Removing gray wolves from the national endangered species list in the areas where they are still protected would be a mistake. The protections should remain, so that the species can continue its recovery and expand its range, just as the bald eagle

What wolves are up against in the present dominant human culture, is the human quest for complete control

I don't know whether this is an artifact of intensive and sedentary agriculture, primate social fear, or the most recent creation of private property (before perhaps the 16 to 1700s, there was on concept of the Earth as private property. Only feudal nobility really controlled land in a private manner - this largely in Europe.

Complexity increases with the cultural presumption of domesticity as well. Since dogs were bred for the puppy-like characteristics of acquiescence and any who developed enough to challenge, and as wolf and hybrid still do reject or counter abuse.

Knowing well a wolf for years, I am comfortable with his ability and practice of food getting. If you have seen the bloody face ad paws& forelegs, of a feeding wolf, it may disturb those of you who are fastidious while eating. he wolf does clean itself, though, and its rare to see remnants of this a few minutes later.

The wolf's pleasure in eating high-smelling carrion as caused human cultures to regard the wolf as disgusting and unclean (in south Asia, some o the persecution is relate to this, and American "hunters" also convince themselves of jut this fiction), whereas the wolf is one of the species that maintains the health and sensory beauty of the wild earth.

More carrion smell occurs in areas where big predators are absent. I've had to be a little careful that I don't get to used to such smells over the years, as decomposing organisms are more dangerous to us than to the wolf.
The brilliant light of their intelligence shines for only a decade at most, a difficult and exuberant short life, seemingly more at rest and more active and present than that of the humans I see.
No right to extinguish that light is ours.

Some people will only appreciate the wolf when they're extinct.

Make your choice now. Either a healthy wolf population, or proliferation of vermin like rats with Yersinia Pestis infected fleas. I'll choose wolves.

The livestock industry are the biggest proponents of the war on wolves! Please boycott beef and lamb- don't line their pockets with profits while our wolves die!

Nicely written article. I for one, will not forsaken the wolf. I will start a petition to have my legislators removed from office if they take the wolf off the Endangered species act.

Delisting the wolves is so wrong!
