Never heard of it. I'll have to study up. :) 'tis possible to learn something new every day.

What I meant was "Reel fortunate" was saying "strick 9" .. and I was trying to clarify that that is "strychnine". Lot easier to look up spelt more betterly. :)

I somewhat doubt they'll ever tell us what poison was used on those wolves and the, er, "collateral damage" around them. Don't want to give people, especially potential copy-cat people, ideas. The only way to do what was done without getting caught is to do it solo and not speak a word to anyone. Most people can't do that but some can. .. as I type that, makes me wonder if it could be someone within gov't, maybe a predator control specialist who has access to the necessary materials and no love for wolves. Such a person would be in a perfect position to do the job and redirect attention. Could also be a tree hugger with an agenda .. maybe looking to get the feds to restore protection. I bet we'll never know.

Yep, the Government trapper in our local area went to the poison back in the day, probably 60's, my Dad ran hounds and when he lost a dog he would call him up and tell him to pull his poison sets until the dog was recovered. They had a few heated discussions until it was banned.

I have a feeling this was a rancher in the area that will never be found, cause snitches get stitches.

Is that the same stuff they put down vole/gopher holes? I heard they had to ban it because geese were eating it and dying or something like that...
Different stuff.

Temik is actually a fungicide used on cotton plants etc..

"Oregon's wolves are in extreme danger from illegal killings..."

Reminds me of the final scenes from A Few Good Men.

"I felt his life might be in danger..."
"Grave danger?"
"Is there another kind?"
