832F- Alpha Female Wolf of the Lamar Canyon Pack Shot and Killed.

“She is the most famous wolf in the world,” said Jimmy Jones, a wildlife photographer who lives in Los Angeles and whose portrait of 832F appears in the current issue of the magazine American Scientist. via New York Times

Yellowstone National Park’s most popular and favored wolf, valued by scientists who tracked her movements and loved by many tourists, was shot and killed on Thursday outside the park’s boundaries, Wyoming wildlife officials reported.
Did 832F have pups?

“The pack has at least four pups, two black and two gray, which were probably born about April 20. They make a great addition to the pack of nine, which also includes black 754M (brother of 755M), the gray 2-year-old females 776F and “Middle Gray,” and four yearlings (gray 820F, gray female, black male and black female). Unfortunately, the pack apparently lost a second black female yearling, who has not been seen since April.” via Kathy Lynch’s June 2012 Yellowstone Wolf Update

    And right now the trophy hunters, populist Michigan state politicians demonizing them, and those they have been able to frighten or trade influence with, are trying to ram home (in the lame duck session) a completely unnecessary, hunting season in the last major US state with a significant population of wolves, Michigan, where the packs are not being tattered by random hunting.Inexplicable except for a desire by some well-connected people make sure wolves are miserable, and are protected nowhere.

    A couple days after the DNR announced that in the Upper Peninsula where the wolves are the deer harvest was up 10% this year.

    Already pushed through the State senate and the House committee, all they have to do is vote in the House and it is on the Governor’s desk for his signature.

    I was very sad when I heard this news report. Wolves are being killed everywhere. In BC, Canada, there is a wolf killing contest going on right now, it is absolutely reprehensible!
