    Wolf re-introduction survey for livestock farmers

    Hello,

    I'm a student it would be really helpful if you could take my survey on the possibility of re-introducing wolves to the UK. I am very interested to understand the opinions of livestock farmers in relation to wolves. The survey has been calculated to take less than 5 minutes and it is all multiple choice. So, it is quite quick to complete. If you would like to take it for me then that would be great! The link has been posted below.

    Many thanks,
    Joshua

    Before deciding to complete a survey, I like to glance at all the questions. But like most on-line surveys, this one won't allow
    me to go to the next page before completing the current page. So I won't be taking part.

    I 'm all for them introducing wild MILFS or is it minx? A few dirty cougars would certainly do the trick.
    Anyway I'm all for the wildlife!

    Lots of guessing questions so sorry, I only respond to surveys if I know about the subject. You need proper answers and not our guess work.
    Don't itch for something if you're not prepared to scratch for it.

    The questions that really need the answers are those on the last page as in who should pay for the loss by wolves and as sure as eggs are eggs it will not be the daft sods who bring them back into to the country.

    I know exactly what you mean. Surveys that do this can be annoying. Therefore, I have changed it so that you do not have to complete questions before continuing. So if you are still interested then definitely check it out. However, it would still be really helpful if everything could be filled in

    Thanks a lot

    I completed it and it didn't take long, my initial thoughts on wolves could be summed up as "wild wolves released in the UK, what could possibly go wrong?"

    On the bright side, a 'beware of the wolves' sign might discourage ramblers.

    The last sentence has a very important point hidden in it: if members of the public of any sort are put at risk by an introduced animal, then those people MUST be allowed to defend themselves: human rights legalities and all that guff. Revolvers? I don't fancy the idea.

    for most people, taking a revolver to a wolf fight would be like getting in a pissing contest and choosing to stand down-wind.

    Not quite the same thing as rating a particular post, but you can rate the thread- go right to the top of the tread you are looking at and click "Rate This Thread" which will then show up as these yellow stars when your looking at the board overall-

    I wondered how this was done. Thanks for telling.

    I agree, but how many of those "most people" would realise that? That's really my worry.

    Im all in favour of reintroductions, as long as they trial it for 3-5 years in Hyde park.

    Why not widen the area - everywhere inside the M25.

    I can think of few things less desirable than the release of wolves in any part of the UK. Perhaps releasing a horde of bears or maybe a few thousand mink- oh wait, that has been done already.

    Releasing a few thousand wild dogs would not work in the UK and I see little reason that wolves would, either.

    What about wolves in the Highlands as natural dear culling?

    Talk to the farmers in western Canada and western US (next to the Rockies) - wolves will cull deer, cattle, sheep, . . . they are even known to go after campers
