In order to find your Wolf Opinion Profile, let's assume the following about the photos above:

On the left, Photo A shows Wolf A living free in the wild,
without contact or conflict with humans, livestock, or pets.

On the right, Photo B shows the injury caused by the failed attack
by Wolf B on a cow (without knowing how the attack was repelled).

Question:

In an ideal world, how would you want these two wolves to be treated?

Your Answer:

  1. Both Wolf A and Wolf B should be allowed to live free.
  2. Wolf A should be allowed to live free. Non-lethal methods should be used to deter Wolf B from livestock-production areas.
  3. Wolf A should be allowed to live free. Wolf B should be killed if non-lethal Best Management Practices (BMPs) fail.
  4. Wolf A should be allowed to live free. Wolf B should be killed.
  5. Wolf A should be allowed to live free. Wolf B and its pack should be killed.
  6. Both Wolf A and Wolf B should be open to recreational hunting. Either wolf should be killed if it strays into a livestock-production area.
  7. Both Wolf A and Wolf B should be open to recreational hunting. Either wolf and its pack should be killed if it strays into a livestock-production area.
  8. Both Wolf A and Wolf B should be killed.
