BOOK Review
by Outdoor Writer Tom Claycomb III    APRIL 1, 2014
THE REAL WOLF by Ted B. Lyon & Will N. Graves. Let me preface this book report by stating a few facts. All the outdoorsmen and livestock owners that I know hate wolves. One reason is all the damage that they do but even more so is that they were deceitfully introduced and forced down our throats with such a barrage of lies. I have yet to read ONE honest report by the wolf lovers. Their whole marketing scheme was based on lies and deception.

What frustrated me as a writer is that the mainstream media refused to let me print an opposing view and yet the wolf lovers and the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) were allowed non-stop ink to promote their agenda/propaganda. In one newspaper I was not allowed to write one article concerning wolves. I was told that it was too hot of an issue and yet they got to publish articles weekly. A year later I finally got to publish one article.

So with the above said, it was refreshing to meet Ted via phone/email and find a book that was based on facts and scientific studies. I say that this book will soon become the leading factual documentary on wolves. Up until this point it has impossible to find the truth. (A kid put out a good movie titled CRYING WOLF).

As I started the book I underlined statements that I wanted to include in this review. By p. 19 I had enough facts to have written an article. So suffice it to say, I cannot begin to do this book justice. You have to read it for yourself for unbiased facts on the introduction of a foreign species into America.

Ted is a well-known trial lawyer and writes the book as such. In court he lays out the statements and then tries to prove whether they are true/false. He approaches writing this book in that manner.

Iím not a biologist. Iím an outdoorsman and just know what Iíve observed. What I personally know as facts, I found in this book so I trust what he is saying on the parts that I donít know.

For ex.
1. They lie about the number of livestock killed. If thereís a bear track at a wolf kill they say they canít discern if it was a wolf kill. Wolves came into a small mountain town and killed a mule. That kill wasnít in their report that year.
2. Wolves only kill the sick, lame and lazy. Studies show they kill 80% calf elk. They catch whatever is easy.
3. They wonít hurt wildlife populations. We packed into the River of No Return Wilderness Area and shot 3 deer, 4 elk, 1 bear and 1 moose. We went back three years later after the wolves had infested the area. I went back to work after three days. I didnít see one deer or elk.

Ted eloquently points out that we must go to Russia and other countries to see the end result of a bludgeoning wolf population. After the wildlife is eaten, people are next. America is close to this stage. Ex-In 1911 wolves wiped out all but two in a wedding party of 120 in Russia. This article was in the New York Times.
