Wolves- They don't seek to destroy but to live.

My favorite animal in the world is a wolf. They are simply beautifully wild. Wolves are hunters and survivors or at least they were until humans began to slowly and steadily wipe them out. What gives us the right to think it is okay to annihilate another species? WE encroach on THEIR territory, kill off THEIR food supply, block off THEIR water sources, and then kill them for taking food where they can find it. How utterly human of us to think that we have that right. Wolves are an important part of our ecosystem and CANNOT be replaced once they are gone. It is not the wolf that is the problem but the complete ignorance of humans that believe we must own and control everything we can see. At the bottom of this page is a video of wolves. The song playing is by Enya, I don't much like the singing in a language I don't understand but the pictures of wolves are absolutely breathtaking. These animals have more right to be here than we do. They don't seek to destroy, but to live.

  1. Much like what the white man did to the natives that lived before us. The government taking over land that they had lived on and then trying to control their lives. It makes me ashamed to be a so called white man as I learn more of the facts. How many Indian languages and cultures were destroyed all in the sake of progress. The natives lived in harmony with the animals and the land keeping the balance. If we had learned how to live on the land like the natives I do believe we all would be healthier and the balance of nature would still be in tack. It is a shame that some are excessively greedy that they think they need to slaughter off the animals and rape the land so they can have what was not theirs in the first place.
