If this were a YouTube video, it would be fun to watch.

To us Australians it is kind of like watching it on YouTube, but it is not fun to watch.

It is horrifying.

Well, I've said before that I think the USA is headed for civil war and is doomed anyway; we seem to have pulled back a bit from the brink but the basics have not really changed. I've also said that I would have already emigrated if my personal poker hand held slightly different cards.

I've got an 85lb GSD "puppy".  Just turned 11 months.  His favorite sport when we take him hiking in the desert is to chase big jack rabbits.  Jeebus that dog is fast!  The only time I've been concerned is when he's turned up a coyote a couple of times and gave full on chase  The yote about shit himself, as my GSD is 3+ times their size and almost as fast.  A full grown adult coyote here gets to maybe 25lbs.  

....

 

I strongly suggest discouraging him from chasing coyotes.

They are quite clever and ruthless, and have set up ambushes for dogs chasing them, many times in the past.

Something can't be 'fairly unique'. It's either unique or it isn't.

And anyway that statement is bullshit. Cats, foxes, orcas and leopard seals kill things for the pleasure of doing so, or at least do so for reasons other than hunger. So do domestic dogs now I think about it - lots have been shot for chasing sheep around the place in Australia.

FKT

bolding mine.

 

I would also like to hear your "take"  on this whole mess.

 

Edited;

The road next our place was twisty & on a hill.

I was a regular occurence to have a _new_ dog show up,, DUMPED, ( taken to live with a nice family in the country)

most ended up shot when they started "running" the cattle.

^Ding^. I had breakfast a few years ago in BFE Arizona with a professional Coyote 'dispatcher' who was contracted out with the state bureau of Fish & Wildlife there....and made good moola hunting down the wily ones that were eating livestock and/or causing havoc on farms and rural areas. Suffice to say.....these are NOT dumb animals.....

Yeah, I'm well aware of that, especially the ambush aspect, and have absolutely discouraged him.  But once the chase is on - it's hard to stop him.  Because of the coyote thing - I always hike with my 9mm Glock now.  Not that I could hit one if they were more than say 50 yds away, but hoping the noise would would distract them enough to break off any attack on the dog.

The noise (at least once or twice) should be enough to at least make them think twice.....or better yet, back up and go find a sick cat or something easier. 

 

A few years ago out in BFE empty land Arizona I woke up at dawnish to some gawd-awful moo cow noises....and yippy kai-aaaaas. Grabbed my .22 WRM revolver and walked a couple thousand feet to my neighbor's property and came across a big ass cow about to give birth.....and at least nine or ten coyotes in a semi circle waiting for breakfast. Being kinda a gun guy but not too much of a country boy, I thought about this for a bit then figured one round in the ground near me, then maybe a couple more near their feet (with a clean backdrop). Took two in the dirt to actually get their attention before they started backing off. Then I got smart and remembered I had a neighboring cattle rancher's phone number and let him know what was going on. He got there in 10 minutes and was pretty grateful for the call....

Then I would suggest you not leave your dog tied up outside.  I've never understood the point of evening having a dog if it lives outside and is tied up in the yard all day and night.   ,,,

Your dog and mine, as well as most of the others here, 

, live a lifestyle of Privelege, pampered like Royalty.

, hand fed  treats by you & me

, trips to fun places to chase wabbits, 

, warm inside when it's below freezing outside

, while I'm typing, Jack the 70 lb pit, is snoring in the recliner, with me perched out on the edge.

ect

 

The  dogs being killed are "blue collar"  Working dogs.

duck dogs, bear dogs, pheasant, and so on,

and ranch dogs , sled dogs, and so on.

A couple of times, I have been able to watch a couple of Austrailian Shepards "working" a flock of sheep.

Very impressive,  Very very impressive that 2 dogs can put 100 sheep in whichever corner of a pen because "Dad" pointed that way.

Pretty well most working dogs are kept outside.

 

, hoping you reconsider that position,

, cuz my first thought was to say something rude,, like

 MELI HACKED JEFF'S ACCOUNT !!!

I'm not a "fan" of wolves, I just happen to understand that a healthy ecosystem needs more predators that evolved within that ecosystem... not cars & sport hunters.

If it's inconvenient or costs ranchers money, too fuckin' bad. The wolves were here first, nobody gets a guarantee that the Universe will bend itself to your liking.

About that particular animal shelter... I dunno about nowadays, but 20 years ago when I lived just down the road from it, it was run by stoners and dreamers who thought any furry cute animal was just a sweet little cuzzums-wuzzums. I'm always a bit surprised it doesn't have more 'accidents.' It started out as a big-cat shelter, when did they branch out into wolves?

They were here, then they were gone because of the above, now they're back because we want them back. Which is great and I support it. But if what we distant people want is going to cost our fellow citizens on the scene money, we should also want to help shoulder that burden. "You pay for what we want, too bad" is just going to result in "shoot, shovel, shut up." We can find ways in law to compensate them for losses or otherwise make the wolves valuable to them, not a threat to their businesses.

I forgot to mention that there are also big Mt Lions up in the alpine forests here once you get high enough out of the desert.  I'm not worried in the slightest about either coyotes or cougars attacking me (unless I go to a bar).  But my dog is always with me on hikes and he's not been exposed enough to either predator to understand what a threat they are.  So the gun is for him, not me - douche canoe.

True.  And as my own black wolf is curled up next to the bed, that pic makes me very sad.  A wolf just does what a wolf does.  To hunt them for just doing their thing is BS.   Now if a rancher catches them in the act of going after their cattle, dog, or child and shoots one, I have no issue with that.  But to hunt them down in the wild for no other reason than they might be a threat to livestock is just wrong.

Wild Dogs around SE QLD are not necessarily Dingoes.

