Who’s Afraid of a Big Bad Wolf?

     We were talking about wolves with Mike’s family the other day.  While I look forward to my encounters with wolves there are others who are not so comfortable with theirs.  I know there are times when wolves chase dogs and corner them into the front porch of their own house but those instances are the exception rather than the rule.  For the most part wolves are content to keep to themselves.

     Wolves are often misunderstood animals and I blame that on Little Red Riding Hood.  What child can’t tell the difference between a wolf and their grandmother?  While curiosity killed the cat I think it also has alot to do with a wolf’s behavior.  That and the fact wolves are constantly in search of their next meal.  Many animals fall victim to the mighty wolf predator and sometimes this may include a farmer’s livestock or popular game such as deer.  People are not prey to a wolf and human attacks are for the most part unheard of. 

     So who’s afraid of the big bad wolf?  That’s a question authorities in Minnesota are offering a $1000 reward to find out.  If you have any information regarding the killing of two wolves then please help out.  A T.I.P. phone number is 1-800-652-9093.   Besides, who can blame a wolf for blowing down the only thing between it and a meal of ham or bacon?
