I am beginning to get an inkling of the sense of fun that trolls get.

 I am not against hunting. As a recreational pastime and as a source of food it is fine. Attempting to exterminate an indigenous species out of misguided hatred is just redneck.   Pretending you are doing it to protect your family is pathetic.

Alan Freshwater‎ to Kill ALL The Wolves

Before you kill all the wolves, learn to read, then read up on the trophic cascade effect.

Bob Henry Read this!!! Fuck off 
  • Alan Freshwater Sorry. I meant learn to read big words.

    Kill ALL The Wolves Trophic Cascade is a fairy tale dreamed up by Dr. Mech who himself said it’s not true. Maybe you should learn to read and keep up on current events you stupid fuck?
    • Alan Freshwater Your argument is challenged by studies accumulating since the reintroduction of gray wolves (Canis lupus) to Yellowstone National Park. The gray wolf, after being extirpated in the 1920s and absent for 70 years, was reintroduced to the Park in 1995 and 1996. Since then a three-tiered trophic cascade has been reestablished involving wolves, elk (Cervus elaphus), and woody browse species such as aspen (Populus tremuloides), cottonwoods (Populus spp.), and willows (Salix spp.). Mechanisms likely include actual wolf predation of elk, which reduces their numbers, and the threat of predation, which alters elk behavior and feeding habits, resulting in these plant species being released from intensive browsing pressure. Subsequently, their survival and recruitment rates have significantly increased in some places within Yellowstone’s northern range. This effect is particularly noted among the range’s riparian plant communities, with upland communities only recently beginning to show similar signs of recovery.[20]

Examples of this phenomenon include:

A 2-3 fold increase in deciduous woody vegetation cover, mostly of willow, in the Soda Butte Creek area between 1995 and 1999.[21]
Heights of the tallest willows in the Gallatin River valley increasing from 75 cm to 200 cm between 1998 and 2002.[22]
Heights of the tallest willows in the Blacktail Creek area increased from less than 50 cm to more than 250 cm between 1997 and 2003. Additionally, canopy cover over streams increased significantly, from only 5% to a range of 14-73%.[23]
In the northern range, tall deciduous woody vegetation cover increased by 170% between 1991 and 2006.[24]
In the Lamar and Soda Butte Valleys the number of young cottonwood trees that had been successfully recruited went from 0 to 156 between 2001 and 2010.[20]
Trophic cascades also impact the biodiversity of ecosystems, and when examined from that perspective wolves appear to be having multiple, positive cascading impacts on the biodiversity of Yellowstone National Park. These impacts include:

Scavengers, such as ravens (Corvus corax), bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus), and even grizzly bears (Ursus arctos horribilis), are likely subsidized by the carcasses of wolf kills.[25]
In the northern range, the relative abundance of six out of seven native songbirds which utilize willow was found to be greater in areas of willow recovery as opposed to those where willows remained suppressed.[24]
Bison (Bison bison) numbers in the northern range have been steadily increasing as elk numbers have declined, presumably due to a decrease in interspecific competition between the two species.[26]
Importantly, the number of beaver (Castor canadensis) colonies in the Park has increased from one in 1996 to twelve in 2009. The recovery is likely due to the increase in willow availability, as they have been feeding almost exclusively on it. As keystone species, the resurgence of beaver is a critical event for the region. The presence of beavers has been shown to positively impact streambank erosion, sediment retention, water tables, nutrient cycling, and both the diversity and abundance of plant and animal life among riparian communities.[20]
There are a number of other examples of trophic cascades involving large terrestrial mammals,

  • Alan Freshwater And you will notice I responded calmly and intelligently without recourse to swearing.
  • The RAT Patrol And you will notice nobody gives a FUCK what you ARA trolls have to say.
  • Kill ALL The Wolves LMFAO You are quoting the bullshit beaver lie. You are one stupid bastard. The beavers were transplanted there by the biologists so they could say “oh look our bullshit theory of trophic cascade is true” then the wolves killed the beavers. Is all lies and propaganda and you are stupid enough to believe it. So we will continue to kill every filthy vermin wolf we see and you can go fuck yourself.
  • Simon Gregg Interesting. Do you have a source for the beaver relocation lie?
  • Henry the Horse Yes. Your mother. Her beaver was relocated around my cock.
  • Simon Gregg Yeah. She told me that you didn’t have a clue how to use it. But at least you’re not a virgin any more.

  • Kill ALL The Wolves The beaver lie is that the wolves made them come back you pole smoking homo. Matters not at this point though as we just kill every wolf we see. 
  • Simon Gregg The report doesn’t say that the wolves MADE the beavers come back. They increased in number because, once the elk had been reduced in number, the environment recovered to the point where the habitat could support more beavers. Beavers are preyed on by wolves so it’s hardly likely that the wolves made them come back. That is how a trophic cascade works. Improve the primary producer level in the ecosystem, and the primary consumers will have more to eat. This results in their numbers increasing which allows for an increase in secondary and tertiary consumers. If you remove the top predators from the system, the larger primary and secondary consumers have nothing to hold them in balance. The ecosystem will suffer as was shown in Yellowstone park after the wolves were wiped out in the 1920s. The system evolved in balance for millions of years before a bunch of European refugees with big guns and no balls messed it all up in a couple of centuries.
  • Alan Freshwater Told, you. Big words are hard . He even thinks homo is a four letter word. – and that it is an insult.
  • Simon Gregg Probably hasn’t evolved beyond the homo erectus stage.
  • Alan Freshwater I am not sure of that even. I suspect I hear the sound of knuckles scraping on the ground.
    • Alan Freshwater I am not against hunting. As a recreational pastime and as a source of food it is fine. Attempting to exterminate an indigenous species out of misguided hatred is just redneck. Pretending you are doing it to protect your family is pathetic.
    • Kill ALL The Wolves I am well aware of what your fairy tale of trophic cascade says and it’s all a bullshit lie. These wolves are not native here you stinking jackass. Go suck some more cocks and shut the fuck up!
    • Alan Freshwater Finish the sentence… “if I only…”

About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.

    VICTORY> message from Facebook.
    We reviewed the page you reported for harassment. Since it violated our Community Standards, we removed it. Thanks for your report. We let Kill ALL The Wolves know that their Page has been removed, but not who reported it. Facebook never discloses who submits a report.

    Therapeutic isn’t it?
    I find it sad that anyone can go on at such length with that behaviour without getting the point.
    Particularly as the local Fish and Game no doubt know who he is and are chortling over the prosecution possibilities.
    Assuming of course that he is not actually a small child who has never fired a gun in his life.

    You certainly find some interesting people to talk to. So sad that their only way to argue is to use filth, bile, hatred, fear and bullying. Perhaps that’s the only way they get excitement out of life. Really sad.
