I recently heard of another person walking there dog around Butze and being followed around by a wolf. So someone from the ministry or wherever came and ‘disposed of’ the wolf. I just dont understand why the wolf had to be taken away and killed. There are signs that say not to walk your dog on the trail or its unsafe to walk your dog or walk your dog at your own risk…or something along those lines. The wolf is in its natural environment on a nature trail when a person comes through with a dog on a leash(or not). What do you think the wolf is going to do. Its a wild animal which eats other animals and a dog on a leash is an easy meal. So people who are stupid enough to take there dogs on the trail should just have to deal with a wolf in its natural environment. If you dont want to deal with the wolves walk your dog around town. Nobody feels bad for you if you get chased or if your dog gets eaten/attacked. We feel bad for the dog because its owner is a moron.
Would you go swimming in the ocean with a piece of tuna around your ankle and not expect to be possibly attacked by something?? Well its the same thing as walking your dog in a wolf’s natural habitat. Maybe we should ‘dispose of’ the owners and not the wolves as they are the ones causing the problems. Ive walked Butze hundreds of times and never had a wolf follow me. Use your heads people, maybe the signs at the head of the trail are there to be read and not ignored.
