Recently I brought up the subject of wolf hybrids.

Twenty five years ago I know of someone who had a wolf enclosure on her property for breeding purposes. Today the practice of having wolves in an enclosure is abhorrent to many people including myself unless it is by groups like Mission Wolf (preservation) and zoos ect.

Often people have a hard time projecting themselves back in time and remembering what was going on, what were the headlines in the newspapers ect.

I was wondering if anyone has any info on when these kinds of practice became illegal. Where they always illegal, how many permits might have been given in one year at the time if this was possible. Basically any info dating back on this subject.

I don't want opinions just facts backed up with valid links or verifiable info.

Ontario's Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act, 1997, S.O. 1997, c. 41

Under the heading wildlife in captivity:http://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/html/sta...f41_e.htm#BK46
It is prohibited to keep wildlife in captivity.

My question is was this the year these laws came to exist?

If so this would explain why someone still possess wolves on a property in 1987. The year of the birth of my daughter and dog and not six years later when I revisited the breeder. Our dog was born at the same month as our daughter and picked up when they were respectively two months old.

Also might explain why a breeder of that time would not be labeled immediately "unethical" for doing this.
