WOLVES DON’T KILL CATTLE. THEY ARE TOO BUSY CHANGING RIVERS!

aac5dfc310ba60046a03544d27c87c1bLast fall, Malheur County Sheriff’s deputies investigated and confirmed six cattle depredations by wolves in a two month time span.  Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife officials say the cattle were killed by “other causes”, which leaves the ranchers without the option to collect compensation for their losses as provided for in the state’s Wolf Management Plan.

And besides, everybody knows wolves don’t kill cattle.  They are too busy changing rivers.

Meanwhile, here in Washington state, where last week a woman was treed by wolves in Okanogan County…. Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife agents tried to interfere with the rescue operation.  Dispatch records indicate that WDFW agents tried to call off a DNR heliocopter that was being sent to the scene because the wolves are a “Federally protected species”.

WDFW’s demand that outside agencies stand down was ignored and a DNR heliocopter crew arrived on the scene 14 minutes after being dispatched.  The DNR crew spotted the woman in the tree and also noted several wolves on the ground.   The flight crew landed, scared off the wolves, and effected a rescue of the woman.

Donny Martorello- the Wolf Policy Lead for WDFW,  attempted to explain away his agency’s interference because “wildlife biologists familiar with wolf behavior thought the woman was not in immediate danger.”

We all know that wolves can’t climb trees.  The woman was perfectly safe.  These same wolves were spotted later, changing rivers.

  1. The worst part about Wolves is they are spreading 30 different diseases and the worst one is Echinococcus granulosus canadensis EG Cysts tape worm and it is getting into our meat food chain. Wolves kill cattle in their yards and leave their feces and the heads climb up onto the grass and cattle eat the grass. Once a human is infected with EG they are walking dead. Takes years to died a slow painful death.

  2. I have written about wolf diseases in earlier posts. For info on e.g. see https://oldmanoftheski.com/2012/10/13/living-with-wolves-pt-4-a-breakdown-in-governance/

    Also of note, legislation to study wolf diseases and their potential impacts on public health was introduced here in WA State several years back (H.B. 1107), but the common sense bill was quickly derailed by the environmental cartel because they claimed that such information “would lead to less tolerance for wolves”.
