What are we doing? Why are we killing off the wolves? We know better! I am kind of in shock, because I have always been aware of the cause of saving them, but never looked into it. I can not say that saving wolves is something I have ever actively tried to do. It's almost too real, it's not like saying I am against war, which is sort of ethereal, because there is only so much I can do to help stop these wars, to actively take part, but saving wolves? That should be easy, people just have to stop killing them, now! It's as simple as that.

I want to help, and I think people should be more aware of this, and other native species to North America that are being wiped out for the almighty dollar. I want to try to learn more about their plight, and their fate is in our hands, the humans who would save them, instead of kill them.

Live and let live.

True, unlimited, so true, and sad...<br />
...we humans are wrecking the family of earth, we are so selfish and blind.<br />
If the animals were smart enough they would rise up and kill us!<br />
I know that wolves are only one of the creatures we have decimated on this planet. If we went into the list of living things destroyed just yesterday, I would probably go into deep dark depression. Corporations and greedy ranchers have helped destroy too many animals that keep the balance. How can we stop them?<br />
Humans are too centralized, for business' sake. Cities are a blight on this planet and create unlivable spaces for most of earth's creatures. Sure they can adapt, but they won't evolve further, they will die off in the places we inhabit so thickly.<br />
Except maybe the cockroaches, flies, and rats, who thrive on our garbage!

She is really a Palin in the a88. For people, and animals. Killing from afar is easier, that's what is sad about technology today, we use it to kill instead of save. Shame on us for not letting more game be preserved for its natural predators.

No one seems to care about real wolves, just about pretending to BE one...well, except MusicMouse, who has done plenty for wolves, real wolves...why don't people care? I guess it is the same as I felt the other day, everyone thinks everyone else will take care of these things, and not let them go extinct, but, it is nearly too late...<br />
...something has to happen soon or they will ALL be gone...<br />
It's MAN vs WOLF in the fight for the fittest? No, of course we are more fit to survive. But are we so selfish we won't share some elk, rabbits, moose, sheep, cows, and deer with them? We have plenty!<br />
Wow, it is astounding how greedy we can be as a species, and how deadly.
