Wolf Warnings

In a move to show that the US government doesn’t just hate polar bears. Wolves are increasingly likely to be targeted as well.

National Geographic is warning that there is a proposal on the table to remove wolves from the endangered species list.

Last week the U.S. government proposed removing the animals from the endangered species list, citing a healthy rebound in numbers since wolves were reintroduced to the area in the mid-1990s.

If the proposal passes, within a year state rather than federal officials will be in charge of managing the gray wolves.

The move has many conservationists howling, because leaders in three of the affected states have said that they will reinstate wolf hunting.

Perhaps Dick Cheney got tired of quail, deer and lawyers.

But this isn’t the only wolf warning being propagated.

In Canada, officials are wondering if little red riding hood school children are safe from the predatory canines

An increase in the number of recent wolf sightings in and around Iqaluit has led school officials to issue a warning to students and parents.

Iqaluit residents have been warned about an increase in the number of wolves seen in the area.

Superintendent of schools Mike Ludike says Nunavut’s Education Department issued the warning because local hunters and trappers believe the wolves are hungry and could be a threat to pets, children and even adults.

Just as long as the wolves don’t start showing up in drag, they may be OK.

And finally, for further Wolf Warning weirdness I’ll just nudge you in this direction.
