Interesting Mike,Here’s an interesting note to do with the collaring of wolves in gcreek’s area and more specifically the ones that are eating the Itcha caribou to non-existence.
Last count said the Itcha caribou herd was down to around 600 +/- animals from the 2600 or so counted not that many years ago.
Last winter/spring wolves were collared that were thought to be predating on the declining Mountain Caribou population.
10 packs were identified averaging 8 wolves per pack.
This numbers came strait from the guy that put on the collars.
Now factor in that each pack has added appr 6 pups and that there’s a handful of wolves floating thru the Itcha mountains that are off the collaring program radar and all of a sudden there’s around 150 wolves chewing on 600 caribou.
The collars aren’t going to do much to stop the downward spiral of that specific Mountain Caribou herd but the 2 in gcreek’s picture are done killing for good.
Too bad the government procrastinators can’t figure that out.
