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.

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!!

Hey chiefsquirrel83......you eatin a lot of mosquitoes here lately ain't ya.lol
I am just picking at you.lol but ya'll are wrong to argue about such things amongst hunters if indeed you all are hunters. I will shoot every coyote I see in Ga. due to the fact they are a nuisance as I will with a hog in some places. There is a reason there are conservation measures in place...put there by folks who are educated on the facts not emotion.

Default its a fake

look at the shadows no shadow from man
look at the focus wolf is blurred grass in front of wolf is in focus, man is in focus
mans hands are not gripping each other.
you try to hold that much weight in the position the man is holding the animal. hands above shoulder, arms straight.

wolfs are beautiful so they shouldnt be killed? what does that make deer, rabbits, ducks?

god did create animals who eat other animals, and that is their right, but we have messed it up, taken land, if there are too many of these animals on a piece of land for it to handle, it is our responsability to control the population. its for the good of the species and all others affected

I owned a wolf for a long time. Mother was pulled from a den on an Alaskan hunt. Beatiful animal at approx 130lb. Good natured and protective of my family. He had a mind of his own and I couldnt keep him from roaming. Came home several times with bullet holes in him so I finally found him a new home with someone that raised them and was familiar with there behavior.

Mike, I can understand your feelings. A lot of people are hunters, but not all actually have the ability to kill for the sake of erradicating a pest. When your lively hood is at stake you'll do what needs to be done to protect it.

....Wolves wouldn't ever suffer an over population problem in the orient where dogs are considered among the best and most delicious of meats...They wouldn't be high on my list of carnal fare, but I'd sure take one for a hunting prize. If they presented a threat to me or my family, or our lively hood,I'd have no problem trimming back thier number! Life is life. Even the carrot gives it's life for us. Nothing lives in this world without something dying.
...While we do need to be wise custodians of our environment, it's flora and fauna, we needn't take on a silly sentimentality. Better for all of life, to have fact and common sense based judgement.

I have to agree with balvaric. Losing just one cow a milker or not is a HUGE loss.

It takes a long time to build a herd. You can't buy more time, but you can remove as many predators as needed to protect your domestic animals.
