Wild Predator Invasion

You can watch the 53 min. program online here.

An interesting program that documents the controversial practice of stocking more predators in place of hunting.

(Date Stamp 2:20)
Doug Smith’s 1995 stocking of 31 Canadian wolves into Yellowstone NP which (Date Stamp 11:20) caused a 90% decline in coyote population.

(Date Stamp 20:50)
Dave Onorato’s 1995 stocking of 8 Texas Cougars into Florida which (Date Stamp 38:20) <span style="font-style: italic">“…will require the establishment of additional populations at least somewhere in the southeastern U.S.”</span> like AR, LA, MS, AL & GA linked thru <span style="font-style: italic">“…protected corridors of wilderness… It is these kinds of long corridors that have become the most controversial part of the predator release project across the world”. </span>

(Date Stamp 39:30)
Claudio Groff’s 1999-2002 stocking of 10 brown bears from Slovenia into Italy causing the population to grow from 3 into 40 where they have now spread into 5 countries and are threatening villager’s livelihoods and personal safety.

Last week my buddy's brother got stuck on I80 for over an hour because a truck loaded with coyotes was broke down.He said they just let them go right there.

Hey, this is the slippery slope that’s coming for hunters, don’t shoot the messenger.

Are you now suggesting we stock Canadian wolves to reduce our perceived coyote problem?

I hope you are not blaming the Slovak bears for our bear success story. Alt could be a trimmed down Slavish name but I don't really know. Waugh!

By any chance did he tell you if they were the State Farm breed or the Allstate breed? If they were the Allstate breed could you please tell at which mile marker because they have the best pelts with a soft under fur that makes great trim for fawn skin jackets. Thanks in advance. Waugh!

Re: Wild Predator Invasion

I think he was scared by a predator when he was a child and it had a great negative effect on him.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: Wild Predator Invasion

About a 45 minute discussion on a predation study by the GC BOC today. Not a repeat of the 2001 study. larger, more areas, and with a 4 million dollars, and a five year term price tag.

Is your position a short term gain - or a long term loss? Separate the issues.

Re: Wild Predator Invasion

Mebbe when he was a little tyke, he had a teddy with sharp teeth?



Yep, predators are a real threat to many sorts of game critters and wildlife in general, but I think some folks are a bit over extended on this subject, as it relates to current conditions in PA?

Othe than the glut of real bears with sharp teeth that we have now?

Re: Wild Predator Invasion

Predators definitely have killed and are killing more deer than CWD.
