I know this is 2 days old but I have been busy the last 3 days and I feel that even if you have already seen this, it’s worth a second look. Wild Earth Gaurdians just republished a resent report showing the overall numbers for livestock, specifically cattle and sheep, and what has contributed to their death in 2010. The findings show, just like I have posted on here before, that overall, wolves have killed less than a quarter of 1% or .0020% of the total cattle population. Also, as I have reported before domestic dogs are responsible for killing 3X more cattle than wolves. Just to be clear, I LOVE dogs and am in no way trying to put blame on them or cast them in a negative light, but I think this statistic is very eye opening to those who are uninformed. Another area I found interesting is that 12% of cattle deaths are caused by weather and another 4% by disease. If ranchers took the time, energy, and money they use on their anti-wolf campaigns and applied it to those categories, they might be able to find more effective ways to preserve their cattle. The last thing I would like to point out in the study is that coyotes are by far the largest carnivores killer of livestock. I know it has been mentioned before but can this whole rancher/wolf problem be a case of mistaken identity? Anyway, if you want to read the entire report, click the link below. Let me know what you think when you are done looking it over.
