The information code which is RNA/DNA is clearly the work of a single pair of hands. The same cannot be said of all living creatures on our planet either past or present. Mosquitos, biting flies, chiggers, ticks, the Sydney funnel-web and numerous other such could not plausibly evolve and quite obviously were not created by any sort of a loving God. These things were created for no other purpose than to inflict harm and suffering on higher creatures.

In fact one thing I read about the funnel-web is that a dog or cat could get bitten by one of the things and be little the worse for wear; the ******* thing was specifically designed to harm primates and/or humans.

Nonetheless as we observe here, there is no shortage of people who would view it as a mortal sin of sorts to get rid of one or all of these creatures.

The basic reality is that the "balance of nature(TM)" doesn't miss the tyrannosaur, and it would not miss the funnel-web.

Here's another view on the subject:

Wolves were actively hunted and killed in France during a large part of the 19th century, and became extinct in the country by the 1930's. Having once disappeared from France, wolves have now re-entered across the mountains from Italy, and are becoming established in the maritime Alps, in the Mercantour Parc.


Same stupid ****. Even the frogs were bright enough to figure this one out and now the same stupid shit4brains ewhacks are ******* the situation up there too.

However, a campaign has been launched by the "Sicherheit und Artenschutz" (Security and Species Protection) association to have the wolves shot because they may pose a danger to people. The group was set up by local hunters who say it is only a matter of time before someone gets hurt.


The irony!

Why not dig up the Autobahn? Way more people will be not hurt/killed.

I think that all hearts should be shot because it's only a matter of time until one of those hearts attacks and kills someone.

The situation in North American is quite different. In North America, no person has ever been killed by a healthy, wild wolf, and attacks are extremely rare. Most wild wolves avoid people, and even people who live in wolf country rarely actually see the animals. In fact, many wolf researchers who have approached wolf dens have found that they were able to do so without being approached by adult wolves.

However, wolf attacks are not unheard of in North America. In the past 25 years, five people have been bitten by wolves in Algonquin park in Ontario, Canada. Two of the more serious attacks happened during the 1990's. The first incident, which occurred in 1996, involved a wolf that bit an 11 year old boy and tried to pull him out of his sleeping bag. In 1998, a wolf grabbed an infant and tossed it before it was driven away. The same wolf had earlier tried to attack a four-year-old girl. In addition, in April, 2000, a six-year-old boy was bitten by a wolf at an Alaskan logging camp, and during the summer of 2000, a camper was bitten by a wolf on Vancouver Island.

All four of these attacks are believed to have been committed by habituated wolves, that is, wolves who had lost their fear of humans. The wolves involved in the Algonquin attacks had been fed and approached by people, and the wolf involved in the Vancouver Island attack had also been fed by people. Some wildlife biologists believe that the behaviour of the wolf involved in the attack on the Alaska boy was consistent with an animal that had been habituated to human food. Wild wolves typically fear people, but wolves who have learned that they can get food by raiding campsites or bothering people may lose their fear of them, and as a result, may begin to behave in an aggressive manner. Wolves who have been repeatedly approached by humans may also begin to lose their fear of them. So, while wolves are generally not dangerous to people, it is important for those who see wolves in the wild to not forget that wolves are no different from any other wild carnivore, and should therefore not be approached or fed.

This phenomenon is, or course, not limited to wolves. Any wild animal that has been fed or repeatedly approached by humans may lose fear of them and become dangerous. It is also important to keep these negative wolf-human encounters within a broader perspective. There are roughly 60 000 wolves in North America and the vast majority of them avoid human contact. Millions of people visit parks and wilderness areas each year that are inhabited by wolves and attacks remain extremely rare.

Just like grizzly bears, wolves see, hear and smell an incredibly large number of humans. As for bears, they would be easy pickins, really really easy pickins, but the facts tell us they just aren't interested.

Quote:

Candice Berner, 32, originally from Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania, was killed Monday evening near Chignik Bay, Alaska. The 4'11" special education teacher was taking a run on a remote road near the village of Chignik Bay
(105 population). State Troopers and others have said there is very little doubt that wolves killed Candice Berner.

Candice Berner was traveling between five communities teaching. She has just gotten to Chignik Bay on Monday. She left work and went for a run. Some snowmachiners saw a glove in the road and soon found Berner's body which had been dragged from the road and down a hill. It's been reported that many wolf tracks were around the body of Candice Berner. At least 2 wolves and as many as 4. Bob Berner, father of Candice, said the troopers told him that there appeared to be a struggle that lasted approx. 150 ft. before Berner went down. There were also signs that she was still alive as the wolf pack dragged her along. The wolves went for her throat, as many predators do, she did not die instantly.

Mr. Berner said he was told that she was running towards town and was about a mile and a half out. Experts say that the mere fact that she was running is sometimes enough for predators like wolves to attack. It is presumed that they were upon her before she knew they were there.

Mark McNay, a retired Fish and Game biologist, said the attack was highly unusual. It may be the first documented case of a fatal wolf attack made by healthy, wild wolves in Alaska.

Troopers and Fish and Game people are headed to the area to try and capture the wolves. They are anticipating 2-3 wolves are involved. Definitely more than 1 lone wolf. Local hunters however are have started hunting the wolves. No wolves have been killed yet and some hunters are beginning to bait the wolf pack with meat to get a good shot at them. Local hunters say they have had several sightings of the wolves.

Mr. Berner said his daughter, Candice Berner was doing what she loved and she liked Alaska. He holds no anger towards the wolf pack saying that they were just doing what nature drove them to do. Chignik Bay residents
are on alert and taking precautions until the threat of this wolf pack has ceased.

Candice Berner being killed by wolves has sparked the usual fights between those who want the wolves trapped or killed and those that want the people to move.

If she had even a little .38 revolver,
that 'd probably have been enuf to repel the attack.

@OmSigDAVID,
Do you recommend a .38 for those pedestrians hit by vehicles, David?

fact is, gunga, you share about half your genes with funnel web spiders and mosquitos. we all do. umm, i take that back. we do. You may share 80 or 90% with them.

Couldn't have hurt, but then if the wolves were really on top of her before she knew she had a problem, it likely wouldn't have helped much.

Even if she were able to pop a little .38 into the chest or face of a wolf
while he is biting her, it woud deter him and his fellows.
Admittedly, if u can 't use your own equipment,
then it will not do u much good.

I don't know, Jack. How can you be so sure that the DNA on Gunga's home planet is similar to us earthlings?

@gungasnake,
Ah, Gungasnake. The loving God B.S. What absolute tripe you talk. Every organism on this planet has evolved from a previous versions complete with its DNA - everything. Man or beast, so to speak. Eradicating things from various areas on this planet, simply vecause we could, may have been done at one time or another, but to argue mans right to have done so from any standpoint other than an apologetic one is the verbage of a cretin.

@Marc Hugo,
The ordinary little 60 - 80 lb south-48 wolf from yesteryear no longer exists. The wolf the lunatics are bringing in from Canada is the 160-lb Canadian wolf which is not only in no danger of extinction in its proper home in Canada, but is a gigantic threat to the lives of humans and their livestock in the states.

The people doing this **** are bullies and need to be treated as such.
