I watched this movie last night called Frozen about 3 skiers that get stranded on a chairlift.  It was pretty good.

Um, believe it or not Dave, not every resort is like The Canyons, Deer Valley or Aspen.  Most little resorts are laid back, and seeing an overweight liftie smoking and wearing earmuffs isn't all that uncommon.

But, being unfamiliar with New England resorts, can anybody tell me if there are indeed wolves up there?

We have wild turkeys in Colorado too.  But I honestly don't think wild turkeys would be something to fear.  Even if a large number of them surrounded a person and did a group attack I don't think the result would be fatal.  Wild turkeys have beaks and no teeth.  So the main damage done by turkeys would be from pecking at a person's flesh, whereas a wolves can tear and bite.  It probably would take at least 50 turkeys attacking simultaneously to overpower and kill a human being.  But I figure it would only take two wolves to kill a person...or one wolf to kill an incapacitated person such as the one in the movie Frozen.  My numbers might be off a little, maybe someone could offer a bit more insight on the subject.

unless the turkeys came from the crazy scientist in south park and your name is kenny, whe ive seen a flock of turkeys its been 10-15 sometimes 20 but it would be rare to see more, they would probably run from humans as they would see us as predators, but if they did fight they would peck scratch and grab what they could

No, the wild turkeys I've seen in Colorado have traveled in packs of 60-100 and the turkeys themselves are as big as a labrador.  I suppose if it was the middle of winter and the edibles were scarce, human flesh might not seem so unappealing to a pack of wild turkeys.

Falcon, that thing is terrifying.  I would definitely not want to encounter one of those after jumping off a chairlift and breaking both my legs.

If we have it in New Jersey they probably have them in New England.

 

There had been accounts of wolves in White Township in the area past Johnny's Hot Dog Stand (I'm sure that was on Phil's list of stops), the papers claimed all these sightings.  On my way to teach up in the Pocono's (probably about 6:30'ish), it came across a field of corn stubble and was easy to spot against the light and thin cover of snow.  Fangs dripping with blood and veins ... anyhoo it sure was not a lost puppy.  Real of just baloney?  About three years ago I had a guy in to do HVAC upgrades and in the banter he starts in about his "hobby" of raising hybrid wolves.  Now he just happened to live up the hill from that exact spot on Rt. 46 where I saw the critter (right at the home made pie stand), cross the road.  Now the reason it was in the papers was that that the neighbors were complaining that they were not hybrid or cross breeds but they were wolves and they were getting out.  Now, he claims he never had one escape?

 

Lots of critters that were extinct have been reestablished.  Turkey are common as heck, cougars usually escape from idiots who keep them as pets.   Heck there was a kid arrested in Jersey City a few weeks ago because he had a pet Cobra.  Be careful about what to fear and what not to fear.  Geese?  Yeah, geese are nasty critters and I had one domestic goose chase me.  Those strong wings can break limbs.  I later found out that the Belgian Blue Goose is raised and kept like watch dogs in France.  There is a time to know when to run and at first my fishing buddys were laughing at me.
