I live in northern Minnesota 90 miles from Canada. Last week a male timberwolf was hit and killed by a car in Meadowlands about 25 miles South of me . The wolf was radio taged in Michigan's upper pen . You guys in Mich got to quit sending these border jumping animals to us. True story kbjr 6 news.

That wolf was in Minnesota because he'd heard Timmy had fallen in the well and he was on his way to save him. Now we'll never know what happened to Timmy... :-(

Probably hit by a car with a bunch of electronics. Since the wolf had a radio collar, is it connected? :shock: :P

Wolves try to cross roads to show 'coons it can be done.

Dear Friends;
Here in ILLINOIS, I'm sure you have heard of our state (Chicago) we are told we only have small, furry, friendly animals. None of that other stuff. Although there has been sighting of DEAD Armadillos here and there. Mostly around Carbondale affectionately know as DOPE CITY. Some gunfire there recently too. Some speculation they are falling off Semis...? As the sightings picked up they made it illegal to shoot such animals. HMmmmnnnnn.?

Funny thing about wild animals. They usually don't have the habit of standing in the middle of open fields right next to interstate highways so people can see them. This is especially true of the predators that make their "living" sneaking up and prey animals.