Unfortunately they have cross bred.  They are larger and not as wary of humans.  We see them here several times a year and the local authorities have to use a baiting program to keep the numbers down.  Lost a few calves to them.

Waited for them to come back to a carcass one misty dawn, unfortunately the big dog I drilled in the half light and at some distance while chewing on the calf was from a neighboring property, even though I warned them to keep them secure till I dealt with the wild dogs.

The only positive from that fuck-up is that I haven't seen a neighbors dog on my property since.  Word got around apparently.

It's a young adult's book, which isn't a bad thing, Jack London's socialism and unionism is on clear display in most of his work, he mutes it a bit for the younger readers. It's interesting though to see his views through a more contemporary lens, like Orwells 1984, and Avi's The Good Dog, which hides the politics in a dog story just as well as London.

We have mountain lions around our house. My dog IMMEDIATELY knows when they are around, and makes a bee-line toward the house, begs with giant eyes at the door to be let in. It's like a lion early-warning system. From my limited experience of all the dogs in my neighborhood, they seem to know the immediate danger of a lion. They don't recognize the danger of coyotes, because of the feral odor, but they know the danger of a lion ... if they have one lonely strand of wild dog DNA left next to their genes that have them curl up on the sofa and beg for treats, it sproings up like an antenna when they smell a lion; tail drops, ears drop, head drops, and they slink away quiet at a baby mouse. And then it's upstairs to a dark corner of a closet to hide.

As for coyotes, I think a gun isn't needed, they are feral enough to respond to human instructions. Throw a rock at them, wave your arms, unless they've bred with dogs, they rarely get aggressive if there is a human nearby. Now if there was a way of giving an unaccompanied dog a small handgun, and teaching him or her to use it, that might be a good idea.

Wolves and brown bears, that's a whole different thing, a gun is a good backup if the bear spray doesn't work.

And if they're the only ones around, and happen to own a battlefield .22 and a shovel, guess what else is too fuckin' bad?

They were here, then they were gone because of the above, now they're back because we want them back. Which is great and I support it. But if what we distant people want is going to cost our fellow citizens on the scene money, we should also want to help shoulder that burden. "You pay for what we want, too bad" is just going to result in "shoot, shovel, shut up." We can find ways in law to compensate them for losses or otherwise make the wolves valuable to them, not a threat to their businesses.

I have no idea how they do it in Florida, in Colorado, the cattlemen are no longer in charge of the government.

Back when I was a kid, the cattle ranchers owned the government and they shot any wolf, lion or bear that they saw. It was just business. The the oilmen took over the government and they gave the sheriff's deputies antiquated tranquilizer guns that they half-heartedly tried before reaching for their sidearm on treed lions. Then the dot-com people took over government for a while (of which our current governor is from) and now it's the real estate people.

The real estate people look at ranching as a threat to their profit-taking, they are more than happy to befriend the enemy of their enemy ... lions are protected, wolves are reintroduced, bears and moose allowed to wander willy nilly.

Very true good catch.  Also his arm would be digging in a lot deeper under the weight of the wolf.  He’s still a douchebag.

No, Jeff, that's just "average".  in PNW

Studying the Dire frightened me.

The key difference, Jeff between your wolf & mine (curled up, leaning against my back & snoring)

The "Wolf" has been bred out.

 

This is where you are just plain wrong. I've mentioned the risk/reward factor more than once. and not just livestock,,

Rare surgery carried out on baby in Hubballi after face damaged in wolf attack- The New Indian Express

,and in the PNW, there are instances of Bambi& Elk hunters who "needed a gun"

I'm sorry Mike, but you're going to have to use a lot better source than some kid in India getting mauled by a wolf.  And even if that were in Spokane..... who cares?  One kid does not entitle humans to hunt down and eradicate a predator population who was here long before humans.   Humans are not always at the top of the food chain, especially in the wild.  When we encroach into their territory, we are fair game for them to hunt us.  If they wonder into a city, then the roles are reversed.  Sorry but it is what it is.  And frankly, if wolves culled a few more stupid people than they do now, our own breed would be a lot better off.

Yeah, I don't get it either.

I do understand there has to be a balance and wild life controlled.

But I don't understand why other means of targeted fertility control cant be used.

And why someone takes pride in being photographed with their comparatively helpless victim, and the more beautiful and rare the victim, the prouder the killer seems to be.

It's verging on psychotic when you think about it.

When I see Don Jr holding a rhino tail or that demented serial killer chick holding the heart of a giraffe, I see red.  If there were a God he’d smite them with great vengeance and furious anger. But sadly there’s no god.

You won't be with the hunters

Exactly.

Survivors of rare wolf attack in Banff recount how animal tried to drag man from tent in middle of night | CBC News

Nobody cares.

 

There are some pretty smart folks who coined the term "Predator Spiral" , recorded in history, over & over.

Short form,  Unless they are  strictly population limited;

wolves eat ALL the Bambi and ALL the livestock, 

and reproduce at high rates. 

Wisconsin is saying 13% yearly,   

in the west they have been at 25%  YEARLY 

, when they have wolves eat ALL the Bambi and ALL the livestock,

They come into town.

 

Please read again the history at the wiki  Wolf hunting - Wikipedia

",,, Wolves have been actively hunted since 8,000 to 10,000 years ago, when they first began to pose a threat to livestock vital for the survival of Neolithic human communities.[2] Historically, the hunting of wolves was a huge capital- and manpower-intensive operation. The threat wolves posed to both livestock and people was considered significant enough to warrant the conscription of whole villages under threat of punishment, despite the disruption of economic activities and reduced taxes. ,,,

read the whole thing, I double dog dare ya. Some kid in India getting his face chewed off is too easy to ignore @3to1

, same with some campers .
