    Alaska wolves 'killed' US teacher out jogging

    Alaska wolves 'killed' US teacher out jogging


    Colleagues said Candice Berner was determined to experience Alaska

    Wolves in Alaska are suspected of killing a teacher in an isolated village while she was out jogging.

    An autopsy has revealed that Candice Berner, 32, died of injuries sustained in an animal attack, officials said.

    Her body was dragged off a rural road, leaving a bloody track, into the nearby bush and was surrounded by wolf tracks.

    Police said wolves in the area had been aggressive recently. If confirmed, it is believed to be the first fatal wolf attack in the US in 50 years.

    There were wolf tracks all around the body

    The Alaska State Medical Examiner said Ms Berner's cause of death was "multiple injuries due to animal mauling".

    Her body was found on Monday evening by snowmobilers after she was last seen that afternoon at her school in Chignik Lake, a community of about 100 people 474 miles (760km) south of Anchorage.

    Col Audie Holloway, of the Alaska State Troopers, said: "There's no other carnivores in that area that are out and active.

    "There were wolf tracks all around the body, and drag marks associated with those tracks."

    "From the number of prints at the scene, we're thinking there probably were, possibly, two, three, maybe four [wolves]," he added.
    Wolves are generally very timid around humans

    Ms Berner - who had been training for long-distance running - moved to Alaska from Pennsylvania in August.

    She was working as a special needs teacher in Chignik Lake.

    The community had recently been on alert for wolves on the prowl nearby, said Johnny Lind, president of the village council.

    In the last week, school children were being accompanied to school and armed snowmobile patrols had been on the lookout for the animals, he said.

    "It's obvious. Goodness. It's obvious," said Mr Lind, referring to suspicion of wolves' involvement in Ms Berner's death.

    I think that they stopped paying bounty so serves them right.
    Pay the fucking bounty and people will go out and earn an honest living.
    Thats what honest trappers and hunters do, but they were keeping them under control and the tree huggers raised so much hell that bush pilots and helo co. stopped shooting the bastards.

    Clearly Sir, you know nothing about wolves if you think they are a load of bastards who need to be shot.

    It also seems that an honest way of living to you is to kill and hunt down other animals purely for 'control' purposes. Im no tree hugger, but you should be quite ashamed.

    Do they have natural predators? If not, how else are you gonna control them?

    Fuck it. I'll do it....

    I think the meat from wolves would be a bit sinewy all that exercise and all.

    Should do that with the soi dogs here too.
    But as long as there was a bounty on wolves they were under control, once in a while a moose will kill one but 9 out of 10 it is the moose that dies.
    When ever a predator gets out of control it is the human that has to control them, and it is done with bullets or poison, or leg hold traps, I have used all 3 to collect bountys or sell the pelts.
    Watch and you will see a bounty back on them before to much longer as this is not the first human to be killed by wolves in the recent past and soon Grizzles will also be on the bounty list.

    If you mean brought to extinction, yes. Humans are very efficient at eliminating our competitors.

    Yes it is. From the article, "it is believed to be the first fatal wolf attack in the US in 50 years"

    And who will "control" us, the most foolish predator on the planet? I'll give you a hint: the system has a way of balancing itself, sooner or later.

    Maybe US, but I think not as my wife was watching Nat Geo the other night and I saw where some young dude had went out for some exercise after getting off work at a remote camp and did not return, they went out and found his chewed up carcase and wolves had killed him, I just do not remember where it was.

    so check these out and you will learn.

    You might lay down and let a Bear or Wolf or Moose or a pack of soi dogs have their way with you, but not I, as long as I or 99 out of 100 other humans or animals will not let our life go as easily as you seem to think you would.
    You should go out with Sea Shepard and put your life on the line as soon as you can and that way you will quit using natural resources that the rest of us need to stay alive, as that seems to be important to us more than it is you.
    Or you could do like that other idiot who thought that Grizzlies were not dangerous, but they ate him so he fucked up.
