No, not really

Wolves have been hunted since white settlers moved into western states

I’m really very sure that the Indians hunted them too. Maybe not as successfully but still.

  1. No, not really. Certainly not all tribes. The Ojibwe certainly opposed hunting them. I think they believed they were ancestors returned, or something.

  2. Nah, they used them as dance partners. I’ve seen it in a Kevin Costner movie so it must be true.

  3. Since Americans have a constitutional right to bear arms, no doubt a handy RPG 7 or some such would be available if the damned things began to make a nuisance of themselves.

    As Blood so nicely put it, ‘Whatever happens we have got, the Maxim gun and they have not.’

  4. Just been camping in the middle of nowhere, the wolves howling in the night sends a shiver down the spine

    Yes. I’d imagine Injuns only ‘hunted’ wolves that came into camp

    UK: Henry V (?) paid a chap to kill all wolves in GB. Hence wool capital of world and our sheep dogs very different to EU & RoW

  6. That’s right, Worstall. Indians were in tune with nature. All bliss, all the time. Til White Man came and messed it all up.

    That’s what I read in National Geographic every month. It’s so formulaic: this place was great; Man is messing it all up.
