Default Hunter shoots wolf in self defense

Hunter shoots wolf in self defense
By Associated Press - 05/30/08
KALISPELL (AP) — A man hunting black bear shot and killed a wolf near Olney, northwest of Whitefish.

Zachary Harms of Kalispell was driving his truck up a forest road Tuesday when he saw movement. He walked along the road with his rifle, thinking he may have seen a black bear.

Two wolves then ran out from the side of the road. One ran across the road and up the hillside. The other ran down the road towards Harms. The wolf closed to approximately 10 feet and Harms fired, hitting the female wolf in the front of the head.

The hunter contacted the sheriff’s office later that day and reported he had killed a wolf. Two state game wardens investigated, and determined the shooting was in self-defense and was allowed under state law.

Hmm, two wolves eh, sounds more like Obama and Hillary. One slinking off and the other baring teeth. Decide which is which yourselves....

I would have toon Michigan wolves are highly protected. So is the black missaugee rattler. They really didn't like the day a man called and then closed a black bear cub in a phone booth. They found him.
We track the elk herd with radio collars. One day they noticed an elk was travling down interstate I75 at 70 mph. They cought him.
