I know there are a lot of people who think trapping is inhumane but let’s consider trapping wolves. I want you to listen to a small segment from the website how to hunt.com. “I’m on a private ranch. The ranchers are having an incredible problem with a pack of wolves. The reason is that the natural prey for wolves are almost nonexistent here. The wolves have gobbled everything up, which is natural, but now they are turning to the livestock. The wolves on this ranch have killed three full-sized cows and a couple of calves. that’s just in the last few weeks. It’s nonstop and they are not leaving the valley and going on tour like wolves normally do. They are staying here, feeding off beef and teaching their offspring how to feed off beef. There’s not enough game here for them to pray on naturally. The ranchers contacted me to give them a hand and we are going to go and start trapping this particular pack right now.” So, if you’re a rancher and you have a wolf problem, you might want to turn to Sportsmen’s Warehouse to get yourself a trap. I talked to sales associate Ronnie. "The only thing we have that I think you can use on wolves is going to be like the jaw traps. We have a few different sizes and styles of them. They run anywhere between $10 and $30 depending on the size.
