    This book is utter dumbfounding foolishness. If you want to read about wolves and be informed, read something like "Of Wolves and Men" by Barry Lopez or better yet David L. Mech's excellent works like "Wolves: Behavior, Ecology and Conservation". This book is essentially a bunch of over-hyped gripes, straight bending of truth and opinion being juxtaposed as "truth". As an Idaho native I find this book garbage and indicative that this state is chock full of fools like Ted B. Lyon (Or as I call hi This book is utter dumbfounding foolishness.

    It is so refreshing to read a book on wolves that is “non PC” and is reflective of the experience that grassroots folks like me actually have with wolves. Experiential facts instead of possibly biased public sentiment manufactured by media influence and conflicts-of-interest strewn public-funded research. I routinely encounter wolves on and off my property and see their impacts on our local Upper Michigan deer herd.

Experiential facts instead of possibly biased public sentiment manufactured by media influence and conflicts-of-interest strewn public-funded research. I routinely encounter wolves on and off my property and see their impacts on our local Upper Michigan deer herd. There are consequences to the increased unmanaged wolf population that the public rarely hears about, in part because it just is ignored by the media. Also, little authoritative biases have big impacts on perceptions. For example, the Michigan DNR does not fully disclose the statistical results of their wolf population studies and reports only the lower end of their confidence interval results. Wisconsin is starting to do the same thing — they used to report the full statistical picture on the likely wolf population and that went out the door with their latest announcement.

    Settlers and ranchers hunted these apex predators for a reason. In recent years misguided pro-animal activists have been instrumental in having larger Canada wolves relocated to the Rocky Mountain states where they were protected by Federal law until their numbers are out of control. This book is a must read if you want to understand the impact these wanton killers are having on our wildlife and domestic animals.
