Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why was my join request denied?
A: You didn't read the rules.

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.

:bulletgreen: Genetic diversity in the Iberian Lynx is lower than in any other felids known to be genetically impoverished, including the Cheetah.
:bulletblack: This species is almost entirely dependent on a single animal as prey.

Horsaboos are just as bad, if not worse than wolfaboos.  Ran into another one today, complaining that the bison has been nominated as the national mammal and that they think mustangs deserve the title more.  They describe horses as "America's greatest living icons and symbols".  Hahahahahahahaha no.

The only thing horses are symbolic of is the conquest of the old west.  If you're looking for an animal that symbolized the old west before the "evil white man" came along, it ain't the mustang, which was only there in the first place because of the "evil white man".

Of course, they also called humans an invasive species so they pretty much flushed all credibility down the toilet.

Don't ya just love it when the media reports "shocking new information" that turns out to be years, and sometimes even decades old?  The media must really be scraping the bottom of the barrel this week.  I saw two articles about supposed "new" discoveries.  One involved the Titanic and the other was about dinosaurs.

The one about the Titanic said that they've discovered that there more icebergs in the sea in 1912 than normal, which may have contributed to the collision.  Problem is, this news isn't new information.  I watched a Titanic special from years back that said the same exact thing.

The article about dinosaurs says that "new evidence" suggests that birds evolved from dinosaurs.  :iconfacepalmplz:
Really?  Because I first heard that back when I was in freaking grade school!  I've seen in on numerous dinosaur specials over the years.  They must be really desperate to get people to read their crap.
