Most people think that wolves are a huge threat to their kids. But people who know a wolves, know that they aren't the animals that they should be particularly afraid of. In some places, like farms some farmers were not afraid of them, but they were afraid of them eating any of their livestock. Some farmers said that it's not the threat they pose to people but the threat they pose on their livestock. Most of the farmers in rural areas of the east coast say the wolves aren't a problem, it's the foxes. On the western coast, most people actually like to see them, especially the rare kind of that area. Some hunters in the western coast, said that the wolves do pose a threat on the hunting.
The keen eyes of a rabid wolves would spot you faster than you can spot them. Some of the hunters gave words of warning such as, "You have to more careful in a highly populated area of wolves then in a riot". A hunter from the Midwest had picked off a few wolves, but she also included having them spotting you way before you notice them. "I have a son who has had to get rabies shots on his left leg. He got bit while we went on a family camping trip a few miles north of Yellowstone National Park. Now we are more cautious than ever in our trips around all woods." That family is a woods kind of family, the father hunts, the son who got bitten used to hunt, and their daughter is learning to hunt.
The farmers that have farms closest to a highly populated area of wolves, even mistake foxes for wolves. These farmers get ready for them to strike their livestock and they do. They may not be as sly as a fox but may be as fast as one. The Wolves head for poultry normally, so the farmers expect that the wolves are going there. The farmers also are ready for the wolves to attack the bigger and bulkier stock.
However on the east coast the howl of the eastern Timber Wolf is rarely heard. Most people who hear the howl probably don't realize what they heard. Some people just ignore it because they may have thought it was just a regular old house dog. But if you knew your facts, then you would probably acknowledge the fact that you heard the howl of the Timber Wolf. Since it's so rare to hear one, it's even more rare to see one. And when you live a southern state like Tennessee, you may or may not see the eastern Timber Wolf every time you or some one you know hunts, but you can't count on seeing one around the neighborhood. Although encounters with the Timber Wolf is rare the eastern Timber Wolf may be the most commonly seen on the East Coast.
The opinion from regular neighbor hood folk in the northern region of the United States is that they are almost eager yet not so eager to encounter a wolf. In Alaska endangered wolves such as the Red Wolf won't last long. The habitat of these species are being taken over by the human population in Alaska. The people who live in the northeastern U.S.A., have more to look forward to because the chances of seeing one are gradually increasing. More wolves are pushing from Canada to the northern parts of the United States. The people living in these areas say that it's not unlikely in the summer to see a wolf or maybe a fox in your trash. Maybe if your lucky you'll see one jump right through your screen door, it's happened to a resident of Montana, she had a wolf jump right through her screen door. She was baby-sitting three kids and fortunately no one was bitten. She now follows the rule of,"Never leave your back door open."
