Guidelines and Submissions
:bulletgreen: Love your fellow Anti-Wolfers.
:bulletblack: Your account must be 3+ months old to join. When applying for membership, provide a reason why you want to join. "Love wolves, hate wolfaboos" doesn't sufficiently explain your interest in the group to us. If you are moving from a previous account to re-join, please link us to your previous account in your application.
:bulletgreen: We do not encourage/allow trolling here, nor will we participate in it.
:bulletblack: Do not post links to stupid comment chains, stupid people, or stupid deviations on or off deviantART in the comments section.
:bulletgreen: Submit your work to the proper folder.
:bulletblack: We don't accept screencaps or snark/parody work in the gallery.
:bulletgreen: Don't submit a stamp to the gallery if a similar stamp has already been submitted, unless yours is of better quality.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why was my join request denied?
A: Either you didn't read the rules, or we found your behavior questionable.

Q: Why do you hate wolves?
A: We don't. We do, however, despise the rabid, childish fanbase and ignorant wolf advocates.

Q: Then why do you have a kill counter displaying wolf death tolls?
A: The kill counter is strictly for informational purposes, and is a tool which a handful of self-proclaimed "pro-wolf" websites and organizations also utilize. Our numbers come from the Department of Fish and Game (for each state, respectively).

Q: Why are you called "Anti-Wolf?"
A: The name is meant to be provocative in order to draw attention to our cause.

Q: What exactly is the point of this group?
A: Our mission is to be a powerhouse of knowledge regarding wolves, informing the public about their true conservation status, proving the dangers of wolves to humans, debunking the lies perpetuated by radical animal rights groups, idiots on the Internet, and wolf advocacy organizations, and promoting the welfare of lesser-known species that truly need our help and attention.

Q: Can I join your group?
A: Absolutely. As long as you're not a wolfaboo and provide reason for wanting to join.

Q: What is a wolfaboo?
A: A person who recklessly advocates for the lives of wolves at the cost of human life and livelihoods, and the ecosystem at large, often harassing and employing threats of violence or death against anyone they perceive as "anti-wolf" (e.g., hunters, wildlife conservationists, taxidermists, furriers), as well as deliberately perpetuating false information about wolves in order to further their radically "pro-wolf" agenda. Not to be confused with wolf fans, who merely harbor a modest interest for the animal or enjoy drawing them.

Q: Your group location says North America; can I still join if I'm not from there?
A: Of course! Anti-Wolf is a global group. North America was selected because we focus moreso on wolves in the United States. We still provide information on wolves all across the world, however.

Q: Why did you hide my comment?
A: If your comment was hidden, chances are you broke the linking rule, or your comment was deemed nonconstructive/unnecessary. Such comments include those meant to negatively provoke group staff and members.

Q: How can I submit art to your group without upsetting my friends and watchers?
A: Submit your work directly to the group, and your watchers will not be notified.

About
Scientific name: Saiga tatarica
Common names: Saiga Antelope
Conservation status: Critically Endangered
Geographic range:
White: historic, red: current

Fun Facts
:bulletgreen: Their unusual, swollen nose is thought to filter out airborne dust during the dry summer migrations and to enable cold winter air to be warmed before it reaches the lungs.
:bulletblack: Before the breakdown of Soviet-era conservation programs, it was estimated that there were at least two million Saiga. Poaching for traditional Chinese medicine has decimated the species. After the recent 2015 epizootic, there may now only be 130,000.
:bulletgreen: In the 1990's, groups including the World Wildlife Fund actively encouraged hunting Saiga for their horns as an alternative to rhinoceros horn.

Have any of you heard of the saiga antelope deaths? This is truly terrifying, and saga antelopes are one of my favorite animals. :(

It breaks my heart. Knowing these animals are endangered is one thing, and this kind of horrifying unknown cause of death scares me.

Anyone hear about the new version of Wolfquest coming out?  Apparently you have to pay to play this one.
