nice photo of the red-wolf –
i presume this is a F, and she is captive?
[the wear on her nose from sticking it thru a fence
and rubbing the hair off in a chatter-pattern, like
a sander improperly applied to wood]
Yeh, with the best zoom and a tasty carcass it may be rather easy, with some luck. There are tougher creatures to be photographed than the wolf in the nature (for instance my grandpa’s big ol’ lazyworm) -lol-
Please tell is the book worth ordering, when having checked it.
I’m lookin’ forward to it while my caninelibrary is getting old.
Penin Kulmilla, I don’t have anything against Ray Coppinger as a person(or his wife Lorna)–in fact some of my friends who have met him(that work at Wolf Park in Indiana where he got some of his narrow impressions of wolves) say he is very interesting and a lot of fun in person. I have not met him, but his dog domestication book drives me BONKERS!(and his lecturing and T. V. documentaries on the subject–he uses a kind of verbal bullying to get his ideas across, rather than real evidence or science). It is just SO WRONG in so many ways–about wolves, about hunting dogs(as in dogs used for hunting) about anthropology and archaeology and blatant evidence contrary to his views that has been around for decades and which he just ignores, or is ignorant of–no excuse for someone proposing an entirely new theory on dog domestication! It is frustrating to me how quickly his poorly thought out, lack of common sense ideas got accepted so readily, and you cannot look up dog domestication anywhere now without his(very incorrect) “theory” being given serious attention, or totally displacing all previous theory and evidence. That ain’t science, but politics. But at LAST, some voices of reason are questionning his weak, weak proposals–it’s just taken a decade to finally occur!
