fta I was going fast enough to stay in front of him and took six or seven shots, then realized this was not a safe thing to be doing

That's how it is with guys. The "Oh shiat" signal takes a while to reach the "Wow cool" part of the brain.

Could have been the Wolfen checking out his Indian Chief.
As safe as that man claims to have played it, that is an extremely frightening thing to happen and he kept is head about it.

Isn't it time to take wolves off the endangered species list?

Maybe time to start culling them. They've become a bit too aggressive, as this story shows.

that is a pretty good pic considering he was on a bike, being chased by a wolf and trying to take a picture behind him.  i kinda want to see the rest, not just that one, though i know they will be a blurry mess.

If it was a chick on the motorcycle, she would have just friend-zoned him and it'd be over. The pictures would have been selfies from the wolf for a few following weeks.

On his seventieth birthday, my father was out on his motorcycle and hit a buzzard with his helmet.  Killed the buzzard deader than disco.  No pics of the collision, but somewhere around here we have a pic of a helmet with the birds blood on it.

/best I can do.
// yeah.  my dad is a badass.

Hilarious- it seems chasing any motorised vehicle is almost hard-wired into the canine brain.

CSB: I went to a friend's house a few years ago.  As I pulled up, I saw a fox trot across his lawn, and the street, and then into a neighbor's lawn.  I told him about it, because they had an outdoor cat.  "You might want to keep him inside for a while."  He half-grinned and made it clear he didn't believe I'd seen a fox.  A couple hours later, we were heading out, and the first thing he saw when he stepped out the door was the same fox.

"Oh.  I guess you did see a fox."

Booyah!

Don't miss the real point here:  When wild animals become acclimated to humans and view them as a source of free food, it never works out well for the animal.  People have been feeding this wolf.  Humans now represent an easy hand-out. The wolf does what wolves do--it goes for the most easily caught food.  That said, the biker was a foolish twit, risking his life, the wolf's life, and the lives of unknown others who might be innocently driving down that road, just for the sake of a photo.  Shame.

Not just motorized stuff, people as well.  Watch dogs when runners go past them.  Even if they don't actually take off alongside them, you can see them think it for a second.

The rest probably is a pile of splintered plastic parts and twisted metal. From wiggling the handlebars once too often turning around to get the photo.

A few years ago I was snowmobiling in the arrowhead of Minnesota near Lutsen and I came upon a wolf on the trail.  Followed him for a few hundred yards then thought well his heart is going to explode if this keeps up so I sped up to go around him and right as I was beside him I glanced over and he showed his fangs then jumped sidways in the woods.  It was one of the coolest things I ever saw.  We wer probably less than a two feet from each other at one point.   The next bend I went around though were a mother and child whitetail walking down the trail so I guess I ruined that guys lunch.

The cat is probably a bigger threat to the Fox than the other way around,  domestic cats that are let outside wreak havoc on local ecosystems.   They have all their shots and are well fed so they kill much of the food the wildlife would otherwise catch.

And yet at national parks, it's pretty common to see people feeding them even right in front of signs that say not to.  They think it's so cute to feed them, but they don't quite seem to get why it's a bad idea.


Stupid people.

Alberta doesn't have wolves on an endangered species list and allows hunting them. So your point?
 
2013-06-13 08:56:56 AM  
I don't typically see the point in hunting predators that I wouldn't eat, but that wolf needs to be shot.

We can't let them encroach into the U.S. is what I'm saying. You give those pieces of shiat a little leeway and the next thing you know they're moving in like they own the joint.

He was.  Not anymore, though.  It was quite a feat considering that Super Puppy is a miniature schnauzer

Ah, like wild turkeys, you mean?

We were hoping the coyotes moving in would do something to control those damn things, but they roost in the trees and coyotes can't climb.

No way.....

In my neighborhood, we have foxes, lynx, wolves (or coyotes there is a diff, but I'm not that familiar with it) and even an occasional bear. Cats don't last long around here. It is probably the lynx since they seem to be the most prevalent.

/you could be right in some environments, but domesticated animals are in NO WAY prepared to deal with the harsh realities of living in the wild.

Ever drive in the city or burbs?  Every other frickin car is texting while shaving or putting on make up.  And that's just the cars.  You should see what the people are doing.

I've been chased by a member of the Canis genus before. Once that starts, their life is worth less than my comfort. To hell with the wolf's safety.

He passed by a wolf and then went back to harass it to get it to chase him for a picture.  Moron.

That is such horseshiat.  Our house had a cornfield behind it when I was little.  We'd occasionally find the carcasses of stray cats back there that had been found and eaten by coyotes.  Never once seen a cat trotting around with a higher predator in it's mouth.

I honestly don't understand what's wrong with shaving in a car.  I shave every day in the car with an electric razor and there's nothing distracting about it.  Maybe the people who can't shave and drive at the same time are slow-witted or dumb or something.

They dont like pedal bikes either. When I was a kid there were a couple nasty dogs around we had to avoid. If you wanted to go to the local convenience store you had 2 choices...go the long way, or "make the run". Making the run involved taking a short cut through the woods (kids used to go in the woods, without adults) on the trails, one of which let out near the store...and right across the street from a house with 2 good sized dogs, both of which didnt like the bikes. We would come out of the woods, walk our bikes around a fence, then jump on and ride for all we had, as the dogs came running after us. The day we heard one of them had been hit by a car and killed was a joyous day for us. After that the other one didnt leave the front yard.
