This morning a fan sent me this video because it made her think of me. It makes me think of me too. It also makes me sad for the wolves.
It is a beautiful video as far as I'm concerned but here in Montana such thinking is considered heresy. Wolves are predators you see. They kill, maim and harass. They take what they want even when they don't necessarily need it. Hmm, who does that remind you of?
Ranchers want wolves destroyed because they kill their herds. Hunters want wolves destroyed because they kill the game. That humans hate the wolf for killing domestic animals and wildlife is a real irony to me. Why? Because the reason people want to wipe out the wolf is so they can be the ones doing the killing. Wolves do what comes naturally. What's man's excuse?
If one took the time to study wolves they would find they are not much different than humans. Only we don't like to admit it and humans are probably a lot more violent toward their own species. We like to hold ourselves above the animals. That is a societal fantasy.
