Now that the rules have changed, if a wolf threatens your dog you are allowed to kill it Would you kill the wolf if it threatened your dog? Think about it, they are basically the same animal! do you like this rule?

I do not have a dog right now but if a wolf did attack my dog then I would say that my dog was in the wrong place at that them. We humans are taking over the places where wild animals should be able to roam and live fee so they are just trying to do what you would do if an intruder were to try and get into your house. If someone were to try and break into your house would you just let them or try to prevent them in any way that you could? There are to many people that look for any excuse to kill wild animals just because they are afraid of the wild animal. I think that most wild animals are ore afraid of them than we are of the wild animals.

Yes, but what if you did have a dog. Would your perspective change? I would do anything in the world to protect my dog. I love him too much to watch a wolf kill him!

If you live in an area that wolves are known to be then it would be the best for you to either keep your dog on a leash of in a fenced area or your house so that the wolves do not have a chance to harm either your dog(s) or any humans. That would be doing something proactive to protect both your dog(s) and the wolves.

I agree with you, though sometimes your pet may get loose. That would be just devastating to me, to lose my dog to a wolf. I wouldnt be able to watch something like that occur

A wolf is a wild animal, just like a coyote, they kill to eat. I would not have a problem shooting a wolf if it were attacking my dog or threatening a member of my family. It is not someone's pet that I am aiming at.

I like how you think, But just like the guy said above there are other ways to keep the wolves away! Killing them wont keep them away.

If a wolf were threatening my dog or my family, I would kiil it if it were not choice. Wolves are wild animals and not at all like dogs. It would be very dangerous to keep wolves as pets as they might turn on you. Do you really mean that you would let that wolf kill your dog? What if it were to turn on your child or a neighborhood child? Say shoo! and throw a rock, making sure you did not hit it? What good would that do?

I would think that its threatening my dog is one step closer to threatening me - if it were safe to do so and I was equipped to do so I would likely shoot the animal, or at least sound off the weapon to frighten it away.

I would do anytihng in my power to protect my dog, as he would do for me. He once charged a bull to protect my aunt! I dont care what kind of animal it is, if its trying to hurt my best friend, I will take any measures i need too! If I could protet my dog, and not kill the wolf, i would try.

Killing would be a last resort. I would deffiently try and scare if off first if that was possible...I am having sort of the same problem....there is what looks like a panther baby coming into our yard and growling and hissing and sometimes jumping on our cat(s)all we do is scare it off....but at the same time by doing this the panther baby knows that we aren't going to do anythingelse so it is getting more use to people...which isn't a good thing. So it is a judgement call I guess because you don't want the wolf jumping on your dog or getting use to humans

One of my neighbours has a wolf as a pet. A real sibirian white wolf. It's beautiful, very smart, and obediant. Well, if a wolf would attack my dog, I'd kill it. Now, I mean attack, as in, if he went for a bite of my dogs neck, and got too close. Otherwise I'd shoot near him to try to scare him off. But as I said, if he got too close of ripping my dog apart, I'd kill it without a doubt in my mind. Just as I would kill any living, breathing human that would try to attack/kill any member of my family.

There is a chap here in UK that raised and lived with a wolf pack, lived as them, though he had to remove the preys liver, cook it and reinsert it, as raw deer liver is poisonous to humans, in order to maintain his status as leader. Although he suffered many cuts, he found that the wolves saliva where they licked the wound had remarkable healing properties. He left the pack to assist a Polish farmer whose flock was being attacked by wolves and by setting up speakers around the farm and playing warning wolf howls he could keep the wolves away from the farm. When he returned to the pack, he was again accepted although as a lower status wolf. Of course, this is not too much help if your dog is confronted by a wolf, in that situation I would try other means, depending upon what was at hand, fire, loud noises, etc spring to mind but it that failed, then yes I would kill the wolf. all the best urban

Threatens in what way. Where my dog's life is in danger or just that it is howling at my dog or growling at it. I would not kill a wolf cause I really wouldn't know how. I'd probably end up getting myself in the middle of it. Though I would do anything to protect my dog, and if that meant killing it. Then that is what I would attempt to do. But I've never killed anything in my life so I would hope that I would never have to do that.

I wouldn't. Espeically not if there was another way. I mean they have a family struckture, and whatnot. Killing a wolf isn't just ending it. You do end up hurting the entire pack.

I would try to scare it away first because it would scare the crap out of me to begin with. If I couldn't scare it away I would probably run. I don't know that I could kill an animal, wolf or not. I hope my pup could hold her own. She is a black lab so she isn't exactly little, but she's a lover.
