Okay. Wolves killing teachers in Alaska. That about does it for me.

I wonder whether they need teachers in Haiti.

LOL Moose but Feral (yep that's her name) would have issues with this.
That wolf might not be a vegan wolf. Wonder if she's gonna come up to protest
to save the humans?

That is a sad story and the terror that was inflicted on the teacher is unimagineable, heart goes out to the family...

A .22 Mag pistol will drop a wolf like a bag of sand, anything bigger and the hide is ruined..

But normally when I am out and about I carry a .44 Mag, not the best for bears, but you can really make them have a bad morning too.

The Gal that changed her name to Ferrell to protest the wolf hunting/trapping should have taken another wild animal name that really suits her.... "Loon"

Of late, there have been a few wolf/people issues where the wolf was stalking them, but it has gone on for centuries... Just when you are eaten in the wild, you just are gone and nobody knows where you went.

Yea, probably not enough meat on her vegan carcass to make it worth the Wolves' effort!
