Re: Wolves in Alaska Can Now be Hunted in their Dens

FYI, I generally don’t allow discussion of these kinds of topics because they can be a bit heated. So let’s try to avoid moral/political characterizations.

Re: Wolves in Alaska Can Now be Hunted in their Dens

That article was surprisingly a short read; I was expecting something a little more in-depth from NatGeo but I suppose that's expected given that this issue has been covered in the media for quite some time. This is so sad. This better change soon. Unbelievable. Why would they allow that though? I t...

Re: Rules for Pack Central

Hi, I'm a returning player in Wolf Quest. So I'm re-familiarizing myself with a lot of the rules. I was wondering if a completely platonic friend can run a pack with you as an alpha, and would the word alphas be allowed to be used. TIA-Saiyan. Yes. https://wolfquest.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=7506...

Re: The General Giggle Thread for Wolves

Good find, indeed! I generally take opeds with a grain of salt, but this is one of those that should not have been published, in my opinion.
