Lamar Canyon Pack Pups Playing - Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming


Sometime a photographer sees a lot more than he can adequately photograph. These pups were too far away and I was shooting into the sun, but I enjoyed watching them play for over an hour about a month ago.
I took lots of photos that are good enough for this blog, but will not be sharp enough to enlarge to any size.

Right now in Idaho, where I live, pups like these are being shot, trapped, and snared by the neck in the Idaho Fish and Game Department's War On Wolves. The department, at the request of Idaho Governor Butch Otter, is going to kill over 600 wolves this winter out of a total number of about 850. I have always been a moderate on wolves, but this is not good management.   It is a callous disregard for anything close to fair chase and good game management practice. Treating wolves this way is criminal.
