I'm not going to second guess this but are those REAL?
when the crow dips, you have luck sometimes maybe.

Nice photo, but story is COMPLETELY false and a lie. These were taken in Canada I believe and a couple of years old.

Just thought I'd share the facts, nothing against you NotEnufTags for the post. :thumb

Brett is correct. This pic is a couple years old and the wolves in the pic were taken in Canada.

HOWEVER...it's pretty cool that an open season is now in affect!

No worries NotEnuf.....I've actually been emailed that same pic on more than one occassion with different stories behind it EVERY time. It's funny...and pretty sad....that everything you get nowadays has to be scrutinized for legitimacy...and then you are not always sure of the truth.

With that being said, I still encourage the posting of these emails. It sure helps to weed out the lies in a lot of cases and helps keep people a little more educated on what is true and what may not be.

Been burned a few times now. It's hard to know what to believe anymore.

LOL...yea, I was wondering the same thing Antlers. I would pay money to watch one of the tree-huggers try to release a live wolf from a leg trap!

Quite a few years back we were riding 4-wheelers down a rural dirt road and came across a female coyote in a leg trap. It was early summer and we figured she had pups around. As much as I didn't know about coyotes back then I could not stand to see her suffer. Lets just say that is a trick I would never attempt again or recommend..........
