CANMORE — A wolf was fed a home-cooked turkey along the Bow Valley Parkway on the weekend in what appears to be an attempt by a wildlife photographer to get a picture of a well-known pack.

That's a pretty desperate attempt to get a good photo from folks that can't get one otherwise. Baiting animals for any reason in lots of states is and should be illegal. I wonder if they lie when they show those photos to friends?

At least they aren't shooting the wolves with both types of shooting devices like digital and gunpowder.

A wolf that is habituated to humans is a dead wolf. The baiting comes now, the gun powder comes later when someone else has to resolve the problems brought about by the baiting.
