    I did like that they clarified that no charges for killing a protected species were expected since there was absolutely no reasonable expectation that a wolf would be in Kentucky.

    That was only fair on there part, and they would have a hard time finding some one who wouldnt see it that way. Im sure now we will all have to look at the picture comparing a Wolf to a Yote from now on in every hunting guide and katie bar the door if someone kills another one.

    I wonder what would happen of some one killed another one? If it was captive like they suggest I would think it likely that there may be more. Kinda curious that it was worded that way. Would think that it would just say "no charges are being filed" kinda makes you think that if there was a second one killed they would pursue charges. I know they don't say they would, just worded kinda vague. Also surprised that there was some tagged that made it into Missouri.

    I think it pretty well sucks that they confiscated his hide. He should be allowed to keep it.

    I sure hope that was an anomaly. I don't want to see wolves setting up shop in Kentucky. Coyotes are bad enough.

    Outdoor life is doing an article on it in their September article and our phone has been ringing all morning. CBS NBC and others wanted to interview us but, we declined because James is Amish and can't be on tv

    But the Amish Mafia guys are on TV....:confused: I think you should try to get your hide back, like the KDFWR said it was a freak occurance so its not like you poached it. Would have made a hell of a
    conversation peice in a full body mount.

    Yeh that is a bunch of crap! I'd be jumpin up and down trying to get that hide! That's a once in a lifetime chance. I just can't understand their reasoning in keeping it in the first place.

    It will probably be mounted and put in a SLATO Center or in some big wigs of F@WLD home

    Though we saw one from the Houseboat on Nolin around the cave area borders late in the evening. No glass to bring it up close.

    I believe some coyotes have been tested and have had some wolf genes in their DNA. Not in Kentucky but in local Midwest states.


    And how did a wolf live in Kentucky all these years without anyone in the state or any biologist knowing about it ? Where did it come from I wonder ?


    Does the KDFWR think there could be other wolves in KY or do they think this Wolf may have been in a pack with others ?
