Rescuing Wolf Pups/Killing Wolf Pups….

Wolf pups like this is in Idaho’ s Lolo and Selway Zones don’t stand a chance

June 2, 2012

Little wolf pups are emerging from their dens in Idaho’s  Lolo and Selway zones where the wolf hunt IS ONGOING, stretching into June. Lactating alpha mothers and their pups are sitting ducks  for “hunters”, lambs to the slaughter. So in this context I read the moving  story of the little wolf pup who was found by campers  last weekend in the Sawtooth National Forest. They assumed he was a lost puppy and called the cops who advised them to take him to a vet, where it was determined this was probably a little six-week old wolf pup. A DNA test was done, the results are pending.

There are many unanswered question surrounding this little guy, was his mother poached? Did the pack move to a rendezvous site, leaving him behind accidentally?  Of course we’ll never know. It seems unlikely a wolf mother would leave her little one behind, wolves adore their babies.

There’s a search on for his natal pack so he can be reunited with them, which becomes increasingly remote with each passing day.

“field technicians with the Wood River Wolf Project and Fish and Game have been scouring the area near where the pup was found since Sunday, searching for any signs of the pack the pup might have come from.”

Even IDFG “Regan Berkley, regional wildlife biologist” and “Randy Smith, big game manager for the Magic Valley Region” have commented on the pup.

It’s looking more and more like the little wolf will be spending the rest of his life in captivity, probably a wolf sanctuary and  personally I don’t think that’s such a bad thing, considering the wolf hating climate in Idaho.  Which brings me back to the point of this post.

It strikes me as hypocritical that IDFG managers are taking an active interest in this pup’s welfare when up North in the Lolo and Selway, pups just like him can be slaughtered along with their mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers.  Idaho is a brutal place to be a wolf.  Hunters snared, trapped, shot and arrowed wolves from August 30, 2011 to March 31, 2012.  The slaughter continues in the Lolo and Selway right through breeding, denning and pupping season. This is not a place where a little wolf pup wants to be.  Not only did Idaho hunters kill 378 wolves in the last seven months but Wildlife Services continues to kill wolves for agribusiness.  A wolf kill order recently went out for Flat Top Ranch, with the Little Wood Pack in trouble.  So more wolves will die.

Idaho is decimating it’s wolf population quicker then you can say lickety-split and earning a nasty reputation for itself.  It’s been just one year since  President Obama signed the budget bill/wolf delisting rider and sent the apex predators into the arms of their enemies and oh how they are delighting in slaughtering them.  Just take a visit to some of the wolf hating sites on Facebook or peruse hunting forums to see the carnage in full color. One thing about trophy hunters, they love to pose over the corpses of their prey, smiling like they’ve won the lottery. Of course they don’t just like to kill wolves, they take pleasure in torturing them.

While America sleeps, the wolves they paid millions of dollars to restore, after almost every last one of them was shot, poisoned and trapped by the 1930′s,  is on the road to extermination once again in the lower 48.

So excuse me if I think the little, lost wolf hit the jackpot by getting rescued and how sad is that? He has a better chance of surviving in captivity and having a life then ending up in a choking snare, or shot in the gut writhing in pain or sitting for days in a trap trying to chew off his own foot, thirsty and alone waiting for the trapper to come back so he can choke him to death from behind or stomp on his head and body until he kicks and crushes the life out of him. No this little boy is better off somewhere else then the hell hole that Idaho has become for wolves.

Lone wolf pup found near Ketchum

Campers thought animal was domestic dog

     Out-of-town campers picked up a 5-week-old wolf pup last weekend thinking it was a lost dog, state officials reported.

Regan Berkley, regional wildlife biologist with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, said a couple picked up the pup on the afternoon of Friday, May 25, in the Sawtooth National Forest near Ketchum. After calling the Ketchum Police Department, the couple was advised to take the pup to a local veterinarian’s office.

  1. Great post, Nabeki. I’d rather see the pup be in the wild, but at least in a wolf sanctuary he’ll see his first birthday, unlike most of Idaho wolves. Regan Berkley said in the article the pup might have fallen out of the back of a pickup truck, she didn’t know if it was a wolf or someone’s dog. Maybe he fell from a flying saucer, Regan? By the way, Regan’s boss, Jerome Hansen, IDFG Magic Valley Region – just gave the massace order for every wolf in the Little Wood because Flat Top Ranch/John Peavey has done everything possible to put his ewes and lambs at risk. He’s doing “open range” lambing to save money. BOYCOTT LAMB & WOOL PRODUCTS.

