Steller: Lone wolf deserves chance to meet others

She must be lonely, spending Thanksgiving weekend wandering the Grand Canyon’s North Rim all on her own.

She’s a fertile, female wolf, and finding a mate is likely the force that drove her southward from her home in the northern Rocky Mountains.

    • Glad you enjoyed it ida, we need a little levity to keep us sane.

      How sad she is so close to wolves but can’t reach them. Maybe she’ll take a jaunt down there before she’s collared and entice an uncollared wolf to join her. Wolves are very good at finding each other.

  3. I have been thinking about the beautiful wolf, how could she meet her mate? is it possible that conservation center could release another male wolf there so they can meet? how can people help her? is it legal for people help her?

    • txfinder…..I had lots of fun writing her personal ad but in all seriousness the article points out she is less than 200 miles from 83 Mexican gray wolves who could use a little of her fresh genetics. But of course the USFWS has thrown up a barrier that doesn’t allow Mexican grays to travel north to the Grand Canyon, if they did make it they would be re-captured. It’s so ridiculous the feds won’t allow wolves to be wolves and do what wolves do. This lovely lady needs a mate and I’m sure there’s a handsome Mexican gray wolf that would be willing and ready to step up to the plate for her. But of course the government has thrown up a million roadblocks to prevent real wolf recovery and they never expected a female wolf to travel from the Northern Rockies to Arizona. She give a big wolf middle finger to them and said, hey, I’m here with or without your permission.!

      Humans just can’t leave wolves alone. Wolves live under a dictatorship, unlike anything any other mammal in North America is subjected to. The persecution of these incredible beings is so over the top it borders on insanity. Wolves inhabited this land long before humans set foot in North America. Gray wolves existed right along side the Dire wolves and outlasted them in the evolutionary game.

      Wolves are treated like terrorists, their every move monitored, hunted, families killed without mercy. Yep we’ve done a really good job of repeating history.

  11. While this post is about the Kaibab wolf, because there are only two days left to support a National Park Service denial of Alaska’s ability to kill wolves on Yukon Charlie Preserve (or any other preserve in AK).

    Alaska, has increased again their desiree to intensively manage – meaning kill predators) for maximum prey species human harvest (meaning killing moose, elk caribou, etc), including killing wolves and pups in denning season, and black bears and their cubs.

    NPS manages animals to maintain ecological natural balances, while still allowing subsistence hunting and some sport hunting on Yukon Charlie (National Parks are off-limits, but Preseerves are meant to be hunted. We cannot address that at this time, but you might want to put in a word against it, as AK “game” management policy is bound to affect the population islands under NPS aegis).

    go to:
    http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=NPS-2014-0004-0001
    to register support (your comment is VALUABLE!) for NPS denail of AK management policies on Federal NPS-managed lands.

    Thank you!

    • In case you believe that this is not important, here is the NPS synopsis, mentioning Alaska’s game management policies not consistent with NPS mandate:

      In the last several years, the SOA has adopted an increasing number of liberalized methods of hunting and trapping wildlife and extended seasons to increase opportunities to harvest predator species. Among the predator harvest practices recently authorized on lands in the state, which included several National Preserves:
      • Hunting black bears, including sows with cubs, with artificial light at den sites;
      • harvesting brown bears over bait (which often includes dog food, bacon/meat grease, donuts, and other human food sources); and
      • taking wolves and coyotes (including pups) during the denning season when their pelts have little trophy, economic, or subsistence value.
      These practices are not consistent with the NPS implementation of ANILCA’s authorization of sport hunting and trapping in National Preserves. To the extent such practices are intended or reasonably likely to manipulate wildlife populations for harvest purposes or alter natural wildlife behaviors, they are not consistent with NPS management policies implementing the NPS Organic Act. Additional liberalizations by the SOA that are inconsistent with NPS management directives and policy are anticipated in the future.”

      Again, go to

      http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=NPS-2014-0004-0001
      and register your disagreement with any nps policy change which accommodates AK.

  13. For the second time within the past month a new study has been published that shows the negative effects of wolf hunting! Researchers have found that wolf hunting actually increases livestock predation: http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0113505

    So if we want to protect our livestock then we need to stop hunting wolves!
