To Those Who Love & Those Who Love Me


When I am gone, release me, let me go-
I have so many things to see and do.
You must not tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy that we had so many years.
I gave you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you have each shown.
But now it is time I traveled alone.
So grieve awhile for me if grieve you must,
Then let your grief be comforted by trust,
It is only for a while that we must part,
So bless the memories within your heart,
I will not be far away, for life goes on,
So if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can not see or touch me, I will be near.
And if you listen with your heart, you will hear
All my love around you soft and clear.
And then, when you must come this way alone,
I will greet you with a smile and "Welcome Home".

An obituary written about Wolf 527, one of Yellowstone National Park's beloved wolves.


Wolf 527  -- pictured below being fitted with a tracking collar -- was a successful and courageous mother and leader before she was gunned down in October.

6a00d8341c630a53ef0120a672b6f5970c-500pi2.jpg

Wolf 527 originated from the Druid pack -- one of the best known wolf packs in Yellowstone's Lamar Valley, the scene of numerous National Geographic and PBS documentaries.

For years, the movements of some of the members of this Yellowstone pack have been monitored by biologists and wolf-watchers equipped with radio tracking devices and powerful spotting scopes. One of those wolf-watchers wrote the obituary for 527 -- and I am honored to share excerpts of it with you today:

527 was a wolf that marched to the beat of a very different drummer. As a yearling, 527 left the Druids to join the Slough pack -- where she quickly became the beta (second-in-command) female. Then in 2007, she and a male wolf set off to found their own pack -- the Cottonwood Creek pack -- where she became the alpha (first-in-command) female.

As a leader of the Cottonwood pack, 527 was known to be a master of survival strategies. While four other packs that inhabited the same area suffered dismal fates, her pack thrived. As her biographer recounts: She was a genius wolf in her tactics. Strategy was her game and she was a master at it. She would return to feed her pups in the dark of night because she would not take the risk of crossing the road.

But in the end, despite 527's unbelievable survival strategies,
this resilient wolf was not able to outthink a rifle and was killed on October 3 when Montana unleashed its first public wolf hunt in modern times.

Since the public hunts began, 156 wolves in the Northern Rockies have met 527's fate. And over the next year, more than 500 wolves could be shot to death by hunters and government agents ... reducing the region's wolf population by a staggering 40 percent!

But the story doesn't have to end as sadly as 527's life -- if everyone who cares about wolves speaks out against this carnage now.

So please take a moment to join the national outcry to save wolves. Just click this link to tell the Interior Secretary to put wolves back on the Endangered Species list.

Thank you in advance for taking action on the wolves' behalf. Together, we can make sure that the death of 527 will not be in vain -- by winning back federal protections for the rest of Greater Yellowstone's storied wolves. 

 
IN MEMORY OF ALL THE YELLOWSTONE WOLVES WHO LOST THEIR LIVES BECAUSE OUR GOVERNMENT AND FISH AND GAME DECIDED TO TAKE THEM OFF THE ENDANGERED SPECIES LIST.

TO THE WOLVES OF YELLOWSTONE MAY YOU ROAM WILD AND FREE IN THE SKIES ABOVE.