  2. I saw a brief news story on tv with some regional wildlife biologist with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, (didn’t catch the name) commenting on how this little wolf should have been left there for its parents to find him. Normally that would be exactly right.

    However knowing how these majestic sentient beings are being hunted with almost maniacal zeal and delight in their torture, suffering and misery, all I could think was, left for what purpose?

    This little one may have truly won the lottery and be one of the few to actually survive this unconscionable and indefensible slaughter that is going on.

    In another time I would have agreed to let him be where he was. But in the current situation not so much. Knowing the behavior of wolves, and then the behavior of certain humans that would cruelly, happily murder them you could say the most dangerous animal in the woods is not the wolves, but rather the two legged ones.

    Until Regan Berkley can guarantee that these pups and mothers aren’t going to be poisoned, bludgeoned, tortured, maimed or murdered just for living in their homes, I appreciate and thank the out of town campers who didn’t know any better. They may have unknowingly given this pup the greatest gift of his life.

    It would be great if he could be relocated elsewhere. If not, hopefully he can go to a sanctuary where there are other wolves and well intentioned humans that know how to work wolves.

    I don’t envy Regan Berkley and his job for one second. If he is truly trying to help/save the wildlife in his region and do the right thing, he has got one uphill battle. Good luck.

  4. Thank you for this comprehensive, yet so terribly, more than “sad,” article. Telling-It-Like-It-Is! I have known of the torturing of the wolves. Trophy hunters and the “good ole boys.” Having “fun.” Many boozed-up. The cruelty inflicted should be criminal, a felony!! Obama campaigned on protecting wildlife. He posed with *rancher, Secretary of Interior, Ken Salazar, right after Inauguration: FOR *CHANGE. It was explicit our WILD ONES would be protected. SCIENCE!! A reversal of Bush’s policies. A few days later, Obama announced a back to Bush’s killing of wolves, bison, roundup of wild horses…!!! Such a betrayal to the American taxpaying public who “own” our wild ones. So we see again, the killing of wolves to extinction…then what? Back to “endangered.” Salazar was the worst choice. Why pick a man to be Secretary of Interior when he announces he hates and kills wolves and hates wild horses?? Because he was Obama’s buddy in the Senator days? Salazar has such power: SalaCZAR! And BTW, there is no response from Obama & Salazar if one tries to contact regarding all the above. DOORS CLOSED.

  8. We couldn’t agree more. It seems an impossible idea to reintroduce him to his pack safely being so young. Our foundation has offered to take him so he can live with our pack of nine, educating about their true nature. If he has to be in captiv ity, we offer a life without a cage. We don’t know if they are taking our option seriously which would even be a bigger shame. The older he gets, the less we can socialize him. Praying for the best outcome, everyday.

I wish the little guy all the best and a long, happy and safe life – even if it is at a wolf sanctuary rather than his wild and NATIVE home!

You can see the pictures on the post and wonder how can someone be so cruel to slaughter such an innocentand helpless creature, because I wonder that and to this day I still can’t undestand it, I would REALLY WANT TO KNOW WHAT GOES ON IN THE MIND OF A PERSON WHO IS TAKING AWAY THE LIFE OF A PUPPY. If somebody has the evil inside to do that atrocity, he or she must be the devil himself. I’m glad tby this little pup may be going to a sanctuary, as at least there he will have rules protecting his life.

      The lousy public image of Idaho is NOT a recent development. Four years ago, sportspeople elsewhere in the country began commenting that the entire state should be enclosed by razor wire fencing and all its citizens heavily armed, with year-long open seasons declared on Idaho’s humans! Since then it has only gotten worse.
      Now it is not a popular idea for anyone from outside the state to even visit Idaho: Why give those people any of our money, even to pay for gas and food while driving through? Grocers in New York are becoming aware that generic “American” beef and lamb, Idaho potatoes and Coors Beer are not selling well; also Cold Water Creek clothing company’s sales are down.

