Alberta and British Columbia have been scapegoating wolves for fossil fuel extraction problems: Caribou need vast areas of undisturbed habitat to survive, and those areas where they are endangered are the very areas roaded & shattered by mining

This, one of the world's MOST endangered species, is into a tiny population widely dispersed in arid mountains of the SW. Humans have been illegally killing Mexican Wolves fast, and the reintroduction has been difficult in this face.

In Phillipines. Had to post, as horses should be allowed to be wild and free, not gelded, stallions (who do fight for harems fiercely in nature, but who have the option to run away). You now know tht humans will trap anything together for blood "sport."

Mendocin stillhas remnant forests and wilderness. USDA Wildlife Services is a bit too liberal in their lethal "control" methods, so this is a great step down there. more rural counties have difficulty with the domestic grazers and "sport' hunting lobbies

Worth a read, as there are more indicators of such differences than listed - it's always good to get up to speed. Dogs have been selecteed for their ability to live closely with humans, which are a rather demanding group of primates...

Chris applies his brilliant mind to the problem of eating animals, and using animals as domestic slaves to furnish food. His quotes from Franz Stangl, commandant of Treblinka Death Camp will hopefully allow you to make the cognitive connection

And a pack is a loving, sometimes squabbling family, but most all the time, loving. "Listing the results of wolf hunts as total or quotas ignores an essential truth: the death of a wolf...throws the delicate social order of the pack into disarray"
