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.

Fun Facts
:bulletgreen: This species was first discovered being sold in a food market in Laos.
:bulletblack: Habitat loss and fragmentation are major threats to this species as the nations they live in expand infrastructure and agricultural operations. Unregulated hunting, however, is the foremost threat. Despite this, there are no conservation plans for this species in Vietnam or Laos.
:bulletgreen: This species could possibly occur at lower densities naturally than other rabbits in southeast Asia.

I found this petition on Facebook, and I honestly don't know what to do and think. It's been a long time since I see something involved with my country.

I watched a terrible show on The Weather Channel last night, titled Natural Born Monsters. The entire buildup of the show was circulating the Minnesota boy that was attacked by a wolf (for those of you that remember, and I also made a stamp about that), and it finally led to the host saying that the cause of the attack was a "mutant wolf that escaped Isle Royale." If that isn't a conspiracy like no other, then I don't know what is. In any case, this is the main reason why I don't watch TWC. It's full of sensationalism and docudramas. The producers went to IWC with the intent to shoot their show and ambassador wolves (and at the time they apparently "didn't know what type of show" they were making at the time). Because, obviously, IWC would never let someone host a show titled "Natural Born Monsters" there. IWC was promised first screening months before it was aired, and they attempted to contact TWC, but to no avail. They were only allowed screening a few hours before it went live. Here is the immediate press release IWC sent out last night:…
