This is animal cruelty, plain and simple. Persons who injure or kill wolf-dog hybrids should get used to warming a jail cell, plain and simple. This article points out that these creatures, too, deserve our kindness and consideration, and that many people actually LOVE (not fear) them.

To say that wolf-dogs (wolf hybrids) are misunderstood is a serious understatement. Sadly, people in general just don't take the time to understand anything they don't and it scares them. The "big bad wolf" theory is just an excuse so if something is done to a wolf hybrid "people" can feel better about it. These animals deserve love, respect, and kindness just as much as any other animal. Yes, a wold hybrid may have a different temperment than a dog with no wolf in it but that depends on many things and it is necessarily a given. Besides, personality varies from dog to dog no matter what breed or mix of breeds they are.
As for the killing of small animals, including smaller size dogs, to automatically blame it on the wolf hybrids is predjudiced. An animal that is loose and on its own has to find shelter, food, and water. In this situation, ANY dog (or cat for that matter) is capable of killing for food or because they feel threatened or because they perceive another animal to be in their territory. This doesn't just happen with wolf hybrids ~ dogs are predators and we'd do well to remember this.
Respect these wolf hybrids ~ give them the care, love, and protection they need.
