When A Wolf Dies

One of their members had fallen behind, and the others called to her, and listened for her reply. It came from far away, a single note of loneliness that hung in the air. Found! Her pack mates tipped back their heads, and howled again, longer, louder.

Roxy, I hope you will realize that progress IS occurring - this article is in Psychology Today, a popular magazine that originally focused upon and attributed psychological states, such as distress, only to humans.

Heartbreaking. And all basically due to human bloodlust. More and more often now I am ashamed of humanity and prefer animals. Bless this poor lone wolf. How he has suffered...

Like Michael M mentions, glad to see the article being in Psychology Today. Hoping more people will realize the error of their ways. Thanks Roxy.

Surprised to see an article on wolves in PsychologyToday.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is now accepting comments from the public on its decision to remove wolves from the protection of the Endangered Species Act. The agency has a 90-day public comment period. Its final decision will come in 2014.

Read, comment in this link:

IMO, Dan Ashe is not a friend of wildlife nor for protecting endangered species. Example: One of the dumbest arguments, excuses I've heard in years. These people, David K. Reinke, CEO of Liberty Parts Team, John J. Jackson, III, of Conservation Force, Dan Ashe, director of the USFWS, who ok'ed the hunting, killing and importing an endangered Black Rhino specie.

For the first time in 33 years, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) has granted a permit to an American hunter to import a black rhino trophy from Africa.
The move certainly set a precedent for importing endangered species trophies – it’s the first time any endangered species trophy has been allowed into the states – and has stirred up controversy about whether or not killing an endangered species can help save them.
Black rhinos are protected under the Endangered Species Act and listed as critically endangered under Appendix I of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), which governs their hunting and bans trade unless there are “exceptional circumstances.”

Dan Ashe, Director's Corner. See and read, comment on what he "says".

Ty, Roxy.

Why oh why, are some people SO intent on killing every last wolf? The very same people who want to kill the very last mustang and burro, the very same people that want to kill the very last bison, in fact, killing is ALL they want to do. Pathetic, ignorant, indifferent morons, every last one of them. But hang on, they can always worship their mighty dollar, their car, their surgery-enhanced body and their perfect 2.4 spoiled brats. Its just a pity they have no heart, are brain-dead and soul-less. I actually feel sorry for them that they will NEVER look at nature and our world through caring eyes.

I do not understand why the officials of Yellowstone don't fight for their wolves- even if they didn't give a crap about the wolves themselves, what about the wolf pack's group dynamic that is the tourist draw? And I hate the warped logic of the judges, who claim that the wolf hunter has the "Right" to "take" a wolf. Why the f*ck is the hunter's right to slaughter and take a wolf greater than my right to see a living wolf?

Wolves are so magnificent.!!!! Their beauty, brains, and the rules they live by, they are more with the" program than humans".!!!! Wolves have rules if any creatures,human or animals, break those rules, hell is paid.!!! THIS SHOULD BE WHAT WE DO TO HUMAN WOLF MURDERERS.!!!!

Yellowstone NPS officials are under oversight of their bosses, and cannot really officially interfere in actions occurring off Park boundaries. The many biologists are using their observation and expertise to assist in the effort to create buffer zones - but they must work within only their sphere of expertise, or else they are subject to censure and perhaps loss of job.
They work hard and fast to publish about the trauma - social and physical, and government scientific documents are important parts of Nonprofit org suits over just such malpractices as are occurring. Judges with their individual biases can rule on evidence relevance, and you have to look at ALL the legislative, regulatory, and judicial processes to understand.

Very sad story. I will fight for the wolves. The problem is those in these government departments are hunters and they should not be making comments for the rest of us. They have no regard for a life.

The US gov't has become a tool for the ranchers. Sanctioned killing of wild animals is a crime against nature and should not be supported by tax dollars.

Animals, not just humans, love and grieve.
Do individual animals matter? I believe each individual animal matter!

Thank you Roxy!

I do not even want to read this article - it is beyond my comprehension that mankind, who are supposed to be the guardians and protectors of animals on earth, can inflict this much cruelty upon animals that cannot even defend themselves against us. These beautiful wolves have to fight for their own survival when we are the ones that should be helping them survive. God clearly created monsters in us humans.
