Wolf Perceptions

Scarcely without exception, the wolf stirs more emotion—from love to loath, reverence to revile—in people than do any other non-human animal. That’s because wolves embody all that is wild.

Those who love wilderness see the presence of wolves as evidence of an ecosystem intact. But wolf-haters see them as a direct threat to the unnaturally structured world their ancestors tried to impose on the Earth.

Meanwhile wolves see humans as strange awkward fleshy monkeys who can never be fully trusted.

  1. Well put, and in a nutshell version for anyone who isn’t involved yet. Two paragraphs to sum up the wolf issue! I couldn’t do that! Until people stop treating politics like a football game, DC will remain the moron infested swamp it is today where the majority of congressmen refuse to believe in climate change or if they do, they think God is doing it. People, the best thing you can do to save wolves in the long run is ‘delist’ the morons in congress who do not represent your views or the wellbeing of the wolves, come voting day. Get involved. Know what your reps vote for or against. Next election, you can “hire” a person that has a track record of pro-wolf votes or pro-wolf organizational involvment. You may have to run, yourself? I could go on and on but this is Jim’s blog. 🙂

  2. Wolves are so beautiful, and over the millennia they earned the RIGHT to be meat eaters, the hard way, the honorable way, on their own, no glaringly unfair artifice or devices, no cheating except for needed cunning…no drunken perverted cavorting over the dead or posing for grim photos with ugly smiles on their faces…they do it as best they can and only for required food, only for survival as nature requires of them. So they’re everything meat-eating people are not, and certain people HATE them for that. While wolves hate no one and have their rightful place in nature.
