Hi all my Friends,
You should all know that I love dogs, so it is only natural that I would also love wolves! World-wide myths have made the wolf’s bravery, especially in defence of its young and family - the pack; from legendary to demonic. Fear is still in the hearts of heavily armed ‘hunters’ as they scour the reserves of the last of the North American iconic creature, the wolf.
No where else is there wholesale slaughter going on, except here in Africa against the rhino and elephant, an attack using every possible thing you can imagine, from steel traps, gas and poison; to slow killing but deadly bows and arrows, to high powered rifles fired from foot, snow sledges, helicopters and even planes. One of the biggest differences is that some Americans, especially the ranchers do it from fear, so they can gloat over the carcass and act brave after the death of an animal that they would wet themselves over if they met one on a forest path alone and unarmed.
I beg each and every one of you, to please take a minute and sign the petition below. We all have to stand and defend the sentient beings that share this planet with us; ironically against none other than our own species – mankind.
I signed a petition to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama which says:
"President Obama and his Interior Secretary, Ken Salazar, a Colorado rancher, have adopted unjust and heartless "tea party" policies towards America's wolves. And the U.S. Congress is equally guilty in this ecological and ethical injustice. Wolves are highly intelligent, native, and vital natural predators that belong on the land. Too many brutish ranchers and misguided hunters have unfairly demonized and maligned wolves for centuries. An American majority wants an end to demonization and massacre of America's wolves and other native wildlife."

Thank you all! You can call me soft, mad or even insane, but I would really appreciate you help in this matter.
I was extremely lucky that my son-in-law arranged for me to see real wolves and I had the chance to pat and hug a tame one, but the excitement of stroking and scratching a much wilder one - Thank you Nolan.
Hugs and howls ^---^ to all,
