alaska. Years ago I killed a jack rabbit and ate it and it was fine. Cottontails, by the jillions.

You are a lucky fella, D!
