If You Lived in Bush,
You'd Know That Wolves Kill Moose and Waste Meat
Letters to the Editor / Anchorage Daily News / December 10, 2003
Why don't these armchair experts on wolf behavior consult someone who lives in the Bush year-round and is out among the wildlife every day -- on foot -- not on an ATV or snowmachine.
I was that someone for five years, managing a hunting lodge 120 miles from the nearest road and 38 miles from the nearest and only neighbor.
One November, our local pack of six wolves killed three cow moose within 600 yards of our cabin and ate just the noses and the unborn calf; they never returned.
If these experts feel so compelled to rescue, why don't they rescue people, like maybe unborn babies.
