This picture appeared in our local paper a few days ago. Apparently, wolves have been going on a llama killing spree about fifty miles from here.
First of all - WTH? I had no idea wolves lived around here. Maybe in the mountains, and up north (those are the huge-headed Timber wolves) but these things? Look at his eyes - he's a killer! I just think it's weird that I never knew. You'd think I would have seen one, or heard a story about one.
Do you have these where you live?
Just to add insult to injury, I've also discovered that we have wild boars. They're not native to Alberta, but were brought here in the 90's for it's meat . Over the years they've escaped and bred and now there are about a thousand of them, and (thank goodness) the majority of them live north of Edmonton, which is quite a distance from where we are. Some of the local communities are even paying a $50 bounty if you take them a set of ears!
About the Llamas - we have many Llama farms around here! Llama's, Emu's and Buffalo farms are extremely popular for those farmers that don't want to run cattle.
