Three wolves

Wednesday, February 18th, 2009

Logan and Arnie have managed to harvest three wolves so far this winter.  The first two are black, and the most recent one is grey.

The wolf population in Saskatchewan’s agriculture/forest fringe area has been increasing dramatically in recent years, to the point where predation on livestock is a problem in some areas.

Some people are opposed to trapping.  However I see it as a valid way to supplement an income, provided it is done in compliance with provincial legislation.  In fact the trappers that I know tend to have a good understanding of conservation biology, and see themselves as responsible stewards of our province’s renewable resources.

May they have continued success, and here’s hoping that fur prices increase.
