The article in Thursday's Dispatch about the wolf following or running alongside snowmobiles probably has many rooting for the wolf.

Those that are near snowmobile trails listening to some with the high torque motors, or people that are close to the motorcycles with their straight pipes understand what the wolf must be thinking when these are invading their neighborhoods.

The article says 15,000-20,000 sleds per season are up there every year. With all the negative publicity lately about wolves, hopefully this article didn't add fuel to the fire.

To see another example of sleds and wildlife, search for the video on YouTube by looking for Maine Couple Attacked By Moose. Here, two snowmobiles are following a moose when the moose decides she's had enough and turns to confront them.
