The usual suspects blame the wolf and try to portray her as a child-eater, again. In the comments of the above story, notorious wolf hater Laura Bryant Schneburger has this to say:
Two babies playing in the yard while mom unloads groceried, she comes out wolf is in yard with babies. F1105 nearly gets elderly woman bucked off while working heifers, f1105 stays at house and breeds with dog that is just her past year.We personally love the one about the elderly woman "nearly" getting bucked off- like she somehow did it on purpose so she could eat the old lady. (Why not blame the horse?) These are the folks with the bus shelters, remember. They have an agenda to make wolves seem as menacing as possible.
We have no idea what F1105 was doing and maybe we would have felt threatened, too. Would we have called for her death? No. And the greater issue is that the ongoing hysteria and resistance to a biologically-sound recovery program and recent opposition to new releases isn't making things better for the project. Unless the project can get new wolves on the ground to form healthy packs in the wild, we're going to see a lot more unhappy endings.
