Wolves and the Environment

I have been following the reintroduction of the wolves to Yellowstone Park since 1995. I have met people from areas surrounding the Park and have heard both sides of the controversy. To me it is a fascinating debate. The whole predator topic and the impact the predator has on the entire food chain and ultimately the affect the predator has on our environment is something that should be studied before one picks which side of the controversy he will take. Here is another side of the debate:

"Wolves' Leftovers Are Yellowstone's Gain, Study Says

John Pickrell
for National Geographic News
December 4, 2003

Amid controversy, gray wolves (Canis lupus) were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park in 1995. Now, new studies are hinting at the added benefits that the once-spurned carnivore have rapidly brought to the preserve.

Research published last month revealed that—unlike other top predators—Yellowstone's wolves routinely leave unfinished elk (Cervas elephas) and moose (Alces alces) carcasses. These provide essential scraps for scavenging coyotes (Canis latrans), eagles, and other animals. Related work suggests that these carcasses provide dinner more consistently, and for more species, than remains discarded by human hunters.

Other recently published findings show that wolves may also be rebalancing Yellowstone's ecosystems. Some streamside trees, such as species of cottonwood (Populus) and willow (Salix) are growing vigorously once more in areas overgrazed for much of the last century, researchers wrote.

"Part of the integrity of the ecosystem has been restored," said Christopher Wilmers, an ecologist of the University of California, Berkeley, and lead author of two of the studies. The findings vindicate the decision to bring wolves back, he said."

The answer is BALANCE

Which is all predator control in Alaska is about. Balancing the needs of humans for food they depend on to live, with sustainable healthy numbers of wolves.

No one wants to eradicate wolves from Alaska. That would be foolish and would cause a serious imbalance in nature.

But since wolves have no predators, and they are decimating moose and caribou that humans NEED, their numbers must be controlled.

I suppose the alternative would be to make tens of thousands of rural residents move to the cities and give up their native diets for a diet of healthy American food. But who would pay to move all these people to the cities?

Nice reply.

Your reply made me think about the over abundance of whitetail deer here in Iowa. This is in no way comparing the state of Iowa to Alaska. I live in a rural area where the deer explosion is skyrocketing despite Iowa being a favorite deer hunting state. During deer season the sound of shotguns going off is constant in my area.

Last year in Iowa we had a particularly harsh winter with so much snow cover that the huge deer herds were starving. I have pictures of about 50 deer on top and around some hay bales right down the road from me. What a sight.

As home building moves into the rural areas, the deer have move into the cities. Cities now allow deer hunting inside city limits. Deer and car collisions are increasing. If you drive at night here, one must be on constant alert. But except for the human deer hunters, the deer no longer has any natural predators. Of course there will never be a time when wolves will be welcome here. Iowa is just too heavily populated.

There have been a few inaccuracies here.

The wolves in Yellowstone & other areas have killed livestock upon which people depend for a living, as well as domestic pets. There is no ranching of cattle on any scale that I know of in Alaska. The wolves up there are not killing cattle & sheep. If wolves are coming into peopled areas in Alaska & killing domestic pets, then there would be a reason for hunting them. If they are decimating herds in Alaska that people depend upon to hunt & eat, then they need to have their population controlled. What some people don't understand though, is that hunters kill the big strong elk/caribou/mountain sheep/deer, etc. Wolves kill the old, weak, sick, lame, stupid, young in the herd. They provide a reason for the smartest & most fit animals to survive & breed. Nature knows best when it comes to population control in a natural environment. It's not natural when a virtual buffet of sheep & cattle and dogs & cats are available to wolves.

Also, if these wolves weren't hunted by plane, they would be killed by poison or traps. I would much rather be shot, than die slowly in a trap (gnawing off my foot to get loose), or agonizingly by poison.

Send the wolves to Washington,DC

and let them go after there own breed of wolves our congressmen and woman
and then go to Pennsylvania Ave. there they will find a Texas and Wyoming CHICKENHAWKS !!!

vegetables, fruit, grain and hemp?

The Ron Paul garden.. hmm. My next project?

Have you ever seen the north slope of Alaska?

There's no native fruits or vegetables except some berries and a few other minimal ground-covering plants (most not edible). You cannot grow anything in the ground during the 60-day unfrozen period of the year. No fruit, no grain, no veggies, no hemp. Hm. What does that leave? Oh yeah, moose, caribou, whale, and walrus. Good thing nature knew what it was doing.

Wolves: my cousin in Montana

has a homeschool family next door who raise sheep for a living. The wolves that escaped from Yellowstone came one night and killed 30 of the sheep, and didn't eat one of them. Wolves kill for pleasure. We are their only predator. Although this business of controlling them by shooting them from helicopter (government's idea) is a bad idea, because it makes them afraid of helicopters, and not of humans, which is as it should be, because they are very bold, if not afraid of humans. I live in a wilderness area and we have seen a wolf here. If they are not afraid of humans, they will eventually have our children as their prey. The government should allow ranchers to kill them themselves when they are killing their stock. After all, they are dependent on them for their livelihood. If wolves came to destroy your paychecks, you may feel differently about them.

