Of the Stated 5,000, Minnesota has over 3,000 Wolves alone. More then any state in the lower 48. Seems a bite lopsided. Please take some of ours and spread the Joy!  :mad1:

Has Canada ever stated what their wolf population is?

If there wasn't a line between Laws it may matter?

I was just wondering if they wander back and forth across the border, or the numbers shift. I don't understand why we have so many here, and not (?) up there?

I'm sure the Wolves like some Moose and Elk move back and forth across the boarder. Depends on where the pickens is the best! Just like the southern boarder!     ;)

AND! 
Biologists believe that more than 5,500 gray wolves remain in the lower 48 states. Currently, populations exist in Alaska, Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan.
 
Since almost all states have Deer in them of one kind or another and only 7 states have recorded Wolves. That means, there are 43 states with deer that seem to be getting along nicely without Wolves and their not all dying of CWD!  :deer: :bambi: :moose105:   :bonk: :bonk: :doah:

Minnesota by far has the highest amount of Wolves then any state in the lower 48! 
Share the Joy around!  :happy1:

I found this amazing and somewhat amusing when one kept looking at the various outlets running the story. Interesting the closer one got to the areas where the moose & wolves actually are that the whole story was reported whereas when one looked closer to say the TC the info about the wolves role in moose mortality was frequently glossed over or omitted altogether.

If wolves are so great then they need to be reintroduced to all the states.   And the historic Grizzly population needs to be restored in California.

Yup. Wolves in Florida. They can compete with the agigators and crorkindills for those tasty trailer park retirees. *CHOMP*CHOMP*
