Default Picture of HUGE Wolf.

Anyone on here have anything on this wolf? Got this pic in an email today. It was supposed to have come from Idaho. I don't know alot about wolves but this one looks like 150lbs or so to me which is bigger than i thought they were normally

Timberwolves are very large animals. Saw a pet one in Crested Butte Colorado, 100% full blooded. He stood about waist high on all fours, and I'm 6' tall. Not one to be petted by strangers either, but sure was a pretty animal.

I wouldn't be too quick to yell photoshop... I didn't realize just how big a wolf really is until I stood next to one at the taxidermist shop.

The one I stood next to was a white wolf... from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail was right at about 7 feet.. and he stood almost waist high to me...

I'm 5' 9"..

The world record wolf was killed in Alaska in 1939 and weighed like 178 lbs.... Not saying it isn't real, but the picture just looks funny to me, like it's been edited. I use photoshop quite a bit and I don't know about this picture.

It looks photo-shopped to me.

I see them frequently and the head does look too big IMO. They do in fact get big, bigger than you would expect until you see one up close,but my guess is that pic is photoshopped.

Default Wolf

I have come across a big wolf or two and the most striking thing is the size of the head and front paws.
They are smart to be wary of people.

I think Elk are going to be in trouble in a few years when wolves have more numbers.

Because of the way they reproduce! I've also heard they reak havoc on elk and deer populations as well. Beautiful animals but numbers have to be controlled quite closely.

To each his own, but there is no way I could or would shoot a wolf, or mountain lion for that matter. Just me,
though, if there's a season for 'em, I got no problem with it.

No not kill all of them but control their numbers just like we do the deer herd, that is why we were made more dominant. If we did not hunt animals could not survive. Numbers would get out of control.

You say you could never shoot one but what if it had not ate in a week or so and found you while you were walking to your stand. You wouldnt shoot it. They are getting out of control and the more they reproduce the more they will start attacking anything they can get there mouths on. I live in GA and we have a big coyote problem. Same thing with the wolf problem but I can remember not that long ago, there was a child snagged from a playground by a coyote. Luckily someone seen it happen and managed to scare the coyote and he droped the child but if not he would have toted the child away. the child was only like 1 year old. I seen that picture on the news I believe it is real!!