I've been up close and personal

with an errant wolf in an urban setting. They are scary creatures.

Here in Alaska, they *have* killed people's pet dogs, and even a pet wolf hybrid (go figure). Taking down a child would be easy for them.

I don't believe it is really "right" to hunt "for fun", but hunting for food and fur, or to protect one's assets (sheep, cattle, etc) or food source (moose, caribou) is certainly beyond reproach.

Scr*w the government and just--

Freedom is not FREE!!
Shoot them! Do not let the meat go to waste. Find a use for it such as traps, fishing,eating whatever. I ate Monkey, Boa Constricter and many other unpalatable things. I lived. That is what counts.

PS: The monkey was quite good on an open spit.

I'll have

To try it someday. I wonder if I can get some monkey in the states?

Let's restock Central Park with Wolves and Bears

Before the human sprawl of NYC wolves and bears used to live where central park is today. I think we should work on restocking this park with these animals so those city dwellers can appreciate what it's like to live with nature.


Growing up in the midwest, I had no idea that bears used to frequent my neighborhood just 150 years before. Urban sprawl is much to blame for the various imbalances in nature today.

Cities are artificial. People need to know how to live among nature and off the land.

I watched this ad and laughed at how ridiculous it was

Do you depend on moose and caribou for your daily nutrition?

I know people who do. People who live in tiny villages, where the tiny stores might sell a freezer-burned old pound of ground beef for $10.99. Where a can of soup costs $5.00. Where a gallon of milk costs $9.00. Where a small box of generic cereal costs $8.00. Fortunately, nature has supplied moose and caribou for humans to eat. But, wolves like to hunt moose and caribou, too, and often the wolves just take the animal down without even eating much of it. What a waste. Wolves are brutal predators, and they are decimating the food supply.

These people depend on moose and caribou for their daily attempts to not starve to death. Wolves, who have no natural predators, and whose numbers are sky high, have been taking down record numbers of moose and caribou, and threatening the human food supply.

Get off your high horse. When you want to eat, you can go buy yourself a hamburger at McDonald's, but tens of thousands of Alaskans don't have that luxury. For them it's McTheGreatOutdoors or starve. Apparently you care more that wolves eat the moose (or just kill the moose for fun and leave the meat to rot) than humans. Nice priorities.


I agree with you Ron... lots

I agree with you Ron... lots of folks pass judgement and do not know what the hell they are talking about!

im not sure that theyre

im not sure that theyre using the wolves for food or absolute survival...you may not care that these beautiful animals get slaughtered but some of us do...killing them off just because theyre trying to survive and eat as well?
threatening the human food supply...im sure you guys up there wouldnt starve to death by living amongst the animals who have more right to be there than you do...

No one is "killing them off"

The idea of predator control is not to "kill off" the predator, but to rein their population in, so that they don't decimate food supplies.

The point is that native Alaskans (Eskimos) who have lived here for millenia, and who used to be able to do their own predator control without some know-it-all palefaces from DC telling them they're evil, are having their moose and caribou supplies decimated by wolves, who don't even kill just to eat. Most moose and caribou taken down by wolves go to waste; they kill for fun, literally.

These people have been eating moose and caribou in this land since times B.C. Pray tell, how would you see to it that a) they don't starve, and b) how can you suggest the animals have "more right" to be here than the native peoples of this land?

I think she has realized that she is in over her freakin' head at this point, and she may well be hoping to lose in November.

Palin believes in human cloning

I heard she wanted to clone herself so she could personally be everywhere in the state and kill every animal herself with her bare hands. I belive this is true because I once read it on PETAs website and they would NEVER exagerate anything ever.


Palin Promotes Wolf Blitzing

Is she a sheep in wolf's cloning? She's beginning to show greater followership than I'd hoped to see. Sadly, she may be passing the Kokesh Test too well.

I think she is out of her comfort zone

Honestly, I think in her heart of hearts she is right now saying "oh my god, what the hell did I get myself into?!?!?" Secretly she is praying and hoping with all her spirit and heart and might that McCain loses, so she can come home to Alaska and be obscure again. Dealing with a few hundred thousand Alaskans is one thing. The world is another.

I think if Ron Paul had chosen her, she'd be parroting Ron Paul. But since she signed onto the Straight Talk Campaign for World War 3, she's been briefed on what the issues are, what her position is, and how she'd better toe the line. If you listened to her interview, it was almost as if she was reciting rehearsed lines, as she repeated some of the answers multiple times, almost verbatim.

She has her talking points, she has her instructions, and she knows what her job is. I think she was initially flattered to be asked, and now realizes she is in way over her head.

Even if she did disagree with John McCain, she couldn't say it publicly. You don't drive the Coca Cola delivery truck around town while drinking a bottle of Pepsi.
