You know, Rox, I always used to believe (this is an admission of male failing by me) that photos of the young of animals like the wolf were ways to create cuteness-as-value.
I figured out a couple hours before dawn this morning when the old wolf could not arise, or even be awakened, something about my failure to understand.

He spent most of his life with me, a fierce, craggy-looking natural leader of a wolf. Yet in his older age, he responds more like a tiny puppy, and I thought of his WHOLE life, since his birth perhaps almost 11 or even 12 years ago.
Now I understand a little of your own feeling toward Sarasheena and others whom you worked with across their lives, until they were cut short by this last hunting season.
Once long ago of lost friends, I said that we are all children in death.

Thank you for spending your life to help another life, each of their lives, to become full, whole, complete, as what they were and are intended in this universe, to be.

Many of you received a similar call to action, as the one below, a couple of weeks ago regarding the situation of wolves in Montana. It is repeated here because we do have a chance to protect wolves in Montana and the Rockies if enough of us step forward and take the actions listed here. Please help!
____________________________________________

Montana is a big and beautiful state in the Northern Rocky Mountains of the United States. But during the past two years Montana's politicians have allowed a minority of their more violent and heartless citizens, and like-minded others from outside the state, to persecute and kill over 300 innocent and ecologically vital wolves that lived within the state. In 2011, Montana's own Division of Fish, Wildlife and Parks estimated the total wolf population there to be about 550 wolves.

There is a glimmer of hope, of positive change for wolves in Montana, and for all of us who respect and admire wolves and want them protected. Montana has a new Governor, Steve Bullock, who campaigned with reason and decency. He did not pander to the wolf haters and kept an open door to the many wolf defenders who met him.

Now, Governor Bullock has the opportunity to demonstrate right from the start that he is indeed a man and a leader who respects ecology, healthy ecosystems and the importance of natural predators, including wolves.

The Montana House of Representatives recently passed House Bill 73. This perverted bill is now before the Montana State Senate. It is intended to accelerate the torture and massacre of the remaining wolves in Montana. If passed and signed by Gov. Bullock, it will allow each sport killer to kill more wolves, reduce the cost of out of state licenses to kill wolves, allow sport killers to use electronic calls of wolf pups in distress to attract concerned wolves, allow killing of wolves on the perimeter of Yellowstone National Park with no buffer zone and on and on. The devil himself could have written this bill.

The facts speak for themselves:
There are approximately 2,500,000 cattle in Montana. In 2011, just 74 cattle were confirmed to be taken by wolves. 74 out of 2,500,000. That tiny tiny number is statistically zero. But, pathetic cattlemen continue to spread hysterical lies about wolves killing their non-native cattle in numbers too numerous to count. These same cattlemen rely on the ignorance and apathy of the general public, so they can continue their demonization and slaughter of America's native wolves and coyotes and mountain lions and bison and wild horses and prairie dogs and anything else that moves.

As for elk, the principle prey of wolves in the Rockies, Montana had 90,000 elk before wolves returned to their native homeland in Montana. Today with wolves back on the land, the state of Montana estimates the current elk population at 140,000. More wolves equals more elk and the elk are much healthier now that wolves are keeping them on their toes, just as nature intended.

Wolves are vital, innocent, highly social, intelligent and family-oriented beings. It is humans that are the mass killers of wolves and every other animal they can shoot, trap, poison and destroy. It is ignorant and violent humans who must be managed and restrained, and who must finally learn to live on this Earth respectfully and with compassion for non-human beings who have as much right as humans to live and prosper across the planet we share.
_________________________________

This week's WOLF DEFENDER ACTION is to contact Montana's new Governor, Steve Bullock. Please be respectful and polite. Gov. Bullock is brand new to his position and has taken no action to hurt wolves.

Ask Governor Bullock to put an end to the persecution and massacre of wolves in Montana. Ask him to veto Montana House Bill 73. Ask the governor to be the first governor in the Rocky Mountains to show compassion, decency and respect for living wolves, in Montana and throughout the Rockies. Ask Gov. Bullock to acknowledge the indispensable and positive role, wolves and every other natural predator performs in every healthy ecosystem. Ask him to protect America's wolves.

Here are three ways to contact Governor Steve Bullock:
(Please be polite and respectful and consider doing all three. I was told he reads letters that are mailed to him directly.)

1. By Phone: 1-406-444-3111
2. By EMail: governor@mt.gov
3. By US Mail:
Governor Steve Bullock
Office of the Governor
PO Box 200801
Helena, Montana 59620

Thank you, for America's ecologically vital and beautiful wolves,
Robert Goldman

It is time to completely end nonessential"sport" hunting.

I've messaged legislators on gun control being expanded to include:

No guns for poachers, those who participate in animal killing "competitions", or those who are convicted of any threats to environmental advocates or animal advocates.

Because felons are not permitted gun ownership, it is time to expand felony to terrorist threats even via email of website comment.

I hope you will join me.