  21. And to think, when this first started, I was all for wolf hunting. I thought, ‘Well, their going to do this right! Their going to manage wolves like wolves, and their going to go by science to kill off the right amount to keep them healthy.’ Then, they hunted them like deer, not wolves, completely ignored science and destroyed their genetic diversity. Then… this. -_-
    I told them, I told them this would go badly, and the wolf would be re-listed within years. That was how I ended my last argument with an anti-wolfer. At the time, I was secretly hoping I had lied to myself and I was exaggerating… but then… :’(

I used to feel sorry for all the animals kept in zoos, but I now know better. They are safe from hunters and Government slaughter-jerks. They most likely will only have a chance to survive if they are kept in captivity. I can’t believe our country has come to this. How embarassing. When I was young, none of this crapp went on, and there was not any bad news about animals like there is today. It is heartbreaking. I don’t understand how someone could get pleasure in torturing and killing innocent animals that are just trying to stay alive and feed their families. The wolves were here first; ranchers came later. They are the ones that need to step up to save their cattle, etc. Electrify your fences or try other resources. Make the GOV’T foot the bill! They are the ones who order the kills anyway. This needs to stop; I would love for my grandkids to be able to know about wolves in the wild, and not just in books.

    • Sue…Of course little wolves are always better with their families and I would never in a million years have thought I would say that a wolf pup would be better off in captivity but the way things are in Idaho, its a living hell for wolves. That pup probably wouldn’t have lived through the first few months of the hunt. Either they’ll kill his pack or kill him. This is the most disgusting situation, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming should hang their heads in shame for what they are doing but the sad truth is they DON’T CARE! A wolf means nothing to them and that’s why they can kill their babies and tear their families apart with impunity. What is even more upsetting is to hear wolf biologists supporting the hunts. We not only have to fight the wolf haters but people who should be standing up for wolves against this slaughter and they’re not. That’s why we’ve lost so many battles. The Democrats betrayed wolves, many of the biologists and even some environmental groups. It’s ridiculous. But the wolf haters are united in their single purpose to kill as many wolves as possible. If only we had the unity they have.

      • For clarification, there is no wolf hunting season in Idaho’s Southern Mt Zone at this time. It ended March 31st & starts again Sept. 1st. There were no wolves killed in the vast drainage where this pup was found during the 2011-12 hunt. One was shot in the 2009-10 hunt, though. Keep in mind the canyon is over 20 miles long with many steep, rugged tributaries. The weather was raining and snowing on Memorial Day weekend. Perhaps the den was flooded. Residents in the area heard howl-barking and no one knows what caused this – whether the mother wolf ran into a mountain lion, a black bear, coyotes or what. Then the pup got left behind as it apparently had an injury & was not moving well. None of us can say whether it would have been better to have left the pup on its own along the road, or did what the tourist did, and picked it up – she thought it was a dog. The terrain is so rugged in parts of the area, that it would be very difficult to find the pack even if they were within a couple of miles.

      Anne, I’ve seen this petition and website but I’m confused by their statements. For instance:

      The Gray Wolf is a species of wolf recognized as Endangered by the US Government

      The gray wolf has been delisted in the Northern Rockies and the Great Lakes region, they are not considered endangered by the USFWS..that is what the entire fight is about….to restore their ESA protections. So I don’t understand that statement.

      and Extirpated by New York State.

      I’m sure there were wolves in New York state at one time and their may be lone dispersers from Canada but the majority of wolves in the lower 48 are found in the Northern Rockies, The Great Lakes and the Southwest.

      This species of wolf’s numbers have dropped as low as 150 per state due to destruction of their natural habitat and and hunting wolves for game.
      What states are they talking about?
      ==
      This petition and website, although well meaning, is confusing to me. I’m not really sure what they mean?

  34. I was told that Idaho would only allow the pup to go to a place that would not speak out against the wolf slaughter. Busch Gardens told me ” It is not up to us how a state manages their wildlife “.. Jerks

  36. In my opinion what goes around comes around humans will probably learn that to late, i hope the people who cursed wolves as evil beings burn in hell for eternity, people don’t seem to understand that wolves are natures balance, so a few hunters cant get good deer or elk oh cry me a river you bastards you mostly hunt for sport and entertainment so you can brag about your kill to your drunken idiotic friends, you kill parent wolves and take them away from their pups leaving them to starve and fend for themselves, if i found a den of orphaned pups i would take them home and raise them as my own no matter what the law says and i would die to protect them
