I have a general dislike of predators but I hate wolves, only one of two creatures I can say that about.

i find that very odd for somebody that has hunted all over the world and in many different ways ...

now whilst i have never had any dealings with wolves and as a man who loves dogs....and lurchers in particular and there hunting prowess i just find all wild k9's absolutely fascinating ...and I'm surprised a fellow hunter and lurcher man wouldn't think the same ..

so to say you hate them ..is very alien to me

Can't better that and totally agree.

I find wolves far more interesting than say, big cats etc...

A cracking kang. The hybrids that are used in the tatra mountains for catching wolves certainly pay the price and you right, each and everyone would happily bite you and anybody else.

 

My mate goes to Turkey few times a year, his mrs comes from there. He told me that up in the mountains, the Kangals are big rough buggers, who bite you no prob. These types are bred for work, and not for people outside Turkey, and there few types bred, some bred for fighting, but most are bred  from fighting lines, so they know that the dogs,  will not back down, from any confrontation, more so any wolves. The shepards norm have 3 - 4 Kangals loose with sheep/goats, as they need that many to fight pack  of wolves. The wolves in Turkey, Spain, etc are not as big as the grey wolves =timber wolves, these buggers go up to 14st, where the wolves in Turkey go  8-10st, but pack of 8 soon kill one kangal, so need 3-4 to tackle a packbthatscwhy they put spiked  collars on them. But my mate told me, you won't get many big breeds as strong and healthy a we bred kangal, they all have very powerful bite on them.

🤔 I guess the guy has got his own reasons,...I suppose it all depends on where you have lived, and what you have personally experienced. Wolves, and wild dogs, can certainly present major problems to a livestock keeper...

I've no feelings either way, regarding these amazing wild creatures,.. but I bet our skinny lurcher curs would pretty soon end up mullered, if we had Wolves prowling around our yards, at night... 

It must be emotional, waking up, to find your pet jukel ragged about, and left in several pieces🙄

My missus would go fecking mad❗

Strange comment from a man that hunts which makes you a predator along with your dogs …….

The people I met in Turkey had massive respect for their kangals...grave sites dotted around everywhere on the hills👍DSC_0125.JPG.62981efbb17e21c7edfb40c526d56018.JPGDSC_0057.JPG.95de6ea7579b45e617863f682130eaa6.JPGDSC_0071.JPG.fe40146c8cb59e069456a07b92b4341b.JPG

I didn't like the pariah dogs in the Middle East.

Rabies and mange ridden curs that were brave and would attack a human when in a pack, but cowardly individually 

Always carry a catty, I was always wary of rabies, one of my kids was bitten once and had to have his jabs.

I understand most people wont get it and I was the same and found them interesting to say the least.

But the day you have your own loved dogs torn apart by either of them you will understand.

I dislike most predators as during my lifetime I have had multitudes of my animals killed by them from my pet cavies to dogs and ferret to turkeys and even my fish collection.

I admire most and have had many as pets etc, but I do not like most with the exception of one or two like weasels and skunks.
