Thanks Furry one... this is just unreal.... "Borisov has called for special hunter brigades to be formed and provisioned with “everything necessary” in order to counter the wolf threat. AND making it another CONTEST!

He has also promised six-figure rewards for the three best hunters, and said he would announce the exact sum of the prizes later.

Yakutia is the area far north of Mongolia in Taiga and Tundra. It is a large place more suitable for the Wolf than for man.
As you know science does NOT support that predators should be managed by humans, much less that management should be done to suit human purposes.

The Wolf is a highly intelligent and communicative social species.

While humans do such atrocity, they look to the stars and to imaginary beings for the connections to life, beauty, and others, which they seem to have purposely abandoned in the case of Earth's other intelligent species.
These species know and understand that we seem to be psychotically dangerous and nothing else.

If you watch the videos eagerly posted by wolf-killers, you will understand the desolation and moral devastation of wolf-killing.
Those who are instead pleased by it, suffer a seemingly incurable severe psychiatric disorder. Is that the definition of your culture you prize?

Do you remember the news from last year? The Siberian wolves have changed their habits to survive. "24 teams of hunters armed to the teeth, and with snowmobiles and helicopters had to deal with the burgeoning wolf problem."

Imagine the hangover they must have had! Just proves the point that elephants do not belong in circuses!

Okay, wow, I just had a brain commercial. After reading the story about the wolves, I read a story about 2 elephants who's lives were saved when their handler gave them vodka to keep them warm after their trailer caught on fire. They were part of a traveling circus.

Anyway, I am heartsick over this non-stop persecution of wolves all over the world. Humans just can't stop their bloodthirsty attacks on animals and they won't be happy when there are no more animals to kill.

Is there no where that wolves are safe and left alone? We are intruding in their territory and then blaming them when things go wrong.

I fear that we are only preaching to the choir while the congregation is listening to the news media and the entertainment industry depicting the wolves as ruthless killers of humans, while the greedy ranchers are using the hunters to do the dirty work and protect their bottom line.

Here is the news on video:

Thanks Cher!
