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.

If the group is called "Anti-Wolf", then why does it say on the front page, "Hate the Ignore, Not the Animal"?

That's like making a group called "Anti-Muslim", but then saying "Hate the Religion, Not the Followers of the Religion".

Guys, sorry for the ranty-ness nature of this, but I feel that I need to get this off my chest.

I love Biology. Always have, always will. And as we all know, evolution is the corner stone of modern Biology. Yet, in our AP Bio class, I've seen our teacher blatantly misrepresent (macro) evolution, stating that it has never been observed, there are no vestigial structures, using ad hominem (God-hating scientists, really?) for scientists (she calls them 'evolutionists', but that term more or less refers to someone who specializes in evolutionary biology) and it hurts those who knew how it works. I called her out when she gave her example of macroevolution (a dog producing a non-dog), saying that's not how it works. And her reply?

"Yes it does, M."

And holy shit was I mad. A lot of her rebuttals for (macro) evolution are mostly ' I can't understand it, so it didn't happen', or it's too complicated to have arose by chance. She apparently expect transitional fossils to be something like a crocoduck. And she's SCIENTIFICALLY LITERATE, yet is willfully ignorant and chose dogma over science. We agree on a lot of things (eg animal testing), and I'm not saying that she has to drop her faith, because she can believe in anything she wants. But this blatant misrepresentation? I won't allow it.

Another bill is currently making its way through the Senate in order to remove gray wolves from the Endangered Species List. When we have to ask ourselves, "why go through this process?" we must remember that it is the environmentalists who have exploited the language of the Endangered Species Act in order to keep wolves protected instead of delist them. They fear that proper state management will only lead to extinction.

The bills currently in action:
S.405 - To protect and enhance opportunities for recreational hunting, fishing, and shooting, and for other purposes. (Note that the text is not updated for the 2016-17 amended version of the bill).
S.2281 – A bill to direct the Secretary of the Interior to reissue final rules relating to listing of the gray wolf in the Western Great Lakes and Wyoming under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, and for other purposes.
H.R.1985 - Pacific Northwest Gray Wolf Management Act of 2015, 114th Congress (2015-2016). To prohibit treatment of gray wolves in Washington, Oregon, and Utah as endangered species, and for other purposes.
H.R.843 - Western Great Lakes Wolf Management Act of 2015. This bill prohibits any wolf of the species Canis lupus in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan from being treated under any status of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, including as an endangered species, a threatened species, an essential experimental population, or a nonessential experimental population. Each of those states are given exclusive jurisdiction over the management of those wolves within its borders.
H.R.884 - To direct the Secretary of the Interior to reissue final rules relating to listing of the gray wolf in the Western Great Lakes and Wyoming under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, and for other purposes.
