This was a facebook status from someone who works at the Stewart county sheriffs office. I can find nothing online for it.

ALERT:
for people on and around the 2000 area of Leatherwood Road....wolves have escaped from the Watson place and are loose especially in the "West VACO" areas. We saw at least 8 around the 2065 area....be careful and call police if you see them and bring your animals in...these wolves look like german shepherds, but are darker and twice as big

It's on the internet, so it must be true.

Question is what are they doing with wolves in Tennessee? We have hog problems beating down our southern borders and some already here. This is the last thing we need.

If the Watson place is the same as Watson Wolves owned by Mark Watson, he raises wolf-dog hybrids. Might be some of his breeding stock has gotten loose.

Stewart County had some Buffalo's get loose a few years ago as well. Now Wolves! It is like a Little Yellowstone.

Found this article for you.

KINGSPORT, Tenn. - Officials of a nature preserve in Kingsport have closed it while they round up some wolves.

Six gray wolves strolled out of a fenced enclosure at Bays Mountain Park and Planetarium after a windstorm toppled trees that broke down the fence late Wednesday night.

Senior naturalist Ken Childress said today there were eight wolves in the pen and six got out. Three of those were lured back inside Thursday, but the other three were somewhere else, likely still within the 35,000-acre city-owned park.

Childress said the wolves had been raised in captivity and described them as "socialized" to humans, but not pets. He said he doubted the animals would approach people in the woods.

Childress said the park was closed so it would be easier for employees to find the wolves.

More details as they develop online and in Saturday's News Sentinel.

Those are the only true wolves that we are aware of in TN. The rest are wolf/dog hybrids. Even if they are primarily wolf in characteristics, they are regulated as a domestic dog by the Dept. of Ag

From the various posts in this thread, it sounds to me like someone needs to figure out where they are and what they are before anyone heads out on a wild wolf chase. Kingsport is a long way from Stewart County.

I understand that 8up. But the one I quoted was posted on this thread as though it might somehow be related to the original post. If the real truth ever comes out, we'll learn that a secret TWRA SWAT team facilitated the escape of the wolves (or whatever they are) to help control all the rattlesnakes they released in Stewart County (or Kingsport) years ago. I just posted it on the internet, so it must be true. \:\)

I hunt/live real close to that dern farm. I am on lease off east fork, those dern wolves are right on leatherwood road. my saw the man picking up roadkill with a shovel yesterday. guessing that is what he feeds them.

8up- I always heard they released the rattlesnakes for the turkeys, never thought it to be true though. guess it was.
