In 1871 in Dalhousie Township the deer disappeared and Archibald Browning decided to put an end to it by going on a hunting spree in 1873.
One of the wolves he caught was over 3 feet high, 6 feet long and weighed over 80 pounds. It was purchased by the Museum of Natural History in Montreal.
Browning ended up killing 72 wolves 70 bears to save the deer population in Dalhousie Township.

What were that many predators eating if there were no deer around?

thats a big animal...interesting that they have been reintroduced to try to restore natural harmony and balance.

No, the real reason they were re-introduced was to stop/reduce people from hunting. This has been successful. The wols have decimated the elk herds where they have taken up residence. If I remember correctly, the original studies of "natural harmony" was based on only 66 mating pairs of wolfs. The are now more than 4,000 mating pairs. Plus the introduced the Alaskan wolf which is a much larger species than the Rocky Mt wolfs that used to be there.

slim....we have seen the docos about yellowstone and how it is now healthier than ever....there is a tie in with otters,willows,deer and the wolf fits in somewhere too. .....
as to what they were eating....anything that moved slow enough to catch would be a safe bet.

dont panic...if your fellas are anything like our lot,as soon as farmers livestock gets eaten all protection will go out the window again. Scratch or better still say the wolves are behind the voters who elected Trump...that will be sure to rile up a few and put them on the hit list...... maybe Putin is behind it all????
really had to laugh about the red haired Rusky woman who wev'e been seeing plastered all over the news.....she is in the USA backing the NRA etc and the press saying she is rusky spy/activist......now think about it Scratch Scratch why in blazes would the ruskies or indeed ANY govt opposed to the USA plant person to HELP KEEP YOU LOT ARMED Scratch Scratch that makes absolutely no sense,if she was prodisarming maybe Sad Sad
