Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Question Mysterious wolf-like creature shot in northcentral Montana near Denton

It's not a bob-tailed coyote, that's for sure.

Was it a wolf, some type of hybrid, or a creature that hasn't been seen in Montana since the Ice Age?

On May 16 a lone wolf-like animal was shot and killed on a ranch outside Denton. With long grayish fur, a large head and an extended snout, the animal shared many of the same characteristics as a wolf; but its ears were too large, it's legs and body too short, its fur uncharacteristic of that common to a wolf.

So far, the exact species is a mystery

So what was it? At this point, no one is 100 percent sure.

The only time you learn that the truly dangerous man is mad at you is a split second before you die, for he never fights. He only kills. The truly dangerous man knows that fighting is what children do and killing is what men do." - Charley Reese 1986

That one is easy, it is a raccoon/turtle cross with mange. At least that is what I was told when I shot one and it disappeared into a DNR truck and was sent to the university for DNA tests and was never seen again and no one would tell me a damn thing about it after that. I may be dumb, but it sure weren't a raccoon, they don't cross with turtles, opossum maybe...

Wars happen when the state tells you who the enemy is.
Revolutions happen when the public figures it out themselves.

Get in your vehicle and exit the A.O. Now go to Cabela's and just buy new gear. Do not mess with the Chupas.

Canid Animal Shot Near Denton Draws Attention

A large wolf-like animal shot and killed May 16 by a rancher near Denton has wildlife officials

and the public wondering what it was.

Here’s what is not in question: The animal came within several hundred yards of the rancher’s

livestock. He shot it and reported it as required by law. The animal was a young, non-lactating female

and a canid, a member of the dog family, which includes dogs, foxes, coyotes and wolves.

Those facts are not unusual in Montana’s farm and ranch county.

The animal originally was reported as a wolf, but several Fish, Wildlife and Parks’ wolf specialists

looked at photos of the animal and collectively doubted it was a purebred wolf: the canine teeth were

too short, the front paws too small and the claws on the front paw were too long.

Nevertheless, social media was quick to pronounce the animal as everything from a wolf to a

wolf hybrid to something mythical.

Rather than guess, FWP sent the carcass to the Department’s lab in Bozeman where tissue

samples will be collected, then shipped to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Laboratory in Ashland, Org.

In a laboratory, scientists extract DNA from cells, looking for markers specific to individual

species. Those markers are then compared to samples of known species on hand.

While the process may take a week, just getting to that stage may take weeks or months,

depending on the laboratory’s backlog of cases.

All of which means it may be awhile before the anyone really knows what the animal near

Denton really was.

Mysterious wolf-like creature killed in Montana ID'd through DNA test

The Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) revealed the identity of the mysterious wolf-like creature that was shot dead in the state last month. Officials confirmed in a news release Monday that DNA results proved the animal was a gray wolf.

“The lab compared the animal’s DNA with thousands of other DNA samples from wolves, coyotes and dogs. The conclusion was clear – this animal is a gray wolf from the northern Rocky Mountains," the statement read.

Montana FWP officials initially weren’t certain what the creature was when a rancher fatally shot it on his property.
