In this man's studies he observed that the wolf population bred with the amount of game that was around. If there was a low amount of deer or whatever else they hunted to eat, then only the Alpha male and female bred to keep the pack going but did not over-breed cause the game was not there to feed them all. This makes a lot of sense to me.
If we want to talk about a predator that kills without regards to anything, then let's talk about the human. Don't get me wrong I support hunting but only if you use what you kill. People who kill just for the big rack or the hell of it have no right to be out hunting. I have heard people brag about a deer or two they shot over on Prince of Wales. The sad thing was they shot the deer just to shoot it then left the carcass to go to waste.
I would like to know who really is to blame for the over-kill of deer (and other animals). I do not think you can put the full blame on the wolf population. I also have always thought that the wolf hunts and kills the weak and lame. Am I wrong?
The other question I have is, has there ever been a reported wolf attack on humans involving a healthy wolf? Not one that has been sick or injured in some way. Can anyone answer that question for me?
