According to the Washington Post.
And not a damned thing about the DNA, but it is way too soon, to have any results…But not even did they mention that they were testing to compare stomach contents, or DNA left at the scene, and on the body…(which I can only hope they collected)
I had read that they intended to match bite marks on the victim with the corpses’ teeth and jaw composite of the two dead wolves.
If they go to enough trouble to do that, they would be making a good accounting of an investigation. I would hope that is the case as to defray the usual “undocumented kill” category of wolf attacks…
This will not meet the criteria of a “documented wolf attack”
1. there were no witnesses
2. they can probably show the wolves may have once eaten “human food” (garbage)
In order for it to be a “documented attack”
1. there must be witnesses
2. the victim must die
3. the wolf must not be sick
4. the wolf must never have been “fed”
Any “habituated” wolf attack does not meet the criteria. Unfortunately no matter what we do to lock up our pet food and garbage, wolves are still easily habituated just be living in close proximity to humans.
So human habituated wolves are in the same caregory as rabid wolves? If it IS true that only rabid wolves ever attack humans, & you’re attacked by a wolf, that could make it worse news because rabies is a virtual certainty.
