I know most of you have probably seen this story on the internet but this is happening in my state. I fear for the lone wolf because of the fear attitude taken by wasichus. On this page their are many links showing the young males' journey to find a mate:

Is this the one from the BlacK Hills that made it through canada all the way to either Ct or Mass? It was hit by a car and perished. I think I w ould have rather wrecked my van as to kill such a beautiful animal.

Flip,

This is from the group released in Yellowstone. He was born just inside the Oregon border with Idaho. 700 miles across almost the entire state of Oregon. Damned county supervisor in northern CA wants it shot on sight for fear to her and her children. LOL. This wolf has harmed no livestock nor humans and the witch wants to shoot it. Funny what fear and misinformation breeds.

This comment reminds me of a man I met in Marshal NC. I was buying some flagstone from him and we began talking about the mountains. He told me a mountain lion living on the ridge above where we were standing. He was advocating killing it because of some perceived threat to people. He is a nice guy, even if he is a christian, but so little regard for one of the most noble creature in this land.

Flip, mountain lions will attack people if they are hard pressed enough. But for them it's all about food. Still, no reason to get all panicky and go on a shooting spree. Mountain lions like wolves are just so darned beautiful I couldn't shoot one unless it was do or die.

Amazingly a Mountain Lion was caught alive in SE MO. a few days ago......Even more amazing some hair and skin samples were taken and it was released back into the woods of SE MO instead of being killed.

Yes, Mountain lions can and will attack people. These are usually the sick, injured or old cats that are unable to catch their normal prey. It should be a crime to shoot one of these creatures without solid evedince of a HUMAN attack. As far as livehstock goes, I see that as a payment to mother nature. but that is just my opinion

Mountain Lions, Panthers, and Bears....CT Wildlife Officials consider the first bear hunt since 1840.

Wasichu have driven our younger brothers out of their natural habitat, to be hunted down and killed, for no other reason but the nuisance they cause us. It's a damn shame.

The young wolf has moved a bit south to Lassen County: http://www.sacbee.com/2012/01/25/421281 ... -same.html

This was in today's paper and some of the questions were either a huh? Or, can you really be that stupid?

The wandering wolf is back in California:

Pretty soon a ranch dog in heat is going to hear 'The Call of the Wild' and pups are going to be made. :)

"While in California, OR-7 switched from his normal prey of elk to deer, which are more available."

I'd like to see what they are basing that quote on. Probably more like small game not large game:

He found a mate and the two have had pups just over the border in Oregon from California in a National Forest. There are some pretty good photos here:
