  •  So what? a couple wolves flip out and go on (0+ / 0-)

    killing spree. Maybe or Maybe not. I think it had to be more than 2 wolves for such a large number of sheep. That is rather unbelievable. I mean even serial killers or mass murderers have physical limitations to thier killing ability. If it was for fun I think being bone weary and in muscle pain from over activity surely would remove any fun from the activity. But then again I admit I am not a wolf.

    But any way SO WHAT if the rancher was compensated. WE don't set out to kill the entire human race because of GW Bush baby or Hitler or Pol Pot or the Khmer Rouge or Stalin or Truman (how many non-combatants died at Hiroshima and Nagasaki?)

    Personally I have lived on farms and dealt with predators. Perhaps the problem with sheep killing frenzy is that there was a disconnect in the upbringing of this wolf because of prior decimation by trying to hunt them to death. Look I have had cats who couldn't hunt thier way out of a bag. And I have had cats that were ace hunters. The difference was upbringing .. Mama taught the aces how to hunt.

    Killing off the older and stronger leaders of any animal group can lead to disconnect to learning limits or boundaries to behaviors.

    Its like the reintro of Condors... they had to train them without taming them. At least that is what I understand from what I have read.
