Letter: Beware, wolves are dangerous for livestock, pets and humans

Packs of wolves are dangerous to animals both domestic and wild and to humans. They deserve their reputation found in folklore and the Bible.

It will be only a short distance from the wolf release point to the residential area of Stagecoach. If you live there, it’s easy to look around and think of wolf habitat. You are living in an ideal area, and your pets are easy and plentiful prey. You and your children are not entirely safe — especially when hiking alone, more so if you are older and slower.

Wolves don’t care whom they kill, and they don’t need to be hungry. Given the opportunity, they will kill.

People living at Stagecoach need to take warning and take steps to protect themselves, their loved ones and their pets. Wolves are dangerous.
