    NO, not THOSE. :D
    Hopefully you all have some pics you can post here that are either questionable or so ridiculously obvious that they are laughable when some people believe them.
    Here's the pic that made me think of this:

    And here's the story...

    This wolf was found just out of Edson , Alberta .. Edson is just east of where
    many of our Yellowstone wolves came ( not sure what ‘found’ means.)
    Hi… I live in Buck lake Alberta Canada…. 20 min from Drayton Valley where the big wolf was shot… I found more photos of it and its said to weighed 197 pounds… The hunters were said to been baiting bear and the wolf chased off a large bear… we had a malamute husky that was this big.. as big as this wolf… the tracks are from a wolf that been eating our cows 2 or 3 a week… I’m sure if we fed our husky a large calf every couple days he would of been larger than the wolf…
    remember the camera angle can make things look bigger… like a hunter sitting behind a elk… makes the elk look bigger… believe it or not my brother who weighed 190 pounds grabbed my cousin who weighed 250 pounds and bench pressed him off the ceiling, he worked the service rigs… any man can easily lift a 200 pound wolf like these men are…
    I’ve seen the wolfs twice that have been taking down the cows and they look large to me… wolf hunter are welcome… happy hunting

    That wolf's head is a little big, but I figure if that guy stands somewhere in the range of 5'7", that dog could just be real. I have a few pictures of my buddies wolf from this last year and it looked big when he held it up. I can assure you, those Canadian wolves are very big dogs

    I shot a 60lb chihuahua with a pellet gun when I was 10. The kodak 110 instamatic made it look 10lb though.

    those camera angles dont make it look bigger than it is imo, he is basically 1' behind it , not 4'.

    The camera angle line works when a fisherman extends the 15" trout out to make it look like a small stealhead.
    We have lots of shots from behind elk where they dont look bigger, but then a spike or a forked horn can't be talked up to boone and crockett either.
    Shots 1&3 of the same guy , why do they look so different in quality?Bear weighed what, 100 or 300 lb? Makes a difference.

    Still, the story rings true, or close enough at face value.But I feel like we're trying to be convinced though ,like when my nephew saw a fat cat and knew it was a big porcupine, spent 10 minutes trying to convince me.

    Huskies don't get nearly that big. WTF are those guys smoking? And a wolf chasing off a bear? Dude fuck that.

    Yeah, total crap. Why is the guy's camo suit totally crisp and the wolf's fur blurred? That and I have never seen someone sport a shit eating grin while giving themself a hernia before.

    If you needed any more "evidence" that this is crap then use what limited knowledge everyone has of wolves- they hunt in packs. A single wolf chasing away a bear is not likely in terms of a wolf taking that kind of personal risk,or that a "large" grizzly was that easily deterred from a free meal.

    Oh and the tracks really aren't that big at all. A male German Shepard makes prints that big.
