My dad's birthday is in 7 weeks. He would have been 85. And 5 days before my dad's birthday is the day I had to put my 19 year old cat, Cricket, down. 2006 was the worst year of my life.

Giant Idaho Wolves Hunt, Kill In Packs Of Up To 20

The Canadian Gray Wolf runs in packs of up to twenty wolves. For every one animal they kill to eat, these Canadian wolves kill about three more just for the fun of it. The biologists call it "sport-reflex killing" or "lustful killing". The Canadian Gray Wolf is a killing machine.

These are federal wolves, as it was the federal government who introduced them into Idaho over our objections. They told the state of Idaho that the wolves would be considered recovered when we had a total of 100 wolves in Idaho. Now we have between 800 and 2,000 wolves and the situation is out of control.
Idaho's wolf emergency is a state issue. And in this situation, the state of Idaho has both a duty and the authority to protect its people and their property. House Bill 343 lays out the facts, the argument and the authority to do so. - Idaho Rep Phil Hart
 
What some humans won't say to get their things own way. Liars. The worst killers on earth stand on two legs. Sorry Nuggler, I don't mean to agree with you, it just happens sometimes.

That's what made the whole story so absurd. The guy has done a good amount of legitimately helpful stuff, so why the need to 'embellish' it? Apparently the pivotal elements of his story are not, shall we say, accurate.

His former associate John Krakauer (sp?) seemed pretty decent about it, acknowledging the good he has done while not condoning his fabrications.

Like Jade, I think maybe the inspiration and joy might have a life of their own, indpendent of the apparent facts. But those facts are sad, indeed. I should Google up a link but too lazy, but it does appear that Mortinson made up a good share of his tale. A shame.
