We have another day with an eerie story. Unlike Red China’s ‘Ghost Cities’ this story concerns real life predators. A ‘Super Pack’ of wolves numbering around 400 terrorized a remote area of Russia, killing livestock and horses at will The '400'. No one has ever seen anything like it because packs usually run in the six or seven number. The authorities believe the intense cold sometimes dropping into the -49 degrees Centigrade range with little food drove wolves from hundreds of other packs together. I know the first reaction to Russia unleashing hunters to confront this ‘Super Pack’ is ‘awwwww… the poor doggies. Now granted, these wolves are beautiful creatures but really… 400 of them in a blood thirsty pack? Imagine 400 wolves howling at night around your little town in the middle of nowhere - great fiction material but scary reality. Definitely time to break out the AK47’s comrades.
