Here’s a link to an interesting article in The American Prospect about wolves and wolf management in the Western U.S. Everything I know indicates it’s accurate, fair, and thorough .
Wolves to the Slaughter, by Christopher Ketcham
Carter Niemeyer’s book Wolfer, referenced in the article, is fascinating, informative, and strangely comforting. Niemeyer has made it his life’s work to tell the truth about wolves. For that he is, shall we say, unappreciated in certain quarters. Telling the truth. What should be so hard about that?
More to come on that subject.
Give me a canine – any canine – any day. (Did I say that?)
As we canines know humans are for humans – and not much else.
Hi Bluebee, You have hit the nail on the head. What to do? I used to think that rational discussion could solve (all – most?) problems, but I no longer think so. It may be one reason I love animals so much – they know the truth instantly, without words. Can’t con them for a second.
As with many situations in life, many people do not want to face the truth because it does not suit their purposes and makes them confront their irrational fears. Interesting article, and some very scary people out there! Good to see you blogging again, Monica 🙂
Wonderful! I hope you enjoy the poems and I hope the encouragements encourage you! On the righthand side of my blog you will see a page called “Changed – A Series of Poems”. The series is about wolves–sorta kinda. I get into werewolfs sometimes, too. I will try and get all of my wolf poems linked to that page today, so you can find them easily. There are hundreds of poems on the site about all kinds of subjects. Thanks for the interest in my blog!
Hello Charles, Thank you for the lovely comment. I would enjoy reading your poems about wolves and on other subjects. I also plan to check out your “daily encouragements”. Thanks for visiting!
I love wolves (and dogs). When I was young, I read every book I could get my hands on about wolves. I’ve written many poems about them, too!
I love your blog; great stories, and beautiful pictures. I hope you get aall computer problems solved; I know how frustrating they can be!
The book is an eye-opener – as is the article. The more we hear and talk about this, the better, I think.
I heard something about this book on public radio one evening. Thanks for post more about it.
Yes, I agree with you.
